About Upward Basketball
Our Upward Basketball League offers an extended, multi-month opportunity for character-building, player development, and the formation of deep relationships between teammates and coaches. Players will develop a love for basketball and a healthy competitive spirit and discover skills necessary to succeed both on and off the court. The game format and rules are designed to teach the game at an age specific level that grows with each young athlete. At Englewood, we desire for players to become better at their sport all while growing in their relationship with the Lord Jesus.
