What is Upward Basketball & Cheer?
Upward Basketball & Cheer is a dynamic sports program for kids Pre-K - 6th grade. Upward focuses on excellence in teaching the fundamentals of basketball & cheerleading. Our coaches, along with the many other volunteers, provide a fantastic environment for kids to fall in love with sports, fitness, teamwork, & sportsmanship. Upward focuses on encouragement, not politics - fair competition, not team-stacking - team work, not ball-hogging - fun, not stress - excellence, not mediocrity. The very best thing about Upward is its focus on Jesus Christ. Players & cheerleaders are surrounded by loving coaches, referees, & commissioners who carefully share the hope of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. These adults share this good news through their actions, attitudes & words. We believe that kids unlock endless potential when they give their lives to the Infinite Provider. Our goal is to help them have fun as they do so.
