Upward Sports

Garden Lakes Baptist Church Upward Sports
...where every child is a winner!
Upward seeks to develop the self-esteem of each participant, while teaching respect for authority, sportsmanship, character, and fundamental sports skills. One of the purposes of Upward is to share the love of Jesus with each player, coach, official, and family.
Upward is a sports ministry specifically designed for boys and girls that enhances the self-esteem of each participant while teaching respect for authority, sportsmanship, character and athletic skills. Each child is given equal playing time and emphasis is placed on sportsmanship. Additionally, at each practice, the coach leads his or her team in a short devotional time which includes Scripture memory. In this league, every child is a winner!
Upward is one of the most exciting sports programs in the country. Designed to promote community participation and to develop volunteer leaders, Upward uses something as simple as sports to strengthen life values. Garden Lakes Baptist Church offers Upward soccer in the early spring.
