Would your child like to have equal playing time?

“Upward” promotes Character and Self-Esteem in every child:

Providing an evaluation system that promotes equal teams and opportunities

Establishing a one-hour practice and game each week.

Implementing a substitution system for each team, allowing every child equal playing time.

Creating the opportunity for every child to learn the skills of the game.

Today’s sports culture has created a “win at all cost” mentality. However, “Upward” defines winning as learning and/or teaching lessons in the game of life. The emphasis is placed on having fun and good sportsmanship.
