Upward is a first-class sports experience for children that emphasizes healthy competition, sportsmanship, skills building and fun versus the "win-at-all-costs" mentality associated with many sports leagues.  On top of equipping children with sport fundamentals needed to participate at the next level, some unique features to Upward are:
  1. Each child is evaluated before the team selection process to create balanced teams that are competitive.
  2. Upward utilizes a unique substitution system which guarantees every child equal playing time.
  3. Upward aims to teach both athletic skill as well as values for success on and off the playing field/court.
  4. Upward prioritizes a family friendly schedule by conducting one-hour practices and games each week.
  5. With supportive coaches and a positive sports environment, Upward is designed to bring out “the winner” in every child regardless of the game’s score.
