We offer Basketball and Cheerleading to children Kindergarten through eighth grade. Our Upward Sports season occurs annually from October-February. With Upward, EVERY CHILD PLAYS, EVERY CHILD LEARNS, AND EVERY CHILD IS A WINNER.

Our desire is to provide a positive sports experience for every child! To do that we:
