Providing the Best Sports Experience for Every Child

Upward 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. We would love to have you on our team!

Why choose Upward? Currently, more than 500,000 children (K5- sixth grade) participate in Upward sports leagues. For over 14 years, Upward has been conducting exciting children's sport leagues and camps in the US and around the world.

How can I participate? Vandalia Nazarene is partnering with First Baptist Church of Vandalia to provide an Upward sports experience to the Vandalia Community. Vandalia First Baptist hosts Upward Basketball and Cheerleading in their "Hangar" building beginning in January. After Basketball and Cheerleading, Vandalia Nazarene is hosting Upward soccer on the fields in the back of our property.

Because winning is about so much more than the final score
