First Baptist Hartselle’s UPWARD basketball & cheerleading league is for children ages 5 years old through 8th grade. Each week the participating children learn how to play basketball & lead cheers in a fun and God honoring way. During their UPWARD time, they will also memorize Bible verses and participate in activities that teach them to know, love and follow Christ. We always have a lot of fun learning these sports and getting to know one another in a loving, supervised environment. First Baptist Hartselle’s UPWARD league is held between the months of November and February. Practices are held weekday afternoons while the games are played every Saturday Morning in the First Baptist Hartselle Family Life Center.

The 2017 season is quickly approaching! Early registration ends October 13. Early registration cost for basketball and cheerleading is $95. After October 13, the cost is $105.

Everyone must attend one basketball evaluation or cheerleading orientation.
