Upward at FAITH is a high-quality sports program designed to help every player develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. Players of all skill levels in 1st through 6th grade will love experiencing a unique basketball league, emphasizing competition and sportsmanship in a fun and encouraging environment.

As we are all aware, Covid-19 has given us no end of challenges to our normal way of life. For this reason, we are restructuring our league to take on a “Pod” format, where each division will be self-contained, minimizing the number of players, coaches, and families we have on-site and interacting at one time. The format will look similar to a basketball clinic, but with some improved elements.

Here is a rundown of the adjustments you can expect:

 

  • Each player will come out to one assigned 1.5-hour session each week with all of the players in their division. (Due to this format, we are unable to honor scheduling requests and realize that there is a significant chance that siblings will not be able to practice on the same night.)

  • During each session, players will participate in a 30-minute practice, working with coaches to develop their skills through drills.

  • Following that practice, we will move into a 45-minute uniformed and refereed game following the same Upward substitution format that ensures equal playing time for each player who attends the entire season.

  • Each player (and their families) will also have a 15-minute meeting with coaches sharing important life principles encouraging good sportsmanship and character.

  • Players will still receive a full uniform (including shorts)  and unique Upward gear.

  • There will be NO EVALUATIONS and NO SATURDAY GAMES.​ 

  • Masks will be required for our fans and attendees of practices/games. However, players, coaches, and refs will not be required to mask during the active portions of practice and games. If we receive different guidance from the CDC or local authorities, we will be thrilled to relax the mask requirements for everyone.
