Upward Sports, the world’s largest Christian sports league for children, teaches sport fundamentals in an environment of healthy competition, helping kids to develop skills for the sports arena and values for life. Upward is based on the Christian principles of having good character, integrity, respect for others and a sense of fair play. The program is designed to ease family stress by having only a one-hour practice during the week and one game each Saturday morning through early March.
