PLAY WITH PURPOSE

WHAT IS UPWARD SOCCER?


We believe youth sports can be played in a fun environment where children learn the game, develop their skills, experience teamwork, and learn life principles that will apply both on and off the field.


OUR VISION


OUR VISION IS TO SEE UPWARD SOCCER PLAYERS DEVELOP MENTALLY,  ATHLETICALLY, SPIRITUALLY, AND SOCIALLY INTO TOTAL ATHLETES WHO EXCEL BOTH ON AND OFF THE FIELD.

WHAT TO EXPECT?


FOCUS ON FUN

Our youth soccer leagues emphasize total player development, the building of team dynamics, and healthy competition. Specially designed game rules ensure that individual players get more touches with the ball and more opportunities to learn, grow, and succeed on and off the field.

DEVELOP SKILLS

Upward Soccer is designed for young athletes to discover their passion for the sport as well as improve their game through healthy competition. Each week players will participate in one hour long practice to develop their skills and one hour long game to give them a chance for healthy competition. 

TEACHING LIFE PRINCIPLES

Upward Soccer strives to develop youth mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. We don't want to simply teach players about soccer, but to equip them with team building and interpersonal skills that will help them develop beyond the soccer field.
