Are you looking for a sports league where your child can participate in a wholesome environment?

Upward® Basketball & Cheerleading are two wonderful programs where every child is a winner. Upward® is also a great place for your child to develop his or her character and self-esteem.

Unlike traditional sports programs, Upward® is structured so that children participate in practices and game play without league standings. Every child is allowed equal playing time and equal opportunity for involvement. Characteristics such as sportsmanship, kindness and character are valued as winning qualities.

The Upward® Cheerleader Program is set upon a wholesome foundation as well. In Upward® Cheerleadering, the squads do not engage in the use of cheers that include negative language, and the squads cheer for both participating teams.

Upward® Basketball & Cheerleading is a place where every child is a winner. It is about developing the winner in every child. In fact, Upward® is about the most important game of all–life! Involve your child today.

Game & Practice Locations:

Practices and games are currently held at Southern Middle School Gym.
Practices are 1 hour each week and games are on Saturdays.

The Expectation of God-Moments

We believe that God is at work all around us.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

The Life of Integrity

We believe that how we live is more important than what we say.

Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

The Discipline of Excellence

We believe in serving that exceeds expectations.

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

The Priority of Children

We believe that Every Child Is A Winner.

Matthew 18:14
In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.
