Mission Statement: Upward is committed to doing whatever it takes to recognize that "Every Child Is A Winner."
Purpose Statement: The purpose of Upward is to recognize that every child is a winner by promoting:
1. Salvation - To share the love of Jesus Christ with everyone involved in Upward ministry.
2. Character - To help every child grow as Jesus did - spiritually, physically, mentally, and socially.
3. Self-Esteem - To help every child grow in their understanding and enjoyment of sports.
Upward Basketball Ministry is for boys and girls kindergarten through sixth grade. The emphasis of this basketball ministry is on Christlikeness and good sportsmanship, not final scores and league standings. Every child will receive equal playing time and instruction with an emphasis on having fun! Children will be exposed to scripture based devotions during their practices and spectators on game day will receive devotions and testimonies during halftime.
Our kindergarten experience is Co-ed and takes place for one hour on Saturdays only. First grade through sixth grade will have a one hour practice during the week in addition to eight games all played on Saturdays. Registration forms are accepted during the months of September and October for the upcoming season that begins the second Saturday in January and runs through mid-March.
Registration fees include a reversible mesh jersey and shorts, t-shirt, weekly devotional materials, and end of the season gift in addition to the 9 weeks of practices and 8 games.
