Upward Information

2017-2018 Upward Season

Register Online at http://registration.upward.org/UPW65376 

This year we would like to invite you and your child to participate in our Upward Basketball Program. Upward promotes an opportunity to learn the game of basketball in an environment that is welcoming to players of all levels.

Upward is a "participant draft league," this means that it uses an evaluation process to build the teams in a balanced way. Because of this system, we cannot receive friend requests, carpool links or coaching requests. Players will be placed on teams based off their evaluation performance.

Returning players, please read information carefully as there are new rules and formats to our league this year at Memorial Baptist Church.
