{Character} Goals with Upward Soccer

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for
which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:14

This is the 2nd year our church has offered a soccer camp using Upward Sports curriculum. We had 76 players - twice as many as last year - so much fun! Paige was allowed to play this year - despite being only 4 years old. She did great - running after the ball with great determination.

Upward Sports offers some great advantages for learning to become a team player. Upward is a fun, reliable, passionate and encouraging sports experience for boys and girls, in K5 through sixth grade. Upward provides first class, organized and detailed sports programming in soccer. Unique aspects of Upward include an evaluation system that promotes equal and competitive teams as well as a substitution system which allows for equal playing time for all participants. Through Upward, children are exposed to quality coaching and sport development. Upward emphasizes character and integrity instead of a “win at all costs” mentality associated with today’s sports world.

Graeme really enjoyed playing this year

Blaire was very focused for {most of} the week

Paige was super excited to kick the ball in the goal
