A Basketball League for Kindergarten – 6th Grade!
Upward Basketball is designed to build athletic skills, character, confidence, and spirit. It provides a great experience that grows with young athletes over time by using an age appropriate format. Christ church is currently making plans for our fifth season of Upward Basketball this fall! Due to the changing circumstances surrounding the Covid pandemic, we are taking extra time to be sure to offer Upward at Christ Church in the best way for all.

Practices have historically been held on Tues or Thurs, but Wed maybe an option based on coaches as player availability. Two teams practice at the same time, each getting a half court to practice on. There are also multiple waves of practices a night. The K5 division does not practice during the week but has practice time before their game on Saturday.
