Upwards Basketball is a fun, competitive, and high-quality youth sports experience. We focus on the full development of each of our players and cheerleaders. Along with instructing and coaching basketball skills, we take time to teach positive life skills and to teach about the love of Jesus Christ for everyone.
Participation does not dominate a family's time, as we have 1-hour practices and 1-hour games each week during an 8-week season. Playing time for K–4th grade is equally divided: everybody plays and there are modified rules to ensure learning and fun come along with the competition. 5th grade and older is more like traditional school competition. Spectator behavior is limited to positive interaction and encouragement. It is fun for everyone!
In December during the orientation meeting there is an evaluation session, to allow for fair teams to be made. Uniform sizes will also be determined at the evaluation session.
Our league is open to boys and girls, ages K5–12th grade. Registration normally begins in August, practices begin in December, and games begin in January and run for 8 weeks. Cost is $70.00 for the first player in a family; additional siblings are $56.00 per person. Partial scholarships are available through New Promise Church. Cost includes a game jersey or cheerleader uniform.
