    WHY UPWARD SPORTS?

    A Message From Upward Sports Originator Cas McCaslin

    (CLICK HERE)

    Upward Basketball (K5 - 6th Grade) at Grace Baptist Church seeks to develop the self-esteem of each participant, while teaching respect for authority, sportsmanship, character, and athletic skills through:

  • Keeping sportsmanship and competitiveness in proper perspective
  • Having only one hour of practice and one game each week
  • Having a set substitution system where all players are allowed equal playing time and equal opportunity for improvement
  • Exposing players to Scripture-based devotions during each practice and spectators to halftime testimonies each game day
  • A game day award following every game and an end of the season award
  • Thank you for registering your child. We are honored to have you and your family joining us this season.

    Garry Irvin - Children's Pastor
