Special Request Policy:
The First Friends Sports Ministry 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 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
3) Carpool and Transportation
That said, the First Friends Sports Ministry 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
