Since 2005, thousands of young athletes ages in K-6th Grade have participated in Centreville Upward Basketball. Young basketball players chart their own athletic journeys through multiple levels of play - all while being developed into total athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.
Cheerleading is a huge part of sporting events at all levels of play. When athletes need encouragement and fans need entertainment, our cheerleaders (1st - 6th Grade) take the sports experience to another level because they add excitement and spirit to any Upward Game Day!
For the first time ever, Upward is hosting six 4-hour clinics on Saturdays throughout this summer at Centreville UMC! Clinics are open to rising K-6th graders.
Fundamental skills are taught and practiced at our clinics. The skills taught include: ball handling and dribbling, passing and receiving, shooting, footwork and agility, and defensive movement.
Our driving purpose is a desire to help young athletes play with purpose.
Upward Sports does this by being the only youth sports provider that develops the total athlete in the following four areas: mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.
We call this development the 360 Progression. This is based on Luke 2:52 which says, "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man."
