Skills that will be taught include serving, serve reception, setting, passing, blocking, and transitioning. The adapted net height and the use of USVA certified Volley Lite volleyballs ensure personal success. Players will need to provide their own knee pads and First Friends All Out Sports League volleyball jerseys are required. The jerseys are included in the league fee.

Each team consists of a roster of 9 players and two coaches. There are 8 games with practices once a week. Immediately following the practices (starting the practice before the first game), we take time to share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ in our huddle time, which will last approximately 15-20 minutes. Players and coaches are also encouraged to memorize scripture verses weekly.

3 Values of All-Out Sports

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

POSITIVE COMPETITION
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 court, challenging our opponents to do the same, everyone wins!

PARENT PARTNERSHIP
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 court to help their young players grow in the sport. We help to equip you to be a great coach at home!

Special Request Policy:
The First Friends Sports Outreach staff is committed to making the Youth Volleyball program a quality league that seeks to accommodate the needs of those who choose to participate.  That is because each individual matters to our league, to our staff and to our church.  This is the reason that the All Out Sports program allows parents the opportunity to write in certain requests/preferences.  However, due to the large number of requests that we receive each season, it is impossible for our staff to fulfill every request.Here is how the requests are prioritized:
1) Health Issues/Special Situations
2) Family
3) Carpool and Transportation
4) Preferences
That said, the First Friends Sports Outreach staff also recognizes that, in a league of our size, mistakes will be made.  If this is the case (i.e. your child is in the wrong division, an imperative carpool link is not met), then we would be happy to discuss a solution.  This can be done by contacting the First Friends Sports office at 330-966-6868.  However, any other preference not met was the result of the above system of priorities and the rosters would be set as final.  Again, we do our best to accommodate as many requests as we can and regret any inconvenience.
