League information

Summit Church's Upward Soccer league is 4 vs. 4 (5yrs - 2nd grade) and 7 vs. 7 (3rd - 6th grade) soccer. We play on smaller fields and with fewer players than most leagues, because this gives each player more opportunities with the ball and teaches them the necessary skills in a much better way. Smaller teams allow coaches to give more individual attention to each player as well. 

The league consists of 4 divisions, K-5, 1st-2nd grade, 3rd-4th grade, and 5th-6th grade. Each division is mixed gender, and we make an effort to spread gender and skill level out evenly across each team. 

The league runs from August - October. Ages are 5 yrs (by end of year) through 6th grade. Teams practice once per week, and all games are played on Saturdays. Every game and every practice is hosted at Summit Fields, on the campus of Summit Church.

More than a League

Upward Soccer programs around the nation make an effort to present an excellent sports experience while promoting positive Christ-centered values. We are not simply running a sports program. We are making an effort to impact our community and our kids for Jesus.
