Upward Basketball is designed to build athletic skills, character, confidence, and spirit. Whether you are searching for a league, camp, or clinic, Upward Basketball programs are committed to developing the TOTAL athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.
Hosted by local churches, Upward Basketball Leagues offer an extended, multi-month opportunity for character-building, player development, and the formation of deep relationships between teammates and coaches. Players will develop a love for basketball and a healthy competitive spirit and discover skills necessary to succeed both on and off the court. The game format and rules are designed to teach the game at an age specific level that grows with each young athlete.
What does a basketball athlete receive?

Basketball camps feature everything you could want in a week-long program: skill development, games and scrimmages, Biblical messages, and the chance to form meaningful relationships with coaches and fellow participants. Camp is a great way to focus on individualized skill development as you look to improve your game!
One-day basketball clinics provide a key overview to all elements of the game, building out the basics while maximizing the amount of development possible in the short time frame. Designed to focus on the foundations and fundamentals of the sport, clinics offer a surge of intentional basketball skill instruction in a fun, fast-paced environment.
