About Upward Sports
Playing with purpose
Upward Sports is an organized recreational league focused on developing young athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. Over the course of the program, players will develop individually, teams will grow together, and strong relationships will be formed during weekly practices and games. Emphasis is placed on learning new skills, sportsmanship and teamwork. Every player gets time on the court on game day. In Upward Cheerleading, cheers, chants, and pom routines are taught that provide excitement and energy on game day.
Building up your athlete for life
In today's "win at all costs" culture, we sometimes miss that winning (and losing) are part of the lessons in life. As a parent, you play a very important role in building the self-esteem and character of your child and every child in this league. Players look to their parents, coaches, and referees as models for sportsmanship, respect for authority, and positive attitudes. Make those winning (and sometimes losing) moments count!
