Upward Cheerleading

What Is Upward Cheerleading?
Upward Cheerleading offers a break from the norm.  The primary focus of Upward is to develop the Winner in EVERY child, not just a few.  By keeping this goal in mind, all cheers performed will be used to encourage both teams on the court with positive uplifting chants, cheers, and routines.  Also, no squad will have a specific team it cheers for each week.  With these guidelines in place we are able to build a league that promotes salvation, character, and self-esteem in all who participate through keeping sportsmanship and competitiveness in proper perspective.
Our desire is to provide a positive sports experience for every child.
To do that we:
› Create a fun and competitive sports environment
› Teach Cheerleading fundamentals
› Teach life lessons from the Bible during practice huddles
› Have coaches who are focused on having fun, developing skills and building character

At your child’s first practice each cheerleader will receive:
Cheer top
Hair Ribbon
Car Magnet
