What is Upward?

Upward Sports, the world’s largest Christian sports program for children, was created with a vision to provide the best sports experience possible for every child.

Basketball as a Ministry

The purpose of Upward Basketball is to fulfill God’s vision that He planned for us long ago by promoting:

Salvation—To share the love of Jesus Christ with everyone involved

Character—To help every child grow—spiritually, physically, mentally and socially

Self Esteem—To grow every child in their understanding and enjoyment of sports
