Upward Soccer

Family Life Center

Upward is a uniquely designed total sports experience that adapts and expands as players grow in their personal athletic journeys. The Upward program develops total athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially – producing players who excel both on and off the field.

Through Upward we pride ourselves on creating a semi competitive environment for play that is developmentally appropriate, challenging, and conducive to learning. Through the program, coaches teach the skills and concepts of the game, but most importantly, promote the discovery of Jesus. Our bible curriculum includes several memory verses per season that teach us important Biblical virtues.

Our Upward Soccer program (pre-Kindergarten – 4th grade) is designed to introduce young athletes to the game at an early age and help build the foundation to excel at the next level. Our vision is to see Upward Soccer players develop mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially, into total athletes who excel both on and off the field. 

Teams are split into developmentally appropriate age groupings and teams are made as equally as possible based on ages, accommodations, and our league evaluations. We are very intentional about this process, we want every child to be appropriately challenged, feel as if they are in a safe place to learn and grow, and be given the opportunity to be as successful as possible. 

Teams are coached by volunteer parents, supported and guided by Recreation Ministry staff. If you are interested in volunteering to coach your child’s team, read our information on coaching

Pre-K/ Kindergarden will be played indoors. This will be a 30/30 format where each Saturday the teams will have a 30-minute practice, followed by a 30 minute game. 

1st through 4th grade will be played outdoors. This will be a traditional format where practice will be held during the week and games will be held on Saturday mornings.
