Upward Volunteers

Upward basketball and cheerleading is a great place to serve our community, and connect with other church members.  We have volunteer opportunities ranging from concessions, nurses, media, as well as coaches and referees.



For boys and girls in grades K through 6th.   Helping young athletes discover and refine their skills while building positive character traits that allow them to encourage, strengthen, and motivate themselves and their teammates.

Playing sports and discovering Jesus is the goal of our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading program.  We incorporate the love of sports with reaching children and families for Christ.
