Upward Connect Soccer and Upward Connect Flag Football

In light of COVID-19 we have decided to cancel our traditional league model for Flag Football and Cheer for the Fall of 2020. With the previous cancelation of our Spring Upward Soccer League, we decided to go in a new direction for the Fall of 2020 that reaches out to each sport we offer through Geyer Sports.


We are excited to offer Upward Connect Soccer and Upward Connect Flag Football. Upward Connect is designed as camp/clinic style 2 hour session with a focus on skill development and a re-introduction to sports with your families safety in mind. Sessions are for those in Kindergarten-6th grade (2020/21 school year). Each session will pair up your child with players in similar age groups. Coaches will run players through different skills, drills, and stations to develop their game. All state and local guidelines on Youth Sports will be followed.




Upward Connect Soccer

Each Upward Connect Soccer session will put your child with players in similar age groups (coed). Coaches will run players through different skills, drills, and stations to develop their game. Soccer players may bring their own balls (size 3 for K-2nd Grade and size 4 for 3rd-6th grade), but it isn’t required. Shin guards and a water bottle are required and cleats are recommended but not required.

Upward Sports at Geyer Springs

Promoting the Discovery of Jesus Through Sports


Upward Sports is an evangelistic sports ministry specifically designed for K5 through 6th grade boys and girls that promotes salvation, character, and self-esteem in every child and also the sports specific skills to play the game. Here at Geyer Springs, our goal is for students to be introduced to the Gospel and be trained in their specific sport. In this program, every child plays! Check out the Upward Sports website at www.upward.org.


We offer three sports leagues:


Upward Flag Football – Registration opens Summer 2021

Upward Cheerleading – Registration opens Summer 2021

Upward Soccer – Registration opens Winter 2020

UPWARD FLAG FOOTBALL AND CHEERLEADING

After much prayer and consideration we have decided to cancel our 2020 Upward Flag Football and Cheer Season. While this is not something we wanted to do it was in the best interest of our league and families to do so. Look for Upward Flag Football and Cheer to return in the Fall of 2021. We are excited to offer Upward Connect Soccer and Upward Connect Flag Football for your family this Fall!


UPWARD SOCCER

Upward Soccer is offered during the spring semester of each season beginning in early March with evaluations and ending in mid-May with our Upward Awards Celebration.


We offer leagues for boys and girls 4-years-old (by March 3) through 6th grade. The deadline for registration is March 3. Registration includes uniform shirt, shorts, and socks. Cleats are not provided, but are recommended.


Registration opens Winter 2020!
