At Fellowship of Wildwood, we believe it is important to connect with the next generation and give them a positive environment for them to learn, stay active, and have fun. Through our Upward Sports programs, kids can do just that.

Upward Soccer and Upward Basketball with Cheerleading provides a fun environment, built around healthy competition, while creating a positive experience. Our focus will be on teaching the skill set for each of those sports, along with teaching the children important values for life, and the great news that Jesus loves each and every one of them.

As host of the league, Fellowship of Wildwood will provide a first class organized league that your entire family will enjoy. It will start with an evaluation of every player to help create the best chance of having balanced teams and will conclude with a fun and exciting Award Ceremony at the end of the season. Every participant will feel like a pro when they receive a quality uniform, have their names announced at the start of every game, and a guarantee of equal play time every game.
