An exciting and fun basketball and cheerleading program for children that seeks to develop character in every participant, providing an equal opportunity for improvement while stressing sportsmanship in every situation.

COVID 19 update: As with all youth sports programs, Upward has been impacted by COVID -19 and as a result, the 2021 season at Highlands won’t look like it has in previous years. Instead, we are reviewing alternatives to provide kids with a fun Upward basketball and cheer experience. We plan to closely monitor the current health guidelines and create an event that fits within the state regulations at that time.

We are disappointed not to be able to run a full league season this year. More information will be posted here once plans are finalized. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We know this year has had its challenges in a lot of ways for many of us, yet we are excited about this new opportunity we have ahead of us to create a new way for families to have something to look forward to and for kids to grow in their skills of basketball and cheer.
