How much does it cost?

There is a discount of $50 for a 2nd child and $75 for each additional child.
My child hasn’t played basketball before. Will this league be a good fit?
Absolutely. We focus on teaching fundamentals, teamwork, and strength of character. Players of all skill levels will find that they are able to have fun, engage in healthy competition, and grow in their athletic ability.
How can I sign up?
You can sign up online right now!
What are Evaluations and why do you do them?
Evaluations are not try-outs. Every participant will be placed on a team regardless or experience of skill level. Evaluations simply allow us to gather information about the approximate skill level of each participant. This information is used to form balanced teams that promote fun and healthy competition.
Note: Kindergarteners do not need to attend an evaluation.
When are Evaluations?
Your child only needs to attend ONE of the following evaluations. You do not need to arrive at the beginning of the evaluation you choose to attend. Instead, you can arrive at any point during the allotted time.
• Thursday, October 21 from 6-8pm.
• Sunday, October 24 from 6-8pm.
• Monday, October 25 from 6-8pm.
When are practices and how long do they last?
Each team will be assigned a weekly 1-hour practice time slot. These 1-hour practices will occur on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, OR Thursday in the early evening. This means that your total time commitment for practices will not exceed 1-hour per week for each child.
If there is a day of the week when your child is unavailable to practice, then simply let us know when you register online and we will place your child on a team that practices on a different day.
Practices will begin on the week of November 29th, 2021. They will continue each week the final game on Saturday, February 12th, 2022 with a break between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
How many games are in the season?
In the 2021-22 Season, there will be a total of six games.
This is two games shorter than previous seasons because of the timing of the construction of the New Kids Building and Basketball Courts at Seabreeze. The price for this year has been dropped accordingly (from $175 to $125.) In future seasons, we plan to return to eight games.
When are games?
Games will occur on Saturdays and last for one hour each.
• Game #1: Saturday, January 8th
• Game #2: Saturday, January 15th
• Game #3: Saturday, January 22nd
• Game #4: Saturday, January 29th
• Game #5: Saturday, February 5th
• Game #6: Saturday, February 12th
Where will practices and games take place?
All Upward events take place at the newly renovated outdoor courts Seabreeze Basketball Courts!
Can my child play on the same team as his or her friend?
We cannot guarantee that two players (other than siblings in the same division) will be placed on the same team. However, when you register online you can use the "Carpool Link" feature to request for your child to be placed on the same team as one other player in your child's division. Players must mutually request each other for the Carpool Link feature to work.
What do you do if it rains?
If practices are rained out and your coach wants to reschedule then we will work with your coach to find a make-up time. If games are rained out there will be no official make-up games, but teams are free to arrange their own scrimmages. There are no refunds for rain-outs.
