Promoting the Discovery of Jesus Through Sports.

Thank you to all the players, coaches, parents and volunteers for making the 2017 Upward Basketball Season another great success!

Playing with a Purpose

Every winter, NP Naz with our original partner First United Methodist Church and now a new partner NewPointe Community Church host Upward Basketball and Cheerleading. It is a place where your child can learn to play basketball and cheerlead in an environment that doesn't just involve sports, but life! Our coaches look beyond the sport to help mentor our kids in life, not just basketball. Games are held on Saturdays from mid January through early March.

At this point games and practices for each age group are tenatively scheduled at the following facilities:
