Upward Logo stating Every Child is a Winner.

First United Methodist Church is beginning it's 14th season of partnering with Upward® to bring its basketball program to the greater Princeton area.  Cheerleading was added to our program for 2010 with wonderful results!  Upward is open to all children from 5 years old though 8th grade. It continues to be our hope that our program shows that sports can be a positive experience for all participants and that truly Every Child Is A Winner.


You may find current Upward news and info below. Any additional information concerning this season of basketball and cheerleading will be posted here as it becomes available.


Please contact Brandon Roland (304-425-0064) for any information concerning our Upward Sports program.
