Upward Sports at Geyer Springs
Promoting the Discovery of Jesus Through Sports
Upward Sports is an evangelistic sports ministry specifically designed for K5 through 6th grade boys and girls that promotes the whole athlete through: character development, self-esteem in every child and also the sports specific skills to play the game. Here at Geyer Springs, our goal is for players to be introduced to Jesus and be trained in their specific sport. In this program, every child plays! Check out the Upward Sports website at www.upward.org.
