FOPC hosts an Upward Basketball® program for boys and girls ages K5 though 6th grade. Upward Sports™ is a positive sports experience that offers both parents and kids exactly what they want in a sports league. Parents love the family-friendly schedule, welcoming environment and coaches who teach the sport without yelling. Kids love the fact that they get to play or cheer every game, make new friends and have fun learning new skills.
