We will have around 500 players registered and are unable to guarantee that
your request to be on a certain coach’s team or to be placed with a friend will be
fulfilled. This could and does affect the equal make up of talent on teams based
on the evaluations as well as presents a considerable logistical challenge.
6th – 9th Grade League:
Last Spring we partnered with Fortified Hills for the 6th-9th grade league and we
had a great experience with them. We will be partnering with them again this
spring for this age group so please be aware that some of the games will be played at
their facility. Since Fortified Hills begins their season after ours this may also mean
that the 6-9th grade league will begin and end slightly later.
We are always in need of volunteers for: Coaching, Refereeing, Organizing, Field
maintenance, helping keep the facility clean, and anything else that comes up along
the way. So if you are interested in lending your gifts to this ministry or know of
someone who would be interested, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look
forward to meeting each of you and I thank you for being a part of Upward Soccer
