We look forward to our 16th season and we are truly excited about partnering with families across Southern Brazoria county to make Upward the best sports and family experience it can be! Upward Basketball is a sports program held each fall/winter for children in grades 1-6 who live in the Lake Jackson/Brazosport area. Our Upward program began in 1998 and now runs nearly 400+ children in the league each season. It features separate basketball leagues for girls and boys, equal playing time, a positive, child-focused competitive atmosphere, recognition for all players, and a special Awards Program at the end of the season. For more information about Upward Basketball at FBC, contact Brad Dawson at (979) 297-2496. For information about the national Upward Unlimited ministry, visit their official website at:
