 Because of COVID-19, we have decided to make some changes to help with social distancing and less crowded hallways. Some of these changes are as follows:

  • Game days will look different with only one game going on at a time, extra times between games, etc. Watch for more details soon.
  • As of now, the 5th & 6th grade games will be played on Friday nights.
  • Basketball will start at 1st grade. To make space and time, we will not offer teams for K5 players except for those wanting to cheer.
  • On practice nights, we may ask parents of older players, to drop off the kids or wait in their cars.
What is Upward Sports?
Upward Basketball is designed to build athletic skills, character, confidence, and spirit. Whether you are searching for a league, camp, or clinic, Upward Basketball programs are committed to developing the TOTAL athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.
Family Friendly Schedule
Family time is important; our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading has a schedule that reflects this with a one hour practice and one hour game a week.
Trained Refs & Coaches Who Put Your Child First
Our coaches' main goal is to teach the sport along with life lessons by positively encouraging your child.
Equal Playing
During games, your coaches will use our special substitution system that makes sure you and all your friends get equal playing time. 
Competitive Game Format for Older Players  
They follow a more traditional middle school format and game play. 
Cool Stuff
You will be looking like a pro in your uniform, and each week you'll receive stars for an awesome game played. At the end of the year, each player/cheerleader will receive an award for a tremendous season.
