We take pride in offering 2 levels of the Upward 360 Progression.

Discovery Level (Kindergarten-3rd grade) – Where young athletes are introduced to the game of basketball. Players learn the basic rules of the game and the fundamentals of shooting, passing, dribbling, and defending in a positive and encouraging environment. Alongside the discovery of the game, players at this age will also be discovering Christ. Players are introduced to scripture and daily devotions to learn about life’s purpose, Christ’s love and how to carry themselves with sportsmanship

Development Level (4th – 8th grade) – Where young athletes begin wanting a little more from their sports experience. We are proud to offer a Basketball experience where players can begin taking their games to the next level and learning the skills that will be expected of them at the Middle School and High School levels of Basketball. Alongside this, players at this age will also be developing in their faith. Daily devotions begin asking more of kids including beginning to seek their calling and purpose in life.
