  • Why do the cheerleaders not cheer for a specific basketball or flag football team each week?
    Because cheers are meant to encourage all players, squads rotate the teams they cheer for throughout the season.

  • How do I fluff the cheerleader poms?
    • Place one pom in front of you with the baton handle parallel to your legs, and begin with the strands on one side of the baton.
    • Firmly pull one pom strand to the right and the next pom strand to the left.
    • Alternate right and left until you finish all of the strands on one side.
    • Complete the other side of the pom, and repeat sequence with second pom.

  • Why does Upward Cheerleading not incorporate stunting or tumbling as part of the program?
    We would like to ensure your child’s safety by only allowing activities that the participant and coach are comfortable with doing and to prevent injuries.

  • What does Upward Sports believe?
    The Upward Sports Program was founded on the following beliefs:
    • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative, Word of God.
    • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
    • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
    • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
    • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
    • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment.
    • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
    Each church partner conducting an Upward Sports League or Camp has agreed to this same set of beliefs which can also be referred to as a Statement of Faith.
