Who We Are

Established in 1995, Upward Sports is the world’s largest Christian youth sports provider. Upward Sports is the only organization that offers the 360 Progression™, a uniquely designed total sports experience that adapts and expands as players grow in their personal athletic journeys. The 360 Progression™ develops total athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially – producing players who excel both on and off the field.  Today, approximately 500,000 players and 120,000 leaders participate in Upward Sports Recreation and Performance programs each year. 

In 2012, Upward Sports created a Performance Division known as Upward Stars. This expansion provides opportunities for young athletes to further develop their athletic skills and participate in a higher level of competition. Upward Stars programs are for young athletes ages 8-18 that have the drive and intensity to perform at a high level of competition. Upward Stars programs are led by Certified Leaders in over 40 cities across the country.
