Upward Basketball 2013

We are excited to announce that First Baptist Belton will be hosting Upward Basketball again this season. There are a few changes so please make sure you read all the following to make sure your family does not miss out on this ministry opportunity.



  • Cost: $80 per child
  • Registration Times: Tuesday, October 23rd and Thursday, October 25th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Pearl Street Foyer (near the gym). This is a new way to register for Upward, make sure you mark your calendars so that you do not miss the opportunity for your child to praticipate in upward this season.
  • At registration you will sign up for a time for your child to attend a mandatory evaluation. This also is a requirement in order to play Upward Basketball.


  •  Saturday, November 3rd, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
  •  Tuesday, November 6th, 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.


Grades: Because of the growth of the Upward Basketball Program, this year we will have teams for the following age divisions:

  • Kindergarten
  • 1st and 2nd grade boys / 1st and 2nd grade girls
  • 3rd and 4th grade boys / 3rd and 4th grade girls

Unfortunately, we will NOT  have a 5th and 6th division in order to accommodate for growth in the program and to make room for younger players.


  • Practice week begins the week of Monday, January 7, 2013
  • First Game: Saturday, January 19, 2013
  • Final Game: Saturday, March 9, 2013
