Upward Sports

KHCS Upward Basketball

Develop Skills. Strengthen Character. Have Fun.

We’re genuinely excited to have you here, and we’d like to share our heartfelt mission with you. Our foremost goal for this league is to create a special opportunity for both 4th-6th Grade students here at Killian Hill Christian School and the children in our community. We aim to provide a nurturing and supportive environment where your children can not only learn the fundamentals of basketball but also hear and be informed about God’s love and grace in the gospel. We firmly believe that sports can be an influential tool for personal growth, teamwork, and character development. By blending the teaching of basketball skills with the truths and principles of the gospel, we aim to offer an experience for your children that transcends the game itself. We’re looking forward to having you!
