Required Pre-season Orientation & Evaluation:  

First time Upward families and ALL 5th-9th Grade players must attend one basketball evaluation.  

Evaluations for 5th-9th grade players are now more in depth and will also require a mini scrimmage to better assess skill level and to help balance out teams yet provide a challenging atmosphere.  We know that for a handful of families this will require two evaluation nights and for that we apologize but we are looking for an exceptional player experience and feel that the more in depth evaluations will help prevent skill imbalances in teams. Come dressed to play ball! There will be start times instead of the drop in schedule we are used to. With a small over lap of the first group finishing up in the gym while the second group is registering and uniform sizing. Please note the very tight evaluation schedule and plan accordingly. 

Note: Parents wanting to try on uniforms may stop by at any time during the evaluations.

Volunteer Hours

We are asking that every player's family provide a minimum of two volunteer slots during the season.  There are all kinds of opportunities and a sign up will be avilable at evaluations.  Volunteer sessions range from set up, take down, running a clock, passing out flyers, helping with special events and much more.  This will truly make a huge difference in this incredible volunteer run league.  If you are interested in volunteering as a coach, assistant coach, leadership team members or general volunteer, please click HERE.
