Upward Basketball

The Purpose of Upward Basketball

We want children to

  1. Learn fundamental basketball. Our coaches and referees have been trained to teach basic skills to children new to basketball and work to improve the skills of experienced children.
  2. Build character. Sportsmanship and encouragement are both taught and modeled. Each week the tea learns a Bible verse during practice.
  3. Learn about God’s love for them and their relationship with Him.
  4. Have FUN! Every player is introduced before the game, is given equal playing time during the game, and receives an award after every game.
