Our Story

FaR Out was founded in 1997 by Joe and Roxane Steenhuysen during a period when there were limited opportunities for club volleyball in Michigan. FaR Out became the pillar of what AAU volleyball is now in West Michigan, as they were the first to bring athletes together from rivaling schools to combine their talents to put Michigan volleyball on the map. Today, at FaR Out we continue to build upon the original foundations of building relationships and training our athletes in a positive, competitive, and family-oriented environment. Our coaches, leadership staff, and athletes devote themselves to our mission at FaR Out to build trust, love our teammates, and to create a family bond throughout our program all of which have been vital to our continued success among our West Michigan peers.
