We are excited that you are interested in partnering with us this season as a coach for Upward Basketball. Our league is designed to be a place where players can learn about the game of basketball, sportsmanship and teamwork. As important as those things are, nothing is more important than these players also having the opportunity to learn about God’s love for them as well. The mission statement of Upward is “promoting the discovery of Jesus through sports.”

With that in mind, it is imperative that we have coaches that share that same vision as well. This process is in no way intended to be exclusive, but rather to help us ensure that all of our coaches have the same vision and mission while coaching.

If you could take a few minutes and please share with us more about your testimony.
