The primary focus of Upward Basketball & Cheerleading is to point kids (and their parents) to Christ. Youth sports should be fun and challenging! Upward Sports will help develop athletic skills and also help participants learn biblical principles that apply both on and off the field.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions & protocols, Upward of Huntington will only offer K5 through sixth grade basketball and cheerleading for the 2021 season.
All basketball players must attend one evaluation. They will take place at River Cities Church as follows:
K5-2nd Grade: Monday, November 30
3rd-4th Grade: Tuesday, December 1
5th-6th Grade: Thursday, December 3
To limit the number in the building, please come at your designated time. Face coverings are required of everyone on evaluation night.
Last Names Beginning A-F @ 6 PM
Last Names Beginning G-L @ 6:30 PM
Last Names Beginning M-S @ 7 PM
Last Names Beginning T-Z @ 7:30 PM
Evaluations are not required for Cheerleaders. All other instructions are applicable. COVID-19 waivers will need to be signed by parent/guardian before first practice at the health screening station. Choose uniform size when you register.
First Practice Week: December 14
First Game: January 16
We thank you in advance for your cooperation with these necessary changes. Variations or a halt to our plans will be implemented based on counsel from medical professionals and leaders from our sponsoring churches.
