Upward Soccer


Fall 2014 Season Information

Our desire is to provide the BEST SPORTS EXPERIENCE for every child.

To do that we:

  • Create a fun and competitive sports environment
  • Teach sport fundamentals
  • Teach life lessons from the Bible during practice huddles
  • Have coaches who are focused on having fun, developing skills and building character

What if I have questions throughout the season?

The best person to answer specific questions about your league is your child's coach. If he/she is unable to answer your question, ask the league director. 

Looking forward to a great season!

  • One-hour practices per week
  • Practice devotions that teach character
  • Teams learn Bible verses together

Green Star awards are given to every player participating in learning the Bible verse.

At each practice, your child's team will participate in a 5 to 7 minute devotion time. These devotions are age-appropriate for each division. This devotion time will promote salvation, character, and self-esteem in your child. At each practice, your child will receive a Scripture Magnet with the Bible verse to be learned for the next practice. Take time to familiarize yourself with the Scripture verses so you and your child can discuss the weekly Bible verses and themes.
