What is Upward?
Upward Sports is the world’s largest Christian sports league for children. Each fall, Bethany Baptist Church partners with Upward to provide a local youth Flag Football league in Salem. Other churches in Salem also coordinate Upward leagues in different sports.
Who can participate in Upward Flag Football?
Children who will be in K – 8th grade during the upcoming school year may participate in our leagues. Teams/leagues are organized by age and we generally have four – six teams in each age group. We will organize enough teams to fit the number of registered children in the program. However, our ability to organize and coach teams depends on the number of volunteers available to help us out. Please consider joining Upward as a volunteer coach or organizer. More information is below.
