Every winter, Battlefield Baptist hosts its annual Upward Basketball League. Children from several counties gather to be part of the most incredible youth basketball league this area has to offer. Parents and children agree, there is something special about Upward! In 1999, Battlefield joined Upward Basketball with a league of just 80 players. In each of the previous three seasons, almost 400 children participated in the basketball and cheerleading programs and in 2012 we had 433 participants and 94 coaches!!
With Upward Basketball and Cheerleading, every child is a WINNER!
Kindergarten to 6th Grade children are taught the basic skills of basketball, and most importantly the basic truth of the Bible. Upward is all about the kids. We seek to teach good sportsmanship, respect for authority, and team work, but the greatest lesson of all is the one about the Great Love that Jesus has for us all.
Registration will open this fall for next season. Due to the active and moving community in which we live, we do not maintain a mailing list for forms. For more information please email us at Upward@battlefieldbaptist.org.
