The Latest Washtenaw County Upward News: Check Back Weekly For Updates

  • On game day #8 we will be collecting diapers and formula as well as returning the baby bottles (even if they are still empty) to support Family Life Services. This is a great organization that we are able to come together as a community and support. Thank you!

  • This is game weeks 7 and 8 and the “new rules” go into effect this week.  This means that we will keep score in 1st and 2nd grade, stealing off the dribble is allowed in 3rd and 4th grade and full court press is allowed the entire game for 5th and 6th grade (as long as your lead is not more than 10 points.)  All the rules updates can be found HERE. 
  • DO NOT MISS THE AWARDS CELEBRATION Sponsored by Dance Xplosion on Sunday, March 23rd from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.  This is a great time with fantastic entertainment by Tim Hannig.   Every player receives a season ending award and it is a great way to end the season together.  Players are expected to get there by 3:30 and start getting in line.
  • Despite the white stuff outside your windows today, our summer basketball camp registration is now open!  Click HERE to learn more about our camps and register online today!

  • A HUGE thank you to our confirmed 2014 sponsors.  MVP Awards Ceremony Title Sponsor - Dance Xplosion, Full Court Sponsorships - AA Smiles, Molly's Sun Select and Probility Physical Therapy, All Star Sponsor Vision Community Church.  

  • Thank you also to our practice location facilities. Most offer the space free of charge to our league and a  couple offer a reduced rate to basically cover custodial fees.  Practices are held at Christ Our King (Saline), Huron Valley Catholic School (Ypsilanti), St. Luke Lutheran Church (AA), York Baptist Church (Milan), Knox Presbyterian (AA), and First United Methodist Church (Saline).  We are so very appreciative of the support all of the locations lend to our Upward Sports Ministry.
