Open Field Soccer

Soccer pickup games will be played at First Friends Church from 10am to 12 noon on some Saturday mornings this summer.  The first date will be this coming Saturday July 1 and each Saturday after that thru July 22.  In August there will be two Saturdays, Aug 5 and 12.    Please invite friends.  Bring whoever would enjoy playing.  There are no age restrictions. 

There will not be soccer on Tuesday nights this summer.  There was an earlier email that went out indicating that we would be playing on Tuesdays, beginning June 27, that has been cancelled. 

Hope to see you on Saturday morning at 10am!

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23

The Bible tells us that we are supposed to work at ALL we do with ALL of our hearts as if working for the Lord. At First Friends Church, we believe this truth can be applied to athletics as well. Just as with any gift or ability that God has given us, we should seek to use sports like soccer to glorify Him!

3 Values of All-Out Sports

All-Out Sports takes its value of Athletic Excellence seriously! We seek to teach our players the game of soccer in an age appropriate, healthy and encouraging environment.

All-Out Sports believes that there is such a thing as “healthy competition.” When we strive to make each other better by giving 100% on the field, challenging our opponents to do the same, everyone wins!

All-Out Sports recognizes that while we may have a few hours a week to train your students, parents and guardians have invaluable time away from the field to help their young players grow in the sport. We help to equip you to be a great coach at home!

Please note that both the U10 and U12/U15 practices will start at 6:00pm (Parent letter had previously listed 5:45pm).  We will maintain this start time, which we believe will be a little easier on parents and work schedules, until we get to a later point in the season when the sun starts to set earlier. At that time we will switch to a 5:30pm start time (please note that this will be announced via the website and at practice).
