Upward Basketball 

This was a GREAT year for Upward Basketball with over 90 children participating!  We’re thankful for all of our volunteer coaches, referees, concession workers and clean-up crew who worked to make this year a success.  Our year ended with great entertainment from the Liberty University Dunk Team, which the children (and adults) seemed to thoroughly enjoy.  Sign Ups will start again in NOVEMBER 2018.  
 
The focus of UPWARD Basketball is to teach the game of basketball through healthy competition while building athletic foundations that prepare athletes for the next level of play.  Through age-appropirate team play, athletes begin to build positive character traits that will allow them to encourage and strengthen themselves and their teammates.
 
UPWARD Basketball at Maysville Baptist is not only fun your child, but a great fit for your family! Registration begins in November each year with once per week practices starting in December.  Games begin in January and go through February and are always played on Saturday mornings at Maysville Baptist.  No travel games, no multiple nights of practice, just a one-hour practice during the week and a one-hour game on Saturday.  
 
Coaches are from our church and community and are screened through our Sports Ministry Director, Pastor and a formal background check. Practices and games are times for coaches to teach and build basketball skills while making sure the kids have fun. In addition, coaches lead a short devotion at practice that reinforces positive character traits and Pastor Westly shares a short video and message during each half time.
