This year the Kindergarten and 1st graders will practice at Autumn Ridge Church. The 2nd through 5th graders will be practicing at Salem Road Covenant Church (right next to Autumn Ridge).
The teams will all be coed. They will be divided into three divisions. Kindergarten and 1st grade together, 2nd and 3rd grade together and 4th and 5th grade together. K-3rd grade will play 4v4 with no goalies. 4th and 5th grade will be playing on a larger field, 7v7 with goalies.

All of our coaches are volunteers, most of them parents. We do a background check on each coach. If you would be interested in coaching, please contact Ben Boldt at upward@autumnridgechurch.org.

Evaluations are a few drills we put each player through to help us evaluate their skill level. Their scores are never revealed to them and are only used to help us create evenly skilled teams. Every player MUST attend one evaluation. Evaluation dates can be seen above.
