The driving purpose behind Upward Sports @ FBCO
is a desire to help young athletes:

“To Play With Purpose means you make smart decisions, improve in your physical development, discover your life's purpose, put others needs before your own, and learn more about becoming a follower of Christ. It's more than just the game. It's every practice, every drill, every pivot, every pass every shot and Every Prayer. Become more than just an athlete”

    - There are many children who play Upward Sports across the United States of America whose mother or father serve in one of the branches of the military. Some of these children have been without their mom or dad for many months or even a year, because their parents are serving our country. As a small way of saying thank you to those who serve, Upward Sports has decided to cover the player kit cost for any and every child who has a parent or legal guardian who is currently deployed overseas and away from home and will miss more than half of the games during the season. Thank You for your Service, from everyone at Upward Sports and First Baptist Church O’Fallon.
