ABOUT UPWARD SPORTS
Providing the Best Sports Experience for Every Child

Winning is about so much more than the final score

Why choose Upward?

Currently, more than 500,000 children (K3 – 8th grade) participate in Upward sports leagues around the world. Since 2001, Wayside has been conducting Upward sports leagues. Upward emphasizes healthy competition, sportsmanship, skills building and fun versus the “win-at-all-costs” mentality associated with many sports leagues.

On top of equipping children with sports fundamentals needed to participate at the next level, some unique features to Upward are:

– Upward utilizes a unique substitution system which guarantees every child equal playing time.
– Upward aims to teach both athletic skills as well as values for success on and off the playing field/court.
– Upward prioritizes a family friendly schedule by conducting one-hour practices and games each week.
– With supportive coaches and a positive sports environment, Upward is designed to bring out “the winner” in every child regardless of the game’s score.

Best Youth Sports in Miami! From Basketball to Flag-Football, Cheerleading and Soccer.

In Christ,
