After School Volleyball Tournament
Student members of our school's Fuel Up to Play 60 team organized an after school round robin volleyball tournament. We had 12 teams of eight players and over 15 teachers volunteered their time to chaperone. This event was right after school for three hours and students were guaranteed to play eight games. It was a great event that provided some competition with physical activity. The winning two teams were able to play at our all-school assembly.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

This was our second annual tournament. Last year, we had eight teams and this year we increased it to 12 teams. We will continue to support and give our students opportunities to be active movers outside of school.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

It is always challenging finding chaperones and workers for our events. The students in our group like to play as well, so we need to secure volunteers that aren't associated with FUTP 60 in order to have enough help.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students were the real leaders of this event. The adults helped them with difficult questions to broaden their minds and work around barriers.
