Sorry we missed you for the current season!
Registration for the Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 Cheer Season Opens on June 1, 2019
Upward Cheer squads bring an enthusiastic, bright light to each and every Upward game! Encouraging players and firing up fans while making new friends on the squad is a great way to spend the basketball season.
Upward Cheer is open to Kindergarten thru 5th grade participants. Cheer squad members who sign up for the Fall session are invited back to cheer for the Winter session at no additional charge (aka FREE!)
Fall Session: mid October - mid December
Winter Session: mid January - mid March
When is practice?
Cheer squads practice for approximately one hour, one time per week -- day and time to be determined by the squad coach. Practice includes drills, learning new routines, and devotions.
What happens on Game Day?
The Upward season consists of eight Game Day Saturdays. The day begins at 8 a.m. and ends late afternoon. Cheer squads participate in TWO games -- cheering from halftime of one game to halftime of the next. Squad members arrive approximately 30 minutes before they are scheduled to take the floor for warm-up.
After the game, the squad enjoys a parent-provided treat and post-game devotions.
How can YOU help?
1. Prayer for Upward and all its participants.
2. Volunteer to coach a cheer squad -- training and instructions are provided. ALL Upward Coaches are fully vetted volunteers.
3. Sign up for snacks and assist as a squad parent.
