Upward Soccer 2021

Upward Soccer Niles had a great 2021 season. We want to say "thank you" to all of the volunteers, coaches, and referees that made this season a success! This league can't happen without great people who love Jesus and want to share that with others through soccer. We're already looking forward to the 2022 season, so stayed tuned and check back in May for registration details.

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. 


Our Upward office hours are Monday through Thursday 9AM-12PM.
