"Upward Sports helps church leaders leverage the power of sports to connect with families in their community. Our mission is promoting the discovery of Jesus through sports."
"Since 1995, millions of young athletes across the United States have participated in sports programs run by churches using Upward Sports as a strategy to impact their communities."
"Upward Sports started as a single church basketball league, and basketball has been our most popular sport ever since! From Recreation Leagues all the way up to Upward Stars Travel Teams, young basketball players can chart their own athletic journeys through multiple levels of programming – all while being developed into total athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially."
