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.
UNIFORM COLORS FOR THE 2019 SEASON: Green and White
REGISTRATION: Registration opens September 17. The league is $85 per student (family discounts are available). This includes a reversible jersey, Upward t-shirt, season ending prize, and more! There are optional uniform shorts available for $15. Payment is required upon registration to confirm your spot.
PLEASE NOTE: Registration will close within each division as it fills, and waiting lists will start. For some grades, this can happen within a day or two of registration opening, so please do not wait to register if interested in playing.
EVALUATION NIGHTS: Evaluation nights will be the fourth week in October (22, 23 & 25). These nights allow us to confirm registration, uniform size, and complete a 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.
PRACTICES: Upward practices are on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday nights. Each team has one practice per week, one hour in length. Your practice night and time will be assigned once teams are finalized (December). When you register you are allowed to take one of those three nights out of the equation, but you are required to keep two options available. Due to league size, we cannot take any special requests for a specific night.
GAMES: Games are held on Friday evenings and all day Saturday. Each team has one game per weekend. Your game schedule will be handed out at your first practice. Game times are not yet finalized, but in general: Kindergarten plays Friday nights at 5:30 PM; 1st/2nd Girls play Saturday mornings; 1st/2nd Boys play Friday evenings and Saturday mornings; 3rd/4th girls play around noon on Saturdays; 3rd/4th boys play Friday nights and Saturday early afternoons; 5th/6th girls play Saturdays late afternoon; 5th/6th boys play Friday nights, Saturday mornings, and Saturday late afternoons; 7th and up play either Friday evenings or Saturday late afternoon/evenings.
