Youth Soccer League
Kindergarten through 8th Grade
MCC is very excited to announce the return of our Upward Soccer youth program for the Fall of 2023!
What is Upward Soccer?
Upward Soccer is one of the youth league sports organized and coordinated through the national Upward Sports program. Upward Sports is a national nonprofit organization with the mission of promoting the discovery of Jesus through sports. Upward Sports partners with churches to help them develop youth leagues and bring youth sports ministry to communities.
MCC first offered Upward Soccer in 2019 for kindergarten through 4th grade. In 2021, we expanded the program to youth kindergarten through 8th grade. The program has been incredibly popular and successful! This unique sports experience develops young athletes mentally, athletically, socially, and spiritually through devotionals at each practice and game. Upward Soccer focuses on skills training, character development, drills, and gameplay – and it’s a lot of fun!
Who is Eligible to Participate?
All children who will be in kindergarten through 8th grade in Fall of 2023 are welcome and encouraged to join! No prior experience at MCC is needed – everyone is welcome even if they do not attend MCC.
When Does The Program Run?
The 2023 MCC Upward Soccer season will run from August 21st through October 23rd, 2023. Practices are held on either Monday or Thursday nights from 5:45pm – 7:00pm (you choose), and games will be held on Saturday mornings. Registration is now open, with early bird registration rate if you register by May 31st (see fees below). All practices and games will be held at the MCC Athletic Field at the Elverson Campus, 4221 Main Street, Elverson, PA.

How Do I Register My Child(ren)?
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. The cost of the program is $75.00 per student if you register by May 31st, or $85.00 per student after May 31st. Registration closes on July 25th – no registrations will be accepted after that date. Uniforms will be on-site to try on so we can order the perfect size.
Your child will need to attend one of the two evaluation days – July 15th or July 29th from 9:00am-11:00am. This will enable us to build fair teams throughout the league.
Do you have cleats that no longer fit your child that you would be interested in donating or participating in our cleat exchange program? We will have a table set up on evaluation days for this.
Take advantage of the early registration discount and register now!
