Upward is a different kind of sports league where we strive to ensure that every child, regardless of their ability or skill level, works toward reaching their potential as an athlete, and as a person. By providing a fun sports experience based on healthy competition, Upward Sports Leagues help kids develop skills for the sports arena and values for life. Upward Sports uses the universal language of sports to connect with kids at a critical age and help them discover and build athletic skills, values, self-confidence and a life-long love of the game.


At Upward Sports, families matter. Our Eastland leagues give families all the benefits of participating in team sports while protecting them from hectic travel schedules and the win-at-all costs mentality that burns out young athletes. With just a one-hour practice and one-hour game each week, our leagues conveniently fit into busy family schedules. At practice, players learn the skills necessary to play their sport, learn how to act as a team, and participate in a devotion time that will teach them about God. Throughout the season, all players receive an equal amount of playing time and an equal number of starts. At each game, every player receives a game day star, highlighting an are in which they excelled.


Every child is important and is treated with dignity, care, and concern. Every child is encouraged to reach his or her potential. Every child has the opportunity to play, to achieve, to learn, and to develop.
