upward basketball and cheer 

Our Upward Basketball and cheer League is for all families seeking a league that develops the total athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. Our program is tailored to meet athletes where they are in their athletic journey, allowing them to reach their full potential, on and off the court. Your child will grow in character, confidence, faith, and sportsmanship as they participate in Upward.

We strive to to promote and teach good sportsmanship and teamwork by:
  • Providing an evaluation system that promotes equal and competitive teams ( Evaluations September 4th and 5th)
  • Establishing a one-hour practice and game each week with a devotion ( practices will be on Tuesday and Thursday nights)
  • Implementing a substitution system for each team that allows every child equal playing time

2020 Registration and evaluation dates:

  • Registration opens August 9th
  • Evaluation September 4th-5th
    • 1 st game September 26th
