refund policy

A full refund will be available to registered families if the 2021 season is canceled before the game. A 50% refund will be given if games have already started.
Playing kids basketball with Upward Sports is not only fun your child, but a great fit for your family! Our kids basketball programs conveniently fit into your family’s busy schedule with no travel teams and just a one-hour practice and one-hour game each week.

Coaches use practices and games to teach and build basketball skills while making sure the kids have fun. Kids will also learn teamwork and build self-esteem in our kids basketball leagues and kids basketball camps making for a positive sports experience.

Whether you have a child participating in UPWARD Basketball and Cheerleading or not, we encourage you to pray over this significant ministry, that God may use the events and those Christians involved to touch the lives of children and their families.
