Elementary Sports

 

Fellowship Academy supports Upward Sports for our Elementary students through our ministry partners, Lake Arlington Baptist Church in Arlington/Kennedale and First Baptist Church-Mansfield in Mansfield. 

 

Upward Sports is a national program that has grown from just seven locations in 1995 to over 2,500.  No pre-established teams are allowed in these leagues, designed for boys and girls  (K5 - 6th Grade). Players sign up as individuals and are placed on teams after going through a very simple skills evaluation. Every effort is made for equal competition through balanced teams.  Every player plays equal time and will have the opportunity to start several games.
 
Upward is a unique league in many ways. All the coaches and referees are volunteers and work hard to make the Upward experience a rewarding one. Not only do they want to coach kids on the fundamentals of a particular sport, but also spend time a few minutes at each practice to go over an elementary truth of the Bible. Ultimately, the hope is that each participant (and family member) will see and feel the love of God in very practical ways.
