Be Part of the Team | Upward Flag Football & Cheerleading


While fans are cheering for their favorite football teams you can be a part of the game in a way that can change the lives of entire families.

Boys and girls in K-6th grades are being invited from all around our area to participate in Upward Flag Football at Severns Valley. Games begin on September 19 with practices beginning August 30.

By serving in one of these ways, you can make a difference in the lives of families:

Football or Cheerleader Coach
Coaches serve one game each week for seven Saturdays and a one-hour practice each week. There’s a brief devotion for you to share at practice each week that presents God’s love. As a coach you’ll be a Christ-like example to both children and their families. First time coaching? We’ll have instructions for you that will allow you to be a tremendously effective coach.

Giving your time to encourage players during the games will show God’s love to children and their families. All games are on Saturdays and we will schedule you to referee the games your schedule will allow. You’ll be instructed in the rules and procedures for being an excellent Flag Football referee.

Take part in making a difference in lives through your involvement as a scorekeeper in this year’s Upward Flag Football season. Games take place over the course of seven Saturdays. We’ll educate you on the scoring system and how the equipment works.

Concession Stand Attendant
Welcoming and friendly attendants take inventory of snacks and drinks, make them available for purchase under our concessions tent, and sell concession items to families and fans.

Halftime Devotion
Flag football volunteers are encouraged to share a short 3-4 minute devotion with the crowd during halftime of every game.

Coach/Referee Training: There will be a short training session on Saturday, August 15 at 9:00 am in the Atrium. Refreshments provided.

For more information about how you can be involved in this year’s Upward Flag Football and Cheerleading season come to the kiosk outside the worship center following Sunday services or contact our Upward Associate Director Chris Dunham (
