Upward Basketball & Cheerleading

2021 Season

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.

  • REGISTRATION IS ONLINE ONLY with limited availability in each grade division and required prior to Evaluation. Registration will close November 29 or once we reach maximum capacity.
  • The parent/guardian of each participant will be required to sign a COVID-19 waiver when you bring your child to evaluation night.
  • Parent/guardian will bring the child to the health screening station (RED DOOR ENTRANCE) and return for their child at the end of practice. Practices will be "closed" to only participants.
  • Game day spectators will be reduced to only parents/guardians & siblings of the participants in order to provide the safest environment for everyone. Spectators are asked to wear face coverings.
  • If the WV COVID-19 guidelines prohibit in-school instruction or athletic events, we will not have practice or games the corresponding week.

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 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.
