upward basketball


We host club level basketball teams for high school girls and boys. These teams are based on a tryout that occurs in February of each year. Players are invited to join the STARS team to play tournaments in and around Atlanta from March until June. AAU Nationals are always an option based on the teams performances during the regular travel season.

Upward Basketball is an exciting sports experience for boys and girls K5-6th Grade. Some of the unique aspects of Upward include an evaluation system that promotes equal and competitive teams as well as a substitution system which allows for equal playing time for all participants. All Upward Basketball is held at our North Campus Gym.
