Our sports ministry is a great place for kids to grow in their sports skills and also learn about teamwork, attitude, and of course, Jesus! Upward Basketball gives kids a great opportunity to learn basketball in a league setting, where every player gets equal playing time and kids are encouraged to grow in their skills through practices and games.
