We will be entering our 13th season of Upward Basketball. We had 616 players last season!

At Greece Assembly we offer divisions for:  

Kindergarten - Coed (must be attending Kindergarten in September, 2018)

1st through 6th Grade - Boys and Girls (divisions split by grade/gender)  

7th-12th Grade - Boys

INTRO TO UPWARD:  Upward is a national sports program that partners with churches to provide a quality sports league for kids, while teaching kids about faith and true sportsmanship.  Players sign up as individuals and are placed on teams.  Every effort is made for equal competition between teams.  To increase team success, younger players shoot on lowered hoops with smaller basketballs.  To reduce unneeded pressure, no league standings are kept Kindergarten through 6th Grade.

REGISTRATION:  The league is $85 per student (family discounts are available).  This includes a reversible jersey, Upward t-shirt, season ending prize, and more.  Early registration ends October 29 (as long as spots are still available), after which a $10 late fee will be applied.  There are optional uniform shorts available for $15.  Payment is required upon registration.

EVALUATION NIGHTS:  Evaluation nights allow us to confirm registration, uniform size, and basketball skills assessment.  Attendance is required for registration to be complete. This is not a tryout.  If on the waiting list, you do not need to attend an evaluation unless a spot becomes available for your child.  These take place in November (exact dates will be announced early fall).

SEASON DATES:  The 2018 season will run from January 8 through March 24th. There is one practice a week (Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday evening), and one game on the weekend (games begin the weekend of January 19th). Games run Friday evenings and all day Saturdays (game times based on division).  

UNIFORM COLORS:  This season's colors are coming soon.
