Upward is designed for children to learn the game of soccer so all children, whether they have played before or not, are encouraged to join. Children are placed on teams to keep them balanced so one team does not have all experienced players or all novice players.

When is the Upward Soccer season?

Registration for soccer usually opens in late July. Evaluations occur about two weeks before practices begin in August and the season ends in late October. Each season concludes with an Awards Celebration where every child receives an award for their hard work. Specific Upward dates change from season to season, but parents may contact the church office for specific days.
