Upward Basketball and Upward Cheerleading offers a break from the norm. The primary focus of Upward is to develop the Winner in EVERY child, not just a few. By keeping this goal in mind, we are able to build a league that promotes salvation, character, and self-esteem in all who participate through:                           

  • Sportsmanship and competitiveness in proper perspective by not maintaining league standings in any division.
  • Maximizing the family schedule by having only one hour of practice and one game each week.
  •  Equipping coaches and referees to minister by providing extensive    teaching tools and resources.
  •  Providing opportunities to promote other church ministries to all  participants and their families.
  •  Allowing the coach to focus on ministering to children and their families, instead of game strategy, by having a set substitution system where all players are allowed equal playing time and equal opportunity for improvement.
  • Encouraging each player with a game day award following every game.
  • Maximizing ministry opportunities by exposing players to Scripture-based devotions during each practice and spectators to halftime testimonies each game day.
