Default Let's go Upward - the DCT for Jan 15th

Churches across the US (and many countries around the world!) are alive and running this morning. Can you hear it? The sounds of basketball players running up and down the courts, the crowd rooting them along and what's that? Yep, its cheerleaders cheering.

So, what is Upward? Upward Sports is a first-class sports experience that emphasizes healthy competition, sportsmanship, skills building and fun versus the “win-at-all-costs” mentality found in many children sports leagues. Currently, more than 550,000 children (K5- sixth (or 8th) grade) participate in Upward Sports leagues. For over 15 years, Upward Sports has been conducting exciting children's sport leagues and camps in the US and around the world. (Upward Sports - Providing the best sports experience for every child)

Checking out Upward Sports - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia -
Upward Sports is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Spartanburg, S.C., U.S.A. A Christian sports league designed for kids in grades K5 – 6, Upward Sports offers four sports programs—basketball, flag football, soccer and cheerleading as well as ball hockey in Canada.
Founded in 1995 by Caz McCaslin, Upward Sports' programs are designed to be both competitive and fun. According to their website, Upward Sports seeks to provide children with "skills for the sports arena and values for life." While training children with the athletic skills needed to participate at the next level, Upward Sports stresses biblical values—such as leadership, teamwork, integrity and respect—as much as winning.

Historical Highlights
1986 - Caz McCaslin developed a basketball program that incorporated athletic skills and values for success on and off the court—including sportsmanship, teamwork, integrity and respect for authority
1994 - McCaslin's church reached the maximum number of athletes that could participate by outpacing the gymnasium's capacity (despite a renovation); a waiting list was created
1995 - Launched first nationwide season of Upward Sports when seven churches hosted Upward Basketball Leagues with several hundred players
2000 - Expanded to include soccer and basketball cheerleading
2003 - The 1,000th church hosted an Upward Sports League
2005 - Added flag football and flag football cheerleading. Launched first Upward Sports international league in Cape Town, South Africa
2006 - More than 400,000 children participated in Upward Sports for the first time. Launched the first Upward Sports League in Canada
2007 - International expansion continued as a league launched in Ukraine
2007 - Military scholarship instituted for children of military men and women deployed overseas
2008 - First South American league launched in Brazil
2009 - Some 2,600 churches worldwide host Upward Sports Leagues with 520,000 children and 480,000 volunteers, coaches and referees in 46 states and four countries (Brazil, Canada, South Africa, Ukraine)


Have a great day everyone!
