Upward Basketball

Upward Basketball is a unique sports program that is specifically designed to reach young people with the gospel of Jesus Christ - while helping them learn and develop athletic skills. Each child is given playing time during the games and worked with equally during practices. This ensures that no child is left out and everyone enjoys the opportunity to be a true part of the team.

Our caring coaches make the difference as well. Your child will be challenged to grow in their sports knowledge and ability - with an emphasis placed on doing one's best, while keeping a positive attitude and showing good sportsmanship. 

The Upward Basketball program at Shady Grove Church is available next season for children in Kindergarten through 6th Grade.
