Upward Sports

Upward is a fun, reliable, passionate, and encouraging sports experience for boys and girls. Unique aspects of Upward include an evaluation system that promotes equal and competitive teams as well as a
substitution system which allows for equal playing time for all participants. Through Upward, children are exposed to quality coaching and sport development. Upward emphasizes character and integrity instead of a “win at all costs” mentality associated with today’s sports world. Plus, practices and games are each limited to one hour per week.
