Upward Sports Ministry

Promoting the discovery of Jesus, through sports.

Upward Sports, the world's largest Christian youth sports league, has become the place to play fun sports for more than half a million families in the United States and Canada. Last year, nearly 550,000 K5 through sixth-graders enjoyed basketball, soccer, flag football or  cheerleading experiences through one of over 2,800 leagues and camps in the US. Upward Sports programming focuses on building a healthy competitive spirit and developing soccer skills in young athletes while reaching them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our mission is based on Luke 2:52: “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” Coaches, referees, and parents strive to help players develop mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially through sports.



At Upward Sports, families matter. Our leagues give families all the benefits of participating in team sports while protecting them from hectic travel schedules and the win-at-all costs mentality that burns out young athletes. With just a one-hour practice and one-hour game each week, our leagues conveniently fit into busy family schedules.

At Triad Baptist Church, we offer Upward Basketball & Cheerleading, Upward Soccer, and Upward Flag Football & Cheerleading leagues throughout the year.
