Welcome to Upward


Upward Sports are Christian based programs that focus on evangelism and outreach while teaching solid sports skills all in an attempt to introduce kids to Jesus through sports.  



Players are given one hour of practice time per week which includes a coach-led devotion period.  Practices are on Mon, Tues, or Thurs and when registering you can pick one of the three that does not work for your player.  We will do our best to accomodate that when placing your child on a team.



Gamedays with Upward are unique and energetic.  We play for 8 Saturdays a season.  Soccer games begin around Labor Day.  Basketball/Cheer begin the first Saturday of January.  We have many various themes and activities to make the experience special.  



Everything wraps up with an awards ceremony to celebrate every player and have a little fun to end the season.  We would love to have you join us!



Ages: 5 yrs old (8/31/17) - 6th grade      Cost: $55 before Oct 28, $65 after


We are excited to host our 19th season of Upward Basketball and Cheer!  Upward is a fantastic opportunity to grow the game of basketball with your player.  From instructional in Kindergarten to more conventional basketball at 5th/6th grade levels every division adds another step to your players development.  All in an environment that seeks to introduce Jesus to your child through sports.


Every player must attend ONE of the evaluation nights (you may come to any of the three opportunities).  They take place at the Powerhouse (302 N Georgie).  If you cannot make any of them, please contact Cameron at derbyupward@gmail.com.
