Upward Basketball and Cheerleading


Upward Basketball Camp

Registration is now OPEN for our summer 2019 Upward Basketball Camps which we are excited to host during the weeks of July 8th and July 15th.  The camps are rising 1st – 6th grade girls and boys, with the morning hours (9am-12pm) for the 1st-3rd graders and the afternoon hours (1pm – 4pm) for the 4th-6th graders daily through each week.  As with all our Upward activities, our purpose is to share the love of Jesus Christ with each camper and all those involved.  Campers will learn basketball basics through drills and scrimmages, Bible scriptures, and life lessons from our Camp Director and the volunteer coaches.  Each camper will receive a t-shirt, water bottle, basketball, and loads of FUN! 

We are a volunteer led ministry; if you are interested in volunteering to help with snacks or with coaching, please contact Nina at  

The early registration cost of $90 per player is effective until June 16 (for the July 8 camp) and June 23 (for the July 15 camp).  After those dates, the registration cost increases to $115 per player.  We offer sibling discounts and have a need-based scholarship fund; please inquire at for details.
