Early Registration ON-LINE saves! ( i.e. multiple child discounts available on-line only)
Registration Process 2017-2018
Registration Process 2021-2022
On-Line Registration Begins September 1, 2021

We will open ON-LINE registration on September 1, 2021.  The On-Line registration fee of $95 is paid by Credit Card only, however on-line registration includes same family multiple child discounts of $5 off for each additional child registered during the same session from the same family (only available on-line).


Payment by cash or check are due with the registration brochure in church office. If you wish to pay by cash or check, select "check/other" for "Payment Type" on the registration brochure.  Please note that you are not officially registered until payment is received.  Please mail or bring your check and registration to:  Jarvis Memorial UMC.  Attn: Upward Basketball. 510 S Washington Street. Greenville, NC 27858.  You can bring your payment to the church during business hours: 9:00am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday (Oct. 1st thru Oct 31). 

The Upward brochures are NO LONGER distributed in all elementary Pitt County Schools, however they are distributed to churches and private schools as allowed.  Jarvis & St. James Upward League and Temple Baptist Upward League operate their leagues separately.  When using the manual brochure or registering on-line be sure to enroll in the League of your choice.

Registration is on a first come first received basis.  Once a gender/grade division is full, we close that gender/grade registration.  We strongly encourage on-line early registration to: 1) reduce the potential of being wait listed; 2) lower a families overall cost in fees; and 3) improve the quality of the information entered into the Upward League Management computer system.  Walk-in registrations during the Evaluation nights are not guaranteed and are considered a late registration pending League capacity limits.  We make every effort to include every child interested but are limited by team size and number of teams due to gym time available to the League.

This year we are requiring the fee payment be included with all registrations by charge card (on-line only) or by check or cash for those dropping off or mailing the Upward brochure.  Your cleared check will be your confirmation of registration while on-line registrations will receive an email confirmation (remember to check the box requesting e-mail confirmation).  Cash payments must be made in person on drop off at Jarvis Memorial to receive their confirmation notification.

IMPORTANT REGISTRATION NOTE:  Every participant must have at least ONE parent/guardian email address attached to their registration for league communication purposes.  Please be sure to include one or two parent/guardian email addresses and cell phone#’s during the registration process. 

Financial assistant will be based on availablity from scholarship/sponsorship funds and the prior discussion/approval by the League Director.
