Upward Sports Basketball teaches children not only the fundamentals of the game but also what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Basketball is offered for both boys and girls, kindergarten through 6th grade. Kindergarten is coed, while older grades are split by gender. For first grade and up, kids will meet once a week for a one-hour practice and games are one hour on Saturday, starting in January and running through February. Practice and game times vary. 

For kindergarten players, please see note below about practice and game day schedule.

The cost is $100/player per season. Uniforms and awards are included in the cost.

Celebration Night

Monday, Feb. 25, 2019

Our celebration night will be held Monday night, February 25th in our sanctuary (on the west end of the building).  Because of limited capacity in our sanctuary, we will have two sessions:

  • Session 1, 5:30 – 6:30 pm: Kindergarten through 3rd grades.

  • Session 2, 7:00 – 8:00 pm: 4th through 6th grades.

Our celebration night is a blast! Teams will have assigned rows and families will be able to sit in the open seating behind all teams. This will be teams’ last time together this season. After the celebration, each Upward player will receive their season-ending gift.
