Upward Sports

Parents desire to see their children have fun and be successful in every arena they may participate. So why does this desire often turn into disaster when that arena is sports? Athletics allow children to gain all the essentials we want for them: fun, improving skills, friendships, discipline, and many more. Studies show that 73% of kids quit playing sports by the age 13 because it is no longer fun, and that is just not acceptable. We at Upward are committed to helping children develop spiritually, physically, mentally and socially through sports.

Upward is an evangelistic sports ministry specifically designed for K5 through sixth grade boys and girls that promotes salvation, character, and self-esteem in every child. In addition to basketball, Upward offers cheerleading, soccer and flag football programs to complete your Upward ministry. Upward provides opportunities for all believers, no matter what denomination, to become meaningfully involved in the ministries of our  church. They will have the opportunity 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.
