First To The Finish, Non Stop Volleyball, IESA Partner Again

First To The Finish, Nonstop Volleyball and the Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) continue to grow their partnership to promote sports participation for the nearly 140,000 seventh and eighth grade students in IESA's 732 member schools.

For the second straight year, First To The Finish and Nonstop Volleyball, a division of First To The Finish, Inc., will be involved with IESA cross-country, track and field and the new four-class girls volleyball state series. Representatives of the companies are on site at the state final events. They provide track and field shoes, gear and equipment and volleyball shoes, event gear, balls and other equipment to competitors, coaches and fans at the state final. They also will answer questions and display team and individual product line.

For many years, First To The Finish has been a major contributor to IESA track and field. The company has been providing much of the equipment used in conducting the annual Class A and Class AA State Final Track and Field Meets. That equipment is then sold at discounted prices to IESA member schools. In addition, First To The Finish staff has been on site at the two state final track and field meets to answer questions and display its wide variety of shoes, uniforms and other items from its team and individual product line.

"First To The Finish, an Illinois company headquartered in Carlinville, is a major marketer of equipment and athletic gear throughout the United States," said IESA Executive Director Steve Endsley. "The material provided by the company at our track and field meets has allowed us to conduct showcase events with equipment that is state of the art. The First To The Finish and Nonstop Volleyball staff has been very helpful with a hands on approach to our students, their families and coaches at the state finals. We are delighted with our relationship. I encourage personnel at our member schools to take advantage of the services that First To The Finish and Nonstop Volleyball can provide."
