Upward is an evangelistic sports ministry specifically designed for boys and girls four-years-old through sixth grade. Emphasis is placed on “Christlikeness” and good sportsmanship—not championships and trophies.

Upward seeks to strengthen children and their families by:
  • Maximizing the family schedule by having only one hour of practice and one game each week,
  • facilitating an atmosphere of sportsmanship by not keeping league rankings,
  • allowing the coaches to focus on ministering, instead of game strategy,
  • by having a set substitution system that allows all players equal playing time,
  • and by maximizing ministry opportunities by exposing participants & spectators to Scripture-based halftime devotions.

Friendswood Methodist offers three Upward sports programs:
  • Fall Flag Football (with cheerleading)  
  • Winter Basketball (with cheerleading)
  • Spring Soccer

Upward Flag Football/Cheer Registration opens July 6, 2020.
If you have a Kindergartner thru 6th grader we would love to have them join us this flag football/cheer season. We believe youth sports can be played in a fun environment where children learn the game, develop their skills, experience teamwork and learn life principles that will apply both on and off the field.
Registration fee is $100.00.
After August 20th fee will be $120.00,
