UPWARD BASKETBALL™ and CHEERLEADING
Upward® uses the game of basketball and cheerleading to teach children (boys and girls in K5-6th grade) that they are Winners! Not only are the children Winners in the game of basketball and cheerleading, but they are Winners, period. In Upward we teach the fundamentals of basketball and cheerleading, but we also teach much more. Through basketball and cheerleading, salvation in Jesus Christ is shared with all participants, and all the children are encouraged to grow in their character development and self-esteem.
In Upward Basketball™ all children make the team and each child is given a great opportunity to develop their game since players of equal ability play against one another. Also, the teams are organized as even as possible and no league standings are kept. Any child who wants to cheer will make the squad. In Upward the squads don’t have a particular team that they cheer for each week, but they cheer for all the basketball teams participating. The focus is more on having fun and learning, not winning, because in Upward Every Child Is A Winner™!
