Higher Ground Sports

Welcome to our new & revamped Sports Ministry (formerly Upward Sports)!  We are so glad you are here.  Since you are here, it’s more than likely that you and/or your child are looking to get involved in a sport somehow.  That is wonderful! You have come to the right place.  Whether you or your child is an expert at a particular sport or you are just starting out, this is the place to be at.  Our goal at Scotsdale’s Higher Ground Sports is to help our athletes and their families develop spiritually, physically, mentally and socially through this sports ministry.

We believe that sports are a universal language that have the ability to cross all social, racial, cultural and religious barriers and unite people in a language that is common to all.  Sports enable relationships to be formed and provide a platform for transformation in people’s lives.  Through Scotsdale’s Higher Ground Sports athletes will gain all the essentials we want for them: fun, improving skills, friendships, discipline, and much more. 

We are an evangelistic sports ministry specifically designed for K5 through 6th grade boys and girls that promotes salvation through Christ alone, character and self-esteem in every child. At this time we offer Basketball & Cheerleading in the Spring and Soccer in the Fall.   

Scotsdale’s Higher Ground Sports provides opportunities for all believers, no matter what denomination, to become meaningfully involved in the ministries of our church.  Opportunities will be given to pray for the program, coach a team, referee a game, share a devotion, and develop relationships in order to open avenues of ministry to the people of our community who will participate in our program.
