Upward Basketball & Cheer

When is a game more than just a game?  We offer developmental and instructional team sports for kids in Grades K-8.  The Upward Sports Staff at Redland Baptist Church desire to change this generation.

We grow athletes:

  • Mentally – To make wise decisions
  • Athletically – To improve physical abilities
  • Spiritually – To embrace life’s purpose
  • Socially – To foster healthy relationships

Why choose us?

  • Upward Sports recreational athletes discover love for the game, and with a healthy competitive spirit, develop the skills they need to succeed in everything they do.
  • Competitive pricing to city and county rec. leagues
  • 1 practice and 1 game per week
  • Quality game day jersey/ cheer uniform
  • Age appropriate character and skill development both on and off the court.
  • Redland provides coaches clinics to improve and strengthen our coaches.
