Upward Sports


We are currently in our 16th 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 have separate boys and girls leagues in 3 divisions: 1st-2nd grade, 3rd-4th grade, and 5th-6th grade.  Upward Basketball Camp is 1 week each June for grades 3-8, and SLBC Basketball Academy is September-October for athletes in grades 5-8.  Master Coach Doug Lechtenberger, who recently retired from 20+ years coaching Fort Bend Dulles Varsity Girls basketball.  Coach Doug and his wife, Coach Brenda, lead the camps and academy.
