ABOUT UPWARD BASKETBALL & CHEERLEADING:
Upward promotes character and fun for every child by:
- Providing an evaluation system that promotes equal and competitive teams.
- Establishing a one-hour practice time each week as well as an Eight-Game Season.
- Implementing a substitution system for each team, allowing every child equal playing time
- Creating the opportunity for every child to learn and improve their skills basketball and/or cheerleading.
Participating in Upward gives children a chance to experience good sportsmanship on and off the court. Children receive a special recognition award after every game and have the opportunity to develop new friendships. Along with the unique sports experience, children also receive the following Upward items:
Basketball Players -- T-shirt, Reversible Jersey, Car Magnet, Upward Music CD, and an End-of-Season Award.
Cheerleaders -- Uniform, Megaphone, Poms, Car Magnet, Upward Music CD, and an End-of-Season Award.
