UPWARD Flag Football

Upward web photo 2014Upward Football is for boys in first through fourth grade.  This year we have six teams of 1st and 2nd graders – – and eight of 3rd and 4th graders!  The games began on Saturday afternoon, September 6th, and go on for seven Saturdays in a row!!  The boys – – who are coached by a volunteer staff of dads – – learn how to play football—- about playing with good sportsmanship—- and they have times with their coach learning about how God wants them to grow as young men.

Upward is a world-wide Christian sports league for children, providing a fun kids sports experience based on healthy competition.  To learn more about Upward Sports, visit www.upward.org.  DEFC offers Upward Flag Football for boys in 1st – 4th grades during the months of August through October.
