Thank you to all Upward athletes, coaches, referees, and families for making this past Upward Basketball/Cheer Season such a huge success!! We welcomed over 320 children in the league this year - basketball teams are divided formed based on grade and gender; there are 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6 grade divisions. 1-2 grade plays on an 8' goal using a 27.5" ball; 3-4 grade play on 9' goal with a 28.5" ball; and 5-6 play on 10' goal and the 28.5" ball using full middle school basketball rules. We follow the Upward 360 Progression for most all game rules.
Thank you to all our families who participated in our annual Rice Bowl Ministry "give back" raising funds for Rice Bowls, a ministry feeding orphan children in 20 developing countries world-wide. This year we raised $6300! That translates into 18,900 meals next year for these children provided by our Upward athletes!!
