CrossPointe Upward Sports Ministry

UPWARD Sports Pragrams at CPCC exist to connect communities, families, and churches for the purpose of promoting the discovery of Jesus Christ through sports.



UPWARD registration is closed, all divisions were filled by the first day!

There is a waiting list. 

Cheer registration is still open.

This season the UPWARD basketball ministry has been scaled back to 24 team. This has been done to ensure that the program held at CrossPointe is in line with the UPWARD goals, objectives, and coaching expectations—requiring an appropriate ratio of players to like-minded Christian coaches. 

The leadership team at CrossPointe also considers the UPWARD sports ministry as an extension of the church and believes that the program should not simply focus on the quantity of children in the program but the quality of instruction (both athletic-oriented and gospel-oriented) to the children in the program. As the qualified volunteer base grows, we look forward to potentially re-expanding our team numbers in the future. 

We apologize if this change has created any issues for you. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Hello Upward Parents, Coaches, Volunteers!


We are gearing up for another wonderful season of Upward Basketball & Cheerleading, and wanted to provide an update to all of the families and volunteers from last year of the upcoming season details.


First of all, there are going to be a few changes to this upcoming season, that we wanted to make everyone aware of beforehand.


1. Upward Basketball & Cheerleading will now be from KINDERGARTEN - 5th GRADE. (no more 6th grade)


2. Upward Basketball will be having practices ONLY on Tuesday & Thursday (no more Monday practices)


3. Upward Basketball this year will be cutting the # of teams that we have. We typically have 36 basketball teams, for this year we are scaling back and doing 24 teams. By having 12 less teams, this means that our league will shrink in size, and have 96 less players. 


So what this means for parents of players, our league is going to fill up very FAST, 192 spots are available for registration Kindergarten - 5th grade, which mean unfortunately not everyone who played last year will have a spot on a team this year. We are very sorry about this, not being able to accommodate everyone, however our league is very volunteer heavy, and last year we had a shortage of volunteers for coaches and refs, and gym support staff, which makes running the league very difficult when you don't have enough volunteers. So our goal for this year is to scale back, to a more manageable size while we restructure and reorganize the league and fill volunteer roles so we are properly staffed, with the goal of next year going back up to 36 teams and adding Monday night practices back in.


As an incentive we want to make a special REGISTRATION OFFER to any parent who is willing to volunteer as a BBALL or CHEER Coach, Assistant Coach, Referee, Or Gym Support (setup, cleanup, timer clock etc.).

If you are willing to volunteer in one of the roles mentioned above, you will be able to register 1 WEEK BEFORE regular registration signups, essentially GUARANTEEING your child a spot on a team.
