UPPER 90 FC 2004 Ladies training with the youth from Youth Challenge
On Friday, October 19, 2018, the UPPER 90 FC 2004 Ladies and Coach T assisted and participated in a Youth Challenge soccer training session. They worked on fitness, foot skills, and then got in a scrimmage game. Everyone had a great time and are eager to do it again.

At UPPER 90 FC we look for youth with a “passion for the game, players with the inner drive to reach for their goals, and players with exceptional character and sportsmanship both on and off the soccer field.” With these projects we are working to develop the “off the soccer field” aspect of our youth.
