Upward Sports


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.
