What Is Upward Sports?

Upward Sports is a positive sports experience that offers both parents and kids exactly what they want in a sports league. Parents love the family-friendly schedule, with a welcoming environment and coaches who teach the sport without yelling. Kids love the fact that they get to play or cheer every game, make new friends, and have fun learning new skills.


Check out the opportunities for your family below. All Upward volunteers must complete Child Protection First! training, and agree to our first commitment that, "Jesus Christ is Lord."
