Upward Basketball

Upward Basketball is a recreational program for girls and boys from kindergarten through 6th grade that teaches the fundamentals of basketball and gives children the opportunity to learn more about Jesus and grow in faith. Practices start the first week of January 2018. Games are every Saturday starting January 13 and ending on February 24. All practices and games will take place at the First Baptist Belton gym located at 506 N. Main St., Belton, TX.
