Upward Logo stating Every Child is a Winner.

First United Methodist Church is beginning it's 15th 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.
