2021 Upward Basketball & Cheerleading
WHAT IS UPWARD?
Young athletes at all skill levels are welcome to participate in our Upward Ministry sports leagues for basketball and cheerleading. Our coaches and volunteers invest not only in helping children learn and improve their mental and physical abilities, but also guide them to grow spiritually by learning discipline, good sportsmanship, and the grace offered by God through His Son, Jesus Christ. (And of course, they’ll have fun!)
