Upward Basketball and Cheerleading provides a fun environment that is built around healthy competition, while creating a positive experience. Our focus will be on teaching the game of basketball and routines for the cheerleaders, 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 possible balanced teams and will conclude with a fun and exciting Award Ceremony at the end of the season.
