Upward Basketball and Cheerleading

Upward Basketball and Cheerleading

Upward Basketball and Cheerleading…Every Child Is A Winner!

Upward features basketball leagues for boys and girls, as well as cheerleading, for children 5 years old (Kindergarten) through 6th grade, and features equal teams, equal playing time, post-game awards, and much more! In Upward, not only do children learn about Jesus, but all participants have the opportunity to develop their character and self-esteem through healthy competition. Upward basketball or cheerleading is a 2-hour weekly commitment: practices and games are each one hour per week. For more information, please contact Josh Hall.


Games take place on Saturday mornings in the FBCTLH Christian Life Center beginning in January with the final game in late February or early March. We conclude the season with a Tuesday night celebration that includes free pizza, player prizes, and distributing team photos.


Unfortunately, First Baptist Church is unable to offer Upward basketball and cheerleading this season. For those families with basketball players in third grade or older, Celebration Baptist Church also offers a great Upward basketball program. Their online registration deadline is December 7, 2016 with mandatory evaluations on December 6 and 8, and their games will be in January and February 2017.

Registration for our 2018 season should open in September 2017.
