Thank you so much for choosing Jarvis & St. James Upward Basketball and Cheerleading League for your family’s sports experience. We want to welcome you to our league and our team of churches that are dedicated to making this the best season for your family.

We are a Christian sports league and we will do our best to live up to the high standards that God has set for us. Upward Sports mission is to promote the discovery of Jesus through sports. You know, God gave us the Bible to answer all of life’s questions and to give us a standard to live by. There are sixty-six books in the Bible that outline the way we should live. He even broke it down into 10 commandments, but we, as the simple minded creatures that we are, want Him to make it even easier, so, He did.

Jesus gave these two commandments that are the greatest commandments of all, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, your soul, your mind, and your heart” AND to “love your neighbor as yourselves.” Our goal for this season is to spread the love of God by using basketball and cheerleading as tools. Part of your child’s practice each week will include a devotion that they will be able to apply to their daily lives and every game will have a short devotion for our families.

We want to provide a safe, fun, and convenient sports experience for your family and not only tell of Gods love but show it through our actions and throughout the league. We are excited about what God has in store for us this season and we can’t wait to share it with you!
