Camp for Champs

Camp for Champs is a two-day sports clinic for children from kindergarten to 6th grade. Kids learn from coaches and athletes that have actually played their chosen sports and want to share the joy of the sport. Participants can choose from flag football, soccer, cheer, and basketball.

The camp is Thursday, July 12, and Friday, July 13, from 8:30 to 11:00. Cost is only $20 per child. Click here to register.

  1. Hi. I was wondering when coaches would be notifying the parents and players of times for practices and who the coaches were? Here it is August 22nd and haven’t seen or heard anything. I just wanted to make sure that I haven’t missed anything. Thank you.

    1. Hi Natalie:
      Thank you for your response. Games begin SEPTEMBER 9th. Coaches had their first meeting tonight and should have their team assignments by Thursday. Coaches may begin making contacts immediately. That gives two full weeks of practice before games begin. Our number of players and cheerleaders continues to grow. We are very excited about a thriving community of Upward sports families.

    1. Hi Rebekka:
      Saturday was our last “official” evaluation. However, in years past when an athlete couldn’t make our scheduled dates, we held individual evaluations so no child is left behind. I would suggest you contact our director, Kent Tucker, at 918-697-8846.
