Upward Basketball at new hope

As a part of our effort to minister to your whole family, New Hope provides an organized Basketball league for children in 1st-6th grades. We have partnered with a nationally recognized organization called Upward Sports whose goal is to promote the discovery of Jesus through sports. Upward provides New Hope with the organizational structure and resources necessary for us to host a quality sports league while still allowing participants to have equal amounts of playing time and instruction. Today, approximately half a million players at more than 2,000 churches in 47 states participate in camps, clinics, and leagues through Upward Sports.  For more information on the Upward Sports organization please click here.  New Hope provides this ministry at no cost to families but donations are accepted and greatly appreciated! Check out the video below to get a glimpse of what it's like!
