How is Upward different from other sports leagues?
Our Upward Sports League is a unique offering for youth sports in the area. The Upward Sports model emphasizes building character and integrity on and off the court, instead of a “win at all costs” mentality associated with today’s sports world. Go to www.upward.org to learn more.
How are the teams selected?
Each player must attend an evaluation. This is not a try out, but just a chance for us to evaluate each child’s skill level and experience. We use this information to draft teams that are as equal as possible. This will allow for competitive and even play for each team.
Can I choose my practice night?
A player is not able to select his/her practice night. During the registration process, you may select one night they cannot practice.
Can I request a coach?
Parents who coach are assigned to their child’s team. Because our goal is to have balanced and competitive teams, players are not able to request specific coaches.
