Upward Basketball

During half time of the Lady Tigers basketball game, the crowd was treated to a game of basketball by the Upward players.

From the Upward website:

Upward, the world’s largest Christian sports program for children, was created with a vision to provide the best sports experience possible for every child. Each year some 1 million people around the world play, coach, referee, or volunteer in Upward sports leagues and camps hosted by more than 2,600 churches. Anyone – children and volunteers of any faith or no faith – can participate in Upward sports. Specifically designed for children in K5- sixth grade, Upward aims to bring out “the winner” in every child – regardless of the game’s score.

Here are some of the pictures from Tuesday nights fun.

Sounds like a program with many benefits for a wide range of people. Top photo: Did they make the basket?
