PLAY WITH PURPOSE:

To Play With Purpose means you make smart decisions, improve in your physical development, discover your life's purpose, and put others needs before your own.

It's more than just the game. It's every practice, every drill, every pivot, every pass and shot. Become more than just an athlete.

The driving purpose behind Upward Sports is a desire to help young athletes PLAY WITH PURPOSE.

 

The 360 Progression is the development of the total athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially, applied intentionally through all Upward Sports programming.

 

Experienced coaches guide players through three stages of athletic growth: game discovery, skill development, and peak performance - while using the teachings of Christ to foster positive sportsmanship and character.

   

 

THE 360 COACH:

The coaches that serve in our Upward Soccer League have the important responsibility of developing the whole athlete in their personal growth mentally, athletically, spiritually and socially. This unique approach is known as the 360 Progression and is based on Luke 2:52 – “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.”

 Below are the four foundations of the 360 Progression:

 MENTALLY – MAKING WISE DECISIONS

By learning the rules of the game, young athletes are able to make wise decisions on the field. A 360 Coach knows how to teach the game in a way that young athletes can understand.

 ATHLETICALLY – IMPROVING PHYSICAL ABILITY

One of the main reasons parents register their young athlete to play is to improve their physical ability. A 360 Coach knows how to build athletic foundations through drills that enhance skill development.

 MANUAL SPIRITUALLY – EMBRACING LIFE’S PURPOSE

The mission of Upward Sports is to promote the discovery of Jesus through sports. This mission is carried out by the 360 Coach, as they introduce life’s true purpose through intentional character lessons throughout the season.

 SOCIALLY – FOSTERING HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

An important part of growing as an athlete is connecting with teammates. As they enjoy time with others, they are building healthy relationships. A 360 Coach should be a catalyst in encouraging this connection because it builds a socially healthy team.

 

VOLUNTEER:

Teenagers and adults are encouraged to volunteer to coach and/or referee.  Training is given to teach volunteers what is expected during the season.
