What is Upward Sports?
by Bob Metcalf
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.
Online registration has begun for the 2018 Upward season for 5-year-old Kindergartners through 8th graders. Details of the league may abe viewed here.
Kindergartners only practice on game days since it is a developmental league. First through 8th graders practice one night per week, and all games are played on Saturdays.
Volunteers are needed for serving as coaches, referees, concession stand workers, as host families, and at the scorers table. If you wish to invest in the lives of kids and their families, consider serving through Upward next season. Coaches and referee applications are available NOW for the 2018 season. Please note that all coaches must complete a background check and must have attended one Child Protection First! training class either this year or from a previous year. ALL coaches must attend one coaches meeting. Dates for the meetings have been scheduled for November 20, December 4, and January 2.
