UpWard basketball/cheerleading

UPWARD basketball/cheerleading 2021

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.

Our Season:**

  • Registration for our 2021 Basketball/Cheerleading season opens this Fall.
  • Evaluations will take place in December.
  • Practices and games will begin in January.
** More specific dates and times will be set as we get closer to the season so we can monitor and adjust according to our state and national guidelines concerning COVID-19. 


If a game or practice is cancelled, you will be notified by your child’s coach.  We will also update any cancellations on our Facebook page:   https://www.facebook.com/Upward.at.RichfieldNaz/

Q: Are the teams co-ed?
A: Only the K-1 division is co-ed. All other divisions are not co-ed.

Q: What days are practices?
A: Every team practices one hour a week (including cheer). We work really hard to get all siblings on the same practice night.  Practices are held on either Mondays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays.

Q: When are games?
A: Game times are Fridays for our 6-8 grade division, Saturday mornings for our 4-5 grade division, and Saturday afternoons for our Kdg-3 grade division.

Q: How often do the cheerleader’s cheer?
A: The cheer squad cheers for one game a weekend, they cheer at least once for every age division. 

Q; What are the colors of the uniforms?
A: The uniform colors vary from year to year.
Your player kit comes with a reversible jersey and a t-shirt.
Reversible shorts are optional at a cost of $15 each.
