Important information about our league

Evaluations: Every basketball player and cheerleader will be required to attend one of our evaluation days. These are not tryouts, but rather a way to assess a child’s abilities and help to ensure the teams are even. Our evaluation days are tentatively planned for Friday, November 16 from 5-8 pm and Saturday, November 17 from 1-4 pm.

Parents Meeting: The parents meeting will tentatively be held Tuesday, December 11 from 7:00-8:30 pm. This will give parents an opportunity to meet coaches and hear from our Pastor and Upward League manager. Uniforms will also be distributed at this time.

Practices: Practices will begin the week of January 2 . Practices could be Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night, starting at 5:15, 6:30, or 7:45 pm. Each team practices once a week. At registration, you may choose any day that does not work for you. We will do our best to accommodate any scheduling conflicts you may have.

Games: Games will begin Saturday January 12, 2019 and will be held each Saturday through March 2. Games are one-hour long.

Cheerleaders will cheer for one game each week.

Picture Day: We will have a picture day during the Upward season. You will have the option to purchase individual and team photos at that time.

Awards Celebration: Our end-of-the-year celebration will be Sunday March 3 form 2:00-4:00 pm at Great Neck Baptist Church
