General Information

The First Friends Sports (FFS) Winter Co-Ed Volleyball League is for men and women age 18 and over. It is intended to provide fun competition and fellowship in a warm and friendly environment. There will be a short devotional time where we share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ every week.  This league will have three divisions in Winter 2024, Red, White, and Blue.

 

This Page is for the RED  Registrations only. Players who wish to sign up for the White or Blue league or who are new to the league should register on the WHITE/BLUE page. Players of advanced skill who have played in the league before must contact Tim Zornes at tzornes@firstfriends.org for permission to register in this division.  Please note that the RED league will not take registrations exclusively on a first come basis. Player registration must first be approved to meet the skill floor of the Red league and then on a first come basis.

In the event your registration is not approved you can register for the White or Blue League should they still have room. Registrations will be checked Monday – Thursday mornings until leagues are full.

 

Blue—a recreational league for adults of all skill levels who are looking to have fun or learn/teach the game with moderate, but challenging competition.

Red and White—two competitive divisions for different skill levels with a larger focus on rigorous skill work and intense competition while still fostering Christ-honoring sportsmanship. Please note that there is a minimum skill floor for both divisions, with White Division reserved for veteran players of intermediate skill and Red Division for veteran players with the highest experience and skill who have played in the league previously.

 

First Friends Sports reserves the right to a final decision on player placement to maintain fun and fair competition for all leagues.
