Cheerleaders will need to try on a uniform (estimated time five minutes.) Near the end of December, they will be notified by their coach as to squad name and practice day and time.

Basketball players will try on a uniform, be measured, and run through six drills in the gym (estimate time 15 minutes.) Near the end of December, they will be notified by their coach as to team name and practice day and time.


Donate to the Concession Stand

We know that everyone has the time or skills to volunteer weekly for Upward Sports but we have a way that everyone to be a part of this great ministry! Thousands of people come to gym during the season and many arrive hungry and thirsty. It takes a lot of supplies to keep the concession stand stocked and ready each week.  Donations are now being accepted at the Church Office.
