Upward Basketball League Focuses On




Four Levels of Basketball Discovery

Upward Basketball provides an experience that grows with young athletes over time by using a four-level age appropriate format.  Each level is tailored to meet athletes where they are in their athletic journey, allowing them to reach their full potential, on and off the court.


Athletes will learn how to Rise Up and grow mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially through the 360 Progression.  They will be encouraged to have fun, develop skills, play hard, and play in such a way that others take notice.
