Our Program

Our Upward program exists to help the youth in our community grow physically, mentally, and in character. Through a positive, yet challenging environment, we work with parent coaches to encourage our participants to push themselves in each of these areas.

We will have two leagues this year to help with social distancing in our facilities.
