Upward Basketball

*New for 2013-14 season, online registration and payment!

Upward Basketball
This youth basketball league is for boys and girls from Kindergarten through 5th Grade. It runs from November through February each year. Our goal is to provide a fun environment built around healthy competition for kids, while teaching skills for the sports arena and values for life. We maximize the family schedule by having one hour-long practice each week and one weekly game. Individual registration is accepted, and teams are created to be even by balancing the talent on each team.
