Soccer – Spring
Soccer is the world’s most popular sport! It’s growing every year in the United States, in Indiana, and in our city. As more of our children in Ft. Wayne take up soccer we hope and pray that our Upward program will be not only a place for them to grow their skills as athletes but also grow their relationship with Jesus! We hope your child will join us.
Basketball – Winter
Indiana is a basketball state! There’s no way around that. Children grow up dreaming of college hoops and the NBA. As parents you might have spent time on the driveway reenacting Reggie vs. the Knicks of the 90’s. Today, kids dream of being Paul George, Lebron James or Tamika Catchings. Upward basketball seeks to help them grow their basketball while also growing their relationship with Jesus.
Cheerleading – Winter
Cheerleading is a part of almost every sport. Cheerleaders add another level of entertainment to sports as they entertain and lead the audience in supporting their team! Upward cheerleading is a special part of our winter program and seeks to help our cheerleaders grow in their relationships with Jesus.
