We offer Upward Sports because we believe that all children need to know about the saving power of God’s Son, Jesus Christ. This program allows us to share the love of Jesus with the children of our community. Upward is more than just another basketball league. It is a program that promotes character and self-esteem  in your child by helping them improve their basketball skills and build a relationship with Jesus. We make every effort to create equal teams and  allowing every child equal playing time.

Upward is more that a game. Your child will have fun learning or improving their sport specific skills through Upward. Participating in this league will give your child a chance to experience good sportsmanship on and off the court. While playing or cheering for Upward Basketball, your child will also receive a special recognition  star after every game and have the opportunity to develop new friendships.
