Upward Sports Basketball, Soccer & Cheerleading

Upward Sports, the world's largest Christian sports league for kids, has become the place to play fun sports for over half a million families in the United States and Canada. Last year, nearly 550,000 K5 through sixth-graders had a great kids basketball, kids soccer, kids flag football or kids cheerleading experience through one of over 5,000 leagues and camps.

By providing a fun sports experience based on healthy competition, Upward Sports Leagues help kids develop skills for the sports arena and values for life. Upward Sports uses the universal language of sports to connect with kids at a critical age and help them discover and build athletic skills, values, self-confidence and a life-long love of the game. That’s why our youth sports leagues and kids sports camps provide them with the best sports experience possible!

At Upward Sports, families matter. Our leagues give families all the benefits of participating in team sports while protecting them from hectic travel schedules and the win-at-all costs mentality that burns out young athletes. With just a one-hour practice and one-hour game each week, our leagues conveniently fit into busy family schedules.

Upward Sports partners with over 2,600 local churches and this number continues to grow annually. Temple Baptist is pleased to partner with First Baptist Church of Lodi in providing a venue for Upward Sports basketball in January and February. We are also pleased to offer Upward Sports Soccer in August and September. For more information on the upcoming seasons, contact Joe Broesamle at (209) 369-1948 or joe@tbclodi.com or Steve Opp at (209) 369-1948 or steve@tbclodi.com.
