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, and agree to our first commitment that, "Jesus Christ is Lord."

Upward 2018 Play Begins January 27, 2018

Wow! You don't want to miss coming out on a Saturday (from 8 a.m. through 6:00 p.m.) to watch kids that began to register back in October, and have been practicing since the first week of January. 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 through March 10.


Volunteers are needed as teaching 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 this season. How can you know if we still need volunteers? If we are still playing, it isn't to late to see a league in action that proclaims "Jesus Christ is Lord." For more information, contact Bob Metcalf.
