Helpful Information


Upward Basketball is a sports program held each winter for children in grades Kindergarten - 6.  Players are divided according to ability and height to create equal teams. There is no "trying out"; all children who register are placed on a team.  At evaluations prior to the season, your child will participate in several basketball drills to ensure fair play.

Games take place on Saturdays, and there is only one weekly one hour practice to accommodate busy family schedules.  See Key Dates below for the game schedule and practice dates.  When you register, every child may indicate one night they cannot practice.

We look forward to another season and we are truly excited about partnering with families throughout the community to make Upward Basketball the best sports and family experience it can be!
