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.
At NorthPark, Upward Basketball offers an extended, multimonth 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.
Cheerleading is a huge part of sporting events at all levels of play. When athletes need encouragement and fans need entertainment, cheerleaders can take their sports experience to another level, because they add excitement and spirit to any Upward game day! Through Upward's 360 Progression, Upward Cheerleading programs aim to develop each athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. Each league and clinic is focused on teaching cheer skills and the foundations needed for the next level of cheerleading.
