Upward Soccer

Upward Sports provides a unique sports experience that develops young athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually and socially. It focuses on skills training, character development, drills and gameplay…and it’s also a lot of fun!

Every spring, CLA hosts Upward Soccer for kids age 5-grade 6 on our outdoor fields. We plan on having the same format as in previous seasons (Saturday practices and games). Please note:

  • Our younger athletes (age 5-grade 2) play 4v4; our older athletes (grades 3-6) play 7v7.
  • Players age 5-grade 2 will have practice at 9:00 AM, followed by a game at 10:00 AM. Players in grades 3-6 will have practice at 10:00 AM, followed by a game at 11:00 AM. Devotions are held at the end of each practice.

The early online registration discount of $14 will be offered through February 11. The deadline to register is February 19.
