-- Upward Flag Football League registration --

Once again, Oakland Church is sponsoring an Upward Flag Football League for boys and girls in Kindergarten through 6th grades. Our coaches provide a supportive environment within which Upward Sports athletes learn game rules, discover and refine their athletic skills, and develop sportsmanship in a Christian-based sports program. Players are rotated through both offensive and defensive positions to gain a keen understanding of the full dimensions of football.  

Players will be assigned to teams and contacted by coaches that weekend, and practices begin the week of August 28. Games will begin on September 9 and run through October 28. The registration fee covers the cost of double-sided jersey and closing party and gifts. Parents may also purchase Upward shorts or use personal shorts. Cleats (non-metal) are recommended.

Registration is now open:

     Early registration is $65 through August 17

     Beginning August 18, registration is $70.

     Evaluations and in-person registration will be held at Oakland Church on Saturday, August 12, between 9:00-11:00 am

     Deadline for registration is August 25.

Registration brochure may be downloaded from the Upward web site ( or picked up from the Oakland Church office (weekday afternoons), 70 Oakland Terrace, Charles Town, WV 25414.
