Upward Sports

Upward Sports Logo

Upward Sports is the only organization that offers the 360 Progression™, a uniquely designed total sports experience that adapts and expands as players grow in their personal athletic journeys. The 360 Progression develops total athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially – producing players who excel both on and off the field.

FCBC offers Basketball and Cheerleading in the winter as part of the Upward ministry and Flag-Football with Cheerleading in the Fall. Upward volunteers are our church members and members of our community who come from all walks of life and are involved by praying for the program, coaching a team, refereeing a game, or sharing a devotion.

Upward programs are open to all members of the community regardless of their religious background.
