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 per team than most leagues. Smaller teams allow coaches to give more individual attention to each player and allows players more opportunities with the ball.

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 for kids who are 5 (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.

Upward Soccer 2023

We want to say "thank you" to all of the volunteers, coaches, and referees that made last season a success! 

This league can't happen without great people who love Jesus and want to share that with others through soccer. 

Now, as we enter into our 2023 season, we are looking forward to another great year!
