Upward, Onward ...

More than once I've posted something in this space about Upward, and urged your participation in a program that aims "to introduce children to Jesus Christ by creating opportunities to serve through sports ... a parachurch organization which currently partners with churches in over 40 denominations to share the gospel with children and their families. "

According to
their website, "Upward is a fun, reliable, passionate and encouraging sports experience for boys and girls, in K5 through sixth grade. Upward provides first class, organized and detailed sports programming in basketball, soccer, flag football and cheerleading."

"Unique aspects of Upward include an evaluation system that promotes equal and competitive teams as well as a substitution system which allows for equal playing time for all participants.Through Upward, children are exposed to quality coaching and sport development. Upward emphasizes character and integrity instead of a 'win at all costs' mentality associated with today’s sports world."

Up till now, I've focused on the basketball and cheerleading programs available locally ... but according to yard signs popping-up around town, they will have a
flag football program at Kelview Heights Baptist Church, and the time to get involved, is NOW.
