Upward Basketball

Millions of young athletes have participated in Upward Basketball leagues across the country.  FBCW has been partnering with Upward Sports since 2009 to host a winter basketball league that offers an extended, multi-month opportunity for team-building, player development, and the formation of deep relationships between teammates and coaches.  In Upward Basketball, players will develop a love for basketball and a healthy competitive spirit and discover skills necessary to excel both on and off the court.

Here are some important dates and pieces of information that you need to know…

COVID Modifications

Divisions

Due to Covid, our League capacity will be reduced this season. This year's divisions are (with the maximum number of players in parentheses):

K5 Coed (32)

1st/2nd Boys (48)

1st/2nd Girls (32)

3rd/4th Boys (48)

Age divisions are limited to a specific number of teams, and once those teams are full, registrations for that age group will be placed on a waitlist.  We will only be able to process kids off the waitlist in a full division if we have another division that did not fill up.
