Registration for the 2022-2023 is now open! 

upward basketball

Our Upward basketball program is for kids and teens 4 years old through 9th grade. Our season starts late November and runs through mid February. We practice once a week either on Tuesday or Thursday, and games start early in January and run through February. Each age group has at least two teams, and these teams will compete against each other throughout the season. 


We divide the kids into different age groups.

  • Kindergarten (co-ed)
  • 1st-2nd grade boys
  • 1st-3rd grade girls
  • 3rd-4th grade boys
  • 4th-9th grade girls
  • 5th-9th grade boys
