Our Mission: Promote the Discovery of Jesus Through Sports

No matter the sport or event, whether it is a youth volleyball camp, an Upward Stars Basketball travel team, or an adult soccer league, we at Upward Star Center are intentional about using the Gospel of Christ as the driving force behind every sports program. We are a team, passionate about using sports as an outlet to get our athletes to the next level on and off the court.

Our Values

The Expectation of God Moments
We believe that God is at work all around us.
Ephesians 2:10 – For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

The Life of Integrity
We believe that how we live is more important than what we say.
Galatians 2:20 – I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.himself for me.

The Opportunity to Serve

We believe it is a privilege to serve others.

Mark 10:45 – For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve,and to give his life as a ransom for many.

The Discipline of Excellence
We believe in exceeding expectations.
Colossians 3:17 – And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

The Priority of Children
We believe that Every Child Is A Winner.
Matthew 18:14 – In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.


The Upward Star Center is committed to giving back to our athletes as well as the surrounding community. We firmly believe that this is following the example that Christ has set himself. Service is a key element of growth and regardless of how old you are or what line of work you’re in, service can be applied anywhere. The driving force behind why we’re here is to give local coaches, teams, and organizations the resources and facilities necessary to enhance and develop athletes’ skills on the court/field as well as enriching their lives off of it.

Staff members and athletes alike are involved in numerous community events, charity organizations, and schools. We will continue to create, initiate, and implement service projects and activities to assist, support, and give back to our community
