Upward Basketball

The Our Shepherd Upward Basketball program is a Christian based youth sports program, for kids in kindergarten through fourth grade. We strive to develop the athletes mentally, athletically and spiritually in a safe, competitive and fun environment.  We welcome all kids and you don't have to be a member of the church or school to play.
