All classes are a part of First Friends  Sports & Recreation Ministry. The  Sports and Recreation Ministry at First Friends (FFC) is rooted in our belief that all areas of life are sacred and everything we do must be under the Lordship of Christ (Col 3:17-23). We believe God is delighted when we pray but also when we play. He has created us with abilities and desires to play and compete and thus we “worship” Him in our activity (Romans 12:1). The  Sports and Rec Ministry of FFC gives the whole family opportunities for health, fitness, friendship, fun, competition, venue for outreach, and spiritual development in an inviting, Christ-centered atmosphere. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23

Participants in Girls Cheerleading will receive instruction on motions and jumps along with learning sideline cheers.  No prior cheer experience is required.  It does not matter what school district your child attends.  There are no OHSAA regulations for girls regarding cheerleading.  Girls Cheerleading Squads will cheer for First Friends Youth Sports teams on Saturdays during the fall season.  Squads will be determined by grade.  Click on the tab “Important Information” to view more details.
