Upward Basketball and Cheerleading

Upward is a sports ministry specifically designed for kindergarten through 8th grade boys and girls that promotes Christian values, character, and self-esteem in every child. Upward Basketball and Cheerleading is designed to reveal the winner in every child

Every child plays. Every child learns. Every child IS a Winner!

About Upward

We play for about 8 weeks in the January through March timeframe each season. Each team plays one game per week; all games are on Saturday in the Church gym. Teams practice weeknights; practices help each participant to learn teamwork and basic basketball skills, as well as sharing basic Christian beliefs and Bible verses.
