In 2018, we completed our 16th basketball/cheer season of partnering with Upward Sports to provide a superior basketball/cheer league with the focus of sharing the love of Christ. Registration begins each September. Practices start in December and league play runs December-February each year. There is 1 practice per week for one hour (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday) and a one hour game on Saturdays/Sundays. We follow the Upward 360 Progression and have separate boys and girls leagues in 3 divisions: 1st-2nd grade, 3rd-4th grade, and 5th-6th grade.
Upward Basketball Camp registration is OPEN NOW for athletes who are entering grades 3-8 ('18-'19 school year) June 25-28, 2018 .
