Basketball and cheerleading for Kindergarten through 6th grade in Twin Falls, Idaho.


Basketball & Cheerleading

Kindergarten - 6th Grade

Upward Basketball strengthens young athletes - mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. This is accomplished by:

  • An evaluation system that promotes equal and competitive teams.
  • Establishment of a one-hour practice and game each week.
  • A substitution system for each team, allowing every child equal playing time,
  • Opportunities for every child to learn and improve their skills in the sport.

Every athlete:

  • Receives a full uniform,
  • An award at the end of the year
  • Individualized star awards after each game
  • Practice devotionals
