UPWARD Sports at First Naz exists to connect communities, families, and churches for the purpose of promoting the discovery of Jesus Christ through sports.

Basketball & Cheerleading

The Upward Sports season begins each winter with Basketball and Cheerleading registration beginning in September and evaluations in early November.


Children in grades Kindergarten through 12th Grade are eligible to participate.


Practices are typically scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays in the Family Life Center Gymnasium.  Games are also in the Gym and are typically held on Saturdays and are held each week January through February.

UPWARD Schedule

Thank you for being a part of Upward 2019-2020! We hope you had a wonderful season. We loved having you.

Unfortunately we won't be holding our regular season this year due to Covid regulations. 

As a church we want to do everything we can to add life and value to your family. We know you have many events and activities  to choose from and many things to do, but we think you and your kids will love a few of the activities we have going on here at FirstNaz.
