About UPWARD Sports
Established in 1995, Upward Sports is the world’s largest Christian youth sports provider. Upward Sports is the only organization that offers the 360 Progression™, a uniquely designed total sports experience that adapts and expands as players grow in their personal athletic journeys. The 360 Progression develops total athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially – producing players who excel both on and off the field. Today, approximately half a million players at more than 2,000 churches in 47 states participate in camps, clinics, and leagues through Upward Sports’ Recreation Division. In 2012, Upward Sports created its Performance Division – Upward Stars – aimed at young athletes wanting to further develop their skills and participate in a higher level of completion. Within the first year, approximately 900 athletes competed on Upward Stars teams.
Our Mission: The Expectations of God Moments: We believe that God is at work all around us. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” – Ephesians 2:10
The Life of Integrity: We believe that how we live is more important than what we say. “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” – Galatians 2:20
The Opportunity to Serve: We believe that it is a privilege to serve others. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” – Mark 10:45.
The Discipline of Excellence: We believe in exceeding expectations. “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed; do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” – Colossians 3:17.
The Priority of Children: We believe that every child is a winner. “In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.” – Matthew 18:14.
