Upward Flag Football & Cheerleading

because life is more than a game.

Upward Game Days are a lot like the NFL experience—music blasting, players running through the tunnel out onto the turf field as their name is announced, cheerleaders and fans cheering.

But there is more to this league than meets the eye. We help players learn to love the game by teaching them how to play it well, but we place even more emphasis on sportsmanship, team play, building character, and having FUN. We want Upward Flag Football & Cheerleading to be an excellent sports experience for your entire family!

We choose to operate our league this way for one simple reason: Because life is more than a game.


  • Registration begins on or before June 1 and ends in mid-August.
  • Practices begin late August; our first game is in mid-September, and we finish in mid-November.
  • Upward is family-friendly! Practices are one night per week for one hour; games are mostly on Saturdays, with a couple of night games each season.
  • Our Fall League has three divisions: Division 1 (K-2nd grade), Division 2 (3rd-5th) and Division 3 (6th-8th).
  • Our Spring League is for players in grades 8, 9, and 10.
  • Upward is co-ed; girls have the option to play or cheer.
