Upward Sports at LifeBridge

With great coaches and mentors, Upward Basketball and Cheerleading develops our young kids mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. Each January, the Upward season begins at LifeBridge, alongside more than a half a million players across 2,000 churches in the United States.



Registration Steps

  • Register. Early Bird Cost: $100 // After Nov. 1: $125
  • Attend one of the two player evaluation sessions on Nov. 30 or Dec. 1, which takes approximately 30 minutes.
  • Check your email for a welcome letter from LifeBridge Basketball and Cheer. Emails are sent out as needed or biweekly to families.
  • Like us on Facebook for pictures and updates!


Player evaluations are mandatory for all participants. Players will try on uniforms to determine which size they would like, fill out further information, and complete basketball drills. Players should wear shorts and athletic shoes. Information collected will help us place players in an appropriate division and on balanced teams.
