About Upward

Upward Basketball and Cheerleading is a community sports league -- specifically designed for children in kindergarten through 8th grade -- that promotes character and self-esteem. 

Established in 1995, Upward Sports is the world’s largest Christian youth sports provider. Today, approximately half a million players at more than 2,000 churches in 47 states participate in camps, clinics, and leagues through Upward Sports’ Recreation Division.

Season Details


Weeknight practices begin on December 9th for 1st - 4th grade players and all cheerleaders (one night per week). Kindergarten players will begin in January and practice and play on subsequent Saturdays at SRC. Specific team practice nights and locations have not been determined and will depend upon coach preferences.



All games are played on Saturdays. The 5th-6th grade divisions may practice and will play at a location other than SRC.
