Basketball and Cheerleading

For kids 1st-6th grade

Upward promotes character and self-esteem through sports. Athletes discover and refine their skills while cultivating a passion for the sport. Players get equal playing time, and yes, we keep score, but winning is just a bonus. Cheerleaders cheer for all players.

We evaluate each basketball player and build teams in a way to ensure the best experience possible.

We’re monitoring the Covid situation and may adjust based on CDC and local recommendations. Adjustments may include changing practice/game schedules, creating practice pods and/or limiting spectators due to capacity constraints. 

It’s all about character and teamwork.

Developing next-generation leaders
