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!

Ready to Register? Please keep the following in mind:

  • Registration is not complete and children will not be placed on teams until they have attended one of the skills evaluations listed above.
  • It is important to show up to as many practices and games as possible for the sake of the whole team and opposing teams to have equal playing opportunity. 
  • We will do our best to accommodate certain requests, but keep in mind with having a league average of over 200 children, it is not possible to meet all requests. 
  • If after you register, you decide not to play with us, please be sure to inform the league about your decision.
