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,
