2019 Season Information

Upward Half Time Devotions

We are in need of Halftime Devotional Leaders at each basketball game. It is easier than it looks. It is all written down for you word for word. The game, devotion, materials, and prayer are all given to you. You don't have to bring anything as RRUMC provides it all. Do it alone, with your spouse, or as a family. It's all up to you. You DO NOT have to be a member of our church to help out, just have a love for Jesus that you want to share with the people around you. (view 2019 devotions)

Upward Concessions 2019

Please think about signing up to help out at the concession stand this season for Upward. One of the easiest ways to help out and makes a huge difference to the program. Volunteers are what make Upwards run so smoothly. Thank you ahead of time for all that you do to help out. We know how precious time is and we are blessed to have your support.

Upward Mini-camps

Cost per participant is $55. Registration includes a t-shirt, basketball, and water bottle. Please note registration will be limited to 100 participants. Upward camps will include K5 to 6th grade.

Volunteer Opportunities

Upward Basketball and Cheerleading is successful due to the service of many volunteers. We are still in need of referees. Feel free to contact Jason Kraft for more information via email or phone.
