Upward Sports at Grace Church is a sports ministry that promotes Christ-like character, sportsmanship, self-esteem in every child.

As we approach the fall and the return to school, we know that this is the time of year where people might begin wondering about Upward basketball. Because of COVID-19, we were not able to pull off Upward last year, and this year we are working to rebuild the leadership team that works so hard to make the program happen. While that means we will not be able to offer Upward for this season, we plan on Upward returning for the 2022-23 season and are very excited to continue to minister to the kids and families of our community in this way!

Upward Sports at Grace Church is for kindergarten through 8th grade.

  • We hold a one-day basketball and cheerleading clinic, normally in July.
  • The Upward season begins registration in late August to early September, with practices beginning in January and games beginning in mid-January. The season wraps up in late March (the 2021-2022 Upward season is currently on hold).

Children from all walks of life and with all skill levels and abilities are welcome to participate. Not only can the children participate, but there are also opportunities for parents and guardians to get involved and help in various areas of the ministry.
