UPWARD SPORTS is dedicated to recognizing that "Every Child Is A Winner." In doing so, every child receives an award following each game to recognize a positive contribution he or she made that day. All children who participate also receive a special award at the end of the season during an awards ceremony. UPWARD SPORTS participation success is attributed to placing an emphasis on the fact that children love to play. They don't have to necessarily win to have fun, but they do have to participate. By creating a fun environment and an equal opportunity for all to participate then Every Child Becomes A Winner! Changed hearts and lives are seen in both those who play the sports programs and those who administer the league.
