Winning is about so much more than the final score. 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 500,000 children (K5- sixth grade) participate in Upward Sports leagues. For over 14 years, Upward Sports has been conducting exciting children's sport leagues and camps in the US and around the world.

We would love to have you on our team! Whether you want to play basketball, soccer, flag football or cheer, Upward Sports has a league or camp near you.
