What Upward Soccer Offers:
Your child will learn the fundamentals of soccer. Upward Soccer offers a unique drafting system that creates balanced teams, and a unique substitution system for equal playing time for each player. Practices are limited to one hour per week for 13 weeks. Life lessons are shared at each practice. Games are limited to one per week for 8 weeks. We strive for a positive atmosphere at practices and games!

During your one hour practice each week, your coach will spend time teaching your team the FUNdamentals of soccer. Through the skills and drills you work on at practice, you and your new friends will grow as a team. And your entire team will look and feel like pros once you have your Upward uniforms. You should receive all of your Upward® items including uniform, car magnet, and other gear at your first practice. 

Game days normally occur on Saturdays and each exciting game should last an hour. Come dressed to play in your uniform and ready to compete against other children your age. Right after the game, let your fans keep cheering you on as your coach recognizes you with one of 5 stars! 
On top of all this, because you are an Upward® player, you will be able to log onto http://www.upward.org/ This website has been specifically designed for all Upward® players to learn even more about their sport, play interactive games and more.
