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.
