Our goal is the share the hope and love of Jesus Christ with families through Upward Basketball. We want to help children to grow mentally, socially, athletically, and most importantly, spiritually.
We place a high emphasis on building character, sportmanship, and leadership in each participant. We believe youth sports should be played in a fun environment where children can learn the game, develop their skills, experience teamwork, and learn principles that will apply both on and off the court.
Game Day Experience
Lots of Fun
Head Coach & Assistant Coaches
Impact the lives of children by using your gifts and talents to teach the fundamentals of the game as well as sportsmanship, teamwork, integrity, and respect for authority. Never coached before? Don't worry; Upward Sports will provide you with all the resources necessary to teach the sport, share life lessons, and coach your team. Time commitment: 1 hour practice and 1 hour game each week.
Do you have a passion for the game and working knowledge of the rules of the game? If so, use your gift to make an impact in the lives of the children as an Upward referee. Time commitment: 1 hour a week on Saturday (depending on how many games you referee).
Leading Game Day Devotions
Impact the lives of the children by sharing a devotion at half-time. Devotions are centered on one of the biblical virtues that the children are learning in practice. Devotions are already written out for you or you can choose to share your own. Time commitment: 10 minutes. Click here to sign up for devotions.
