Upward Sports Boys/Girls Basketball & Girls Cheerleading Leagues

Upward Sports Basketball and Cheerleading Leagues offer a variety of opportunities for young athletes to discover and refine their athletic skills while cultivating a passion for the sport. Through age-appropriate team play, athletes begin to build positive character traits that will allow them to encourage, strengthen, and motivate themselves and their fellow teammates. As they learn and follow game rules, young athletes will also learn the value of sportsmanship with a healthy competitive spirit.

Boys/Girls Basketball League Description

No matter the level of basketball experience, your child will learn basketball skills from positive coaches. Our program will focus on teaching sportsmanship, self-esteem, and other values that encourage your child in basketball and in life. Game days will be high-energy and designed for family enjoyment. South Haven’s Upwards Basketball program provides a positive sports experience for the whole family.

Girls Cheerleading League

Cheerleading is a huge part of sporting events at all levels of play. When athletes need encouragement and fans need entertainment, cheerleaders can take your sports experience to another level because they add excitement and spirit to any Upward Game Day.
