We offer Basketball and Cheerleading to children 4 years old through eighth grade. Our Upward Sports season occurs annually from November-  February. With Upward, EVERY CHILD PLAYS, EVERY CHILD LEARNS, AND EVERY CHILD IS A WINNER.

Upward Basketball is a sports ministry specifically designed for kindergarten through eighth grade boys Upward Logo and girls that promotes children who are developing:

  • a personal relationship with the one true God through Jesus, His Son (John 3:16, John 14:6, Romans 10:9,10)
  • personal character with respect, honor, and integrity
  • self-esteem in every child;a sense of personal value from a biblical world view
  • a knowledge of the fundamentals of basketball
  • an understanding and enjoyment of the sport
  • sportsmanship and a respect for authority in any situation, on and off the court

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

  • Create a fun and competitive sports environment
  • Teach sport fundamentals
  • Teach life lessons from the Bible during practice huddles
  • Recruit coaches who are focused on having fun, developing skills and building character

Our Commitment is to share the love of Jesus Christ with each player, coach, referee, volunteer, and family member that participates in our Upward Sports Ministry.
