UPWARD SPORTS® BASKETBALL LEAGUE

This season, you will participate in a league that will redefine the word winner. Today’s sports culture has created a “win at all cost” mentality. However, in Upward Sports®, success is not based on wins and losses. Coaches are trained that success is determined by how they convey salvation, character, and self-esteem to each child. Upward Sports® defines winning as learning and/or teaching lessons in the game of life.
