What is it?

Upward Sports is a unique basketball/cheerleading experience that provides an encouraging and Christ-centered environment for children to have fun learning a sport while building friendships with others.

Who Can Participate?

Both boys and girls in 1st - 6th grade are eligible for basketball.
Girls in kindergarten - 6th grade are eligible for cheerleading.


You can register your child online HERE. We encourage each athlete to attend evaluation day!

Evaluation day (please make every effort to attend) will be held on November 2nd between 8:30AM and 1PM at Immanuel Church. Evaluations take about 20 minutes, and students can stop by anytime during the scheduled evaluation day!

During evaluation time, parents will determine the size of the uniform and attend a brief meeting, as students are evaluated on basic skills.


It takes many people to ensure a successful season.
