Upward Basketball and Cheerleading

Upward Basketball and Cheerleading

Every Child Is A Winner!

Upward offers basketball leagues for boys and girls, as well as cheerleading, ages 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 Edem Ablordeppey.


Team practices take place on Tuesday or Friday evenings in the FBCTLH Christian Life Center beginning the very end of November. Games are on Saturday mornings beginning in January with the final game in early March. We conclude the season with a Tuesday night celebration that includes free pizza, player prizes, and distributing team photos.
