About Upward Sports
“Using the universal language of sports, Upward Sports connects with children during a critical time in their lives to teach skills for the sports arena and values for life.” —Caz McCaslin, Founder and President
This year, nearly 550,000 children in 48 U.S. states and Canada will enjoy a fun sports experience based on healthy competition through Upward Sports, the world’s largest Christian-based kids sports league. With four sports programs—basketball, flag football, soccer and cheerleading—Upward Sports provides families with a family-friendly alternative to “win-at-all-costs” leagues.
Each year some one million people around the world play, coach, referee or volunteer in Upward Sports Leagues hosted by more than 2,400 churches. Anyone—children and volunteers of any faith or no faith—can participate in Upward Sports. Upward Sports provides a fun, family-friendly place for kids to play fun sports.
Upward Sports Leagues equip churches to connect with families in their own community through universal language of sports. By providing churches with turnkey league support, Upward Sports equips them to turn an available field or gym into a positive sports experience for the community. From leadership training conferences that train churches on how to deliver a first-class sports experience to quality game uniforms that make each player look like a pro, Upward Sports provides everything churches need to host a league. Upward Sports also provides more than a game-day experience, helping young athletes grow athletically and spiritually through a players-only, interactive website that includes games, skill-and-drill videos and discussion about the week’s Bible verse.
With more than 2,400 churches now offering Upward Sports Leagues and Camps, many options are available year round to fit your family’s busy schedule. Upward Sports’ fun and family-friendly leagues limit the time commitment to one practice and one game per week—avoiding player and parent burnout.
Research indicates that children’s moral foundations are generally in place by the time they reach age nine. Using the universal language of sports, Upward Sports’ Coaches and Volunteers connect with families during the formative years in a child’s life to develop values, athletic skills and a life-long love of the game.
