This year your kids can participate in a league that will redefine the word winner. Players look to their parents, coaches, and referees as models for sportsmanship, respect for authority, and positive attitudes. By being a positive participant in this league, you will provide a lasting effect in these children that will live well beyond the end of this season.

Upward Basketball is a “participant draft league” using a system designed by Upward which incorporates the participants evaluation process in team selection. Because of this, we will not be able to receive friend requests, carpool links, coaching requests or practice night requests. Players will be drafted and placed on teams according to their evaluations.
