UPWARD SOCCEr (click here)


Upward Soccer is a Christ centered program that aims to enable players to build their skills, speed, strength, and stamina. Our recreation league and camp will introduce young athletes to the game at an early age and help build the foundation to excel at the next level.
Our vision is to see Upward players develop mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially, into total athletes who excel both on and off the field.

Program Description:
The league is coed for ages Pre – Kindergarten 4 through the 8th grade.
(Pre – K4 child must turn 5 by Nov 4, 2019 to participate)
Age divisions will be determined based upon the registration enrollment

The league will consist of 7 games, to be played on Saturdays. First game is Saturday Sept. 21, 2019

The league will consist of one practice during the week with the first practices being the week of
Sept 9-12 and one additional practice on Saturday Sept 14 for all ages.
Times and days of practice will be determined based upon registration numbers.

Evaluations/ Assessments: August 24, 2019
All participants must attend evaluation / assessment.
Actual time for your age level will be determined at a later date
The evaluation is designed to provide a means in which teams can be drafted as equally as possible.
Upward programs promote the idea of trying to balance the teams the best we can in an attempt to not only persuade teams from coming in as select teams, but to be able to provide the best team match up as possible and to have a great playing experience.

*Registration begins June 1, 2019. You may pay by credit card online or by check or cash on evaluation day.
*Cost per player $90.00 for early registration from June 1 – Aug 1, 2019. Includes the jersey and shorts
*After Aug 1 registration will be $100.00
*You may request one friend to play with, but both registrations will need to request each other in order to honor the request to play on same team.

At Fellowship of Wildwood, we believe it is important to connect with the next generation and give them a positive environment for them to learn, stay active, and have fun. Through our Upward Sports programs, kids can do just that.

Upward Soccer and Upward Basketball with Cheerleading provides a fun environment, built around healthy competition, while creating a positive experience. Our focus will be on teaching the skill set for each of those sports, along with teaching the children important values for life, and the great news that Jesus loves each and every one of them.

Upward Soccer league is played from August through November with the online sign up registration beginning June 1 – August 1, 2019.

Upward Basketball, along with Upward Cheerleading, is played from December through March with the online sign up registration beginning September 1 – November 1, 2019.

As host of the league, Fellowship of Wildwood will provide a first class organized league that your entire family will enjoy. It will start with an evaluation of every player to help create the best chance of having balanced teams and will conclude with a fun and exciting Award Ceremony at the end of the season. Every participant will feel like a pro when they receive a quality uniform, have their names announced at the start of every game, and a guarantee of equal play time every game.
