The mission of our recreation ministry is to promote the discovery of Jesus through the use of sports. Our coaches, parents, volunteers, and staff seek to develop athletes mentally, spiritually, athletically, and socially, producing players who excel both on and off the field.
We use the Upward Sports 360 model which is a uniquely designed sports experience that develops the total athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. This model allows us to create fun, energizing, and safe environments for children to compete and learn together.
Our coaches develop the self-esteem of every child while also taking time to instill sportsmanship with a competitive spirit and teach the fundamentals of the game. Our referees do a great job of making this a competitive yet instructive league, where each player experiences significant growth in skill and knowledge of the game.
Upward Basketball & Cheer: Begins in January and runs through March for grades K-5. Our Upward Basketball & Cheer season runs from the end of January to mid-March each year. Consider registering your child to play this season, we’d love to have you. Our league is co-ed for K-3rd grade, and we now have a 4-5th grade division which will be co-ed should we not have enough girls registered to form their own division. We also have excellent cheer coaches. Our season includes an end-of-year Awards Night/Ceremony. Please use the Upward registration link above to register.
Volunteers: Volunteers are the strength of everything we do! We are always looking for volunteers to referee games, coach teams, run the concession stand, etc. We have a great group of dedicated volunteers, but we’d love for you to consider how you can help.
Future Plans: We hope to expand our recreation program to include other sports (flag-football, baseball, soccer, volleyball, etc.).
Please contact our Recreation Director, Michelle Campling, if you would like to be involved in any of these efforts or for more information.
