Upward Flag football and cheerleading

About Upward

Upward Sports are designed for young athletes to discover their passion for the sport and improve their game through healthy competition.  Our league strives to develop youth mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.  Upward supports an equal opportunity / fairness theme where every athlete is the star of the season. We do our best to teach players the rules of the games, how to play and work together as a team, and how to have fun while learning about Jesus. 


All boys and girls in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade are welcome to play Flag Football.  We also have Cheerleading as an option for girls in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade.

Please pray to God about this Flag Football and Cheerleading season.  Pray that families will get involved and draw closer to God through it all.  Pray for the leaders and volunteers that they will have the strength, energy, and discernment to lead and serve.  Pray for the boys and girls who will participate that they will stay safe, have fun, and learn about Jesus!  


Providing this ministry does take funds.  We tried to keep the cost down as much as we could for the participants, but there is always a need for scholarships, equipment, and maintenance.  If you would like to help by giving, please click here.
