Welcome to Upward Harford
Our culture has created a "win at all cost mentality" - most points, most trophies, most championships - generally defines a winner. Upward defines winning as learning and/or teaching lessons in the game of life. Parents, coaches and officials play a vital role in building the self-esteem and character of every child in this league. Players will look to their parents, coaches, and officials as models for sportsmanship, respect for authority, and positive attitudes. Together we can provide a lasting effect in these children that will last long after the end of the season.
Upward promotes Character and Self esteem in Every Child by:
Providing an evaluation system that promotes equal teams and opportunities
Teaching and promoting the "Circle of Affirmation"
Using a substitution system for each team, allowing EVERY child EQUAL playing time
Creating the opportunity to learn the skills of the game
Awarding special recognition awards after every game
Special player and team announcements at every game
Awarding EACH child an end of season award / gift
Registrations for the 2022 Upward Basketball Camp will open May 1, 2022 - July 11, 2022!!!
LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE!!!!
