SunRise United Methodist Church in O’Fallon will host its fifth annual spring Upward Soccer League for kindergarten through sixth grade boys and girls.
Players are graded through five different evaluation drills, and the information is inputted into a computer system to ensure evenly skilled players.
Kindergarten through third grade teams play a four on four game on a small field with no goalie. This ensures players will get more interaction with the ball. Each team also has a coach on the field during the game.
Fourth through sixth grade teams play seven on seven with a goalie on two combined small fields. In the middle of practice, a team huddle session is held to discuss a word of the day and how this word relates to the their lives.
Soccer games are held on Saturdays, beginning on March 28 for eight weeks. Registration begins on Feb. 1 and continues through March 8.
Evaluations will be held on Saturday, March 7 and Sunday, March 8. Youth must attend one evaluation.
