Upward Basketball and Cheerleading

Upward Basketball and Cheerleading are programs designed to give children (both boys and girls) and their families a positive sports experience by partnering with local churches to build character, self-esteem, and salvation.  The season will incorporate practice, games, devotions, and a celebration event at the end of the season.  The emphasis is on skill development and spiritual growth.

Weekly Update 03-17-2014

It is hard to believe 8 weeks has passed so quickly! It was a great season and I’m glad to have been a part of it. If you are interested in next season, enter your email address above and I will make sure you receive an email the day registration opens.  I will have the timeline for next season here this week.  I hope you will be able to participate again next year.

Thank you to all of the kids for playing, to their coaches, and to everyone that helped make this season a success.  I am grateful for all of you! I hope that you will join us for our celebration this week.

CLOSING CELEBRATION: Our closing celebration is Thursday, March 20. Dana Tison will be our entertainer for the evening. We will begin at 6:30 and will keep our program right at an hour since it is a school night.  We’ll have lots of fun!
