Upward Basketball

Upward Basketball

Mission:  Promoting the discovery of Jesus through sports

Bon Air Baptist Church partners with Upward Sports to offer basketball to boys and girls in Kindergarten through the 6th grade. We connect with our members and our community to offer a program that focuses on sharing and creating gospel opportunities while teaching the game of basketball.

Online registration for Upward Basketball opens Friday September 15th for boys and girls Kindergarten – 6th grade. Our league reached capacity two weeks before registration ended last year and had a very long waitlist. Please DO NOT WAIT to sign up if you plan to play this season. All leagues will be COED, unless there’s enough girls to make a separate league. League breakdown by grade is below.

Players have ONE request this season. You may either request a practice night exclusion OR a carpool request (ONE PLAYER – list in notes section of online registration) If you request a player for carpool, they must also request you. We will not honor multiple requests for teammates. If you list both a practice night exclusion and a carpool request, we will only honor the practice night exclusion.
