2018-2019 Season Tryout Registration


Welcome to the 2018-2019 Tryout Registration! 
All of our tryouts are based on grade levels.  For reference, the following applies:
U10 - 4th grade
U11 - 5th grade
U12 - 6th grade
U13 - 7th grade
U14 - 8th grade
U15 - 9th grade
U16 - 10th grade
U17 - 11th grade
U18 - 12th grade
Athletes are required to try out by grade! If you arrive for the wrong grade level tryout, you will be asked to leave and return during your proper grade group. (The only exception is if you are too old, by USA Volleyball rules, to play in the age group for your grade level.  i.e. If you were born in September of 2003 and you are in 8th grade, you are too old to play 14s and must attend the 9th grade [15s] tryouts.)  For specific age definitions:


Tryout by grade!
11's - 5th grade and born on or after 9/1/2007
12's - 6th grade and born on or after 9/1/2006
13's - 7th grade and born on or after 9/1/2005
14's - 8th grade and born on or after 9/1/2004
15's - 9th grade and born on or after 9/1/2003
16's - 10th grade and born on or after 9/1/2002
17's - 11th grade and born on or after 9/1/2001
18's - 12th grade and born on or after 9/1/1999
Please NOTE: The age definitions provided above are shown in order to ensure that you are not too old to play in your grade level. Even if your birthdate would allow you to play in a younger age/grade group, Downstate forms all of our teams based on grade.
Most tryouts will be held at the Downstate Athletic Center (DAC) except the FDR High School satellite location. The tryouts held at FDR will be for Aspire teams that will practice at that location.
You are HIGHLY encouraged to attend all tryouts for your team! The more our coaching staff sees you, the better we are able to place you on the optimum team for your skill level.
During this registration process, you will submit your information (athlete and parent), choose your registration options, and select your payment method - you must register and pay online (if this is not possible, please contact Danyel del Rosario). Please keep a record of your login details as you will need to access the website throughout the season. Only create one account per family, in the name of a responsible adult; you'll be given the opportunity to register additional player athletes after completing the first one.
