"Promoting the discovery of Jesus through sports"


The 360 Progression

Upward Sports is the only youth sports provider of the 360 Progression, which is a uniquely designed sports experience that develops the total athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually and socially. As players progress through Upward Sports programming, these four teachings of the 360 Progression adapt and expand with them. It is centered on the development of Jesus found in Luke 2:52 – And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.


Upward Sports Athletes grow in character, confidence, faith and sportsmanship during their personal athletic journeys, and become more than just an athlete. Whenever athletes participate in any Upward Sports program, they experience the 360 Progression; regardless of age, skill level, program type, or how long they participate in the programs.


Our desire is to provide a positive sports experience for every child.
To do that we:

* Create a fun and competetive sports environmnent
* Teach sport fundamentals
* Teach life lessons from the Bible during practice huddles
* Have coaches who are focused on having fun, developing skills and building character.
