Upward 2021

COVID-19 has brought many changes to our world and 2020 is not how any of us anticipated it going. Upward too is adapting to overcome the odd circumstances we find ourselves in, and has decided to not host a traditional basketball & cheerleading league this year. However, we will offer weekend clinics (February and March) for basketball and cheerleading. The clinics will happen on Saturdays with a master coach and several of our Upward coaches to assist. We believe this is a way to still offer the Upward experience to our community and help keep our kids safe during COVID.

Dates for clinics are to be determined. We will host a K-2nd basketball clinic, 3rd-6th basketball clinic, and cheerleading clinic. Registration for basketball and cheerleading clinics will open in December.
