The registration link is:

Games in this league will be played full court with the presence of a PIAA referee (or two volunteer referees). Tournament games will have two referees per game. 

Every team will play 7 regular season games plus an end-of-season tournament. We are starting the league towards the tail end of the elementary travel basketball season but will try to finish up before outdoor sports begin. We are allowing 3rd graders who played for their school team to play in our 4th-grade division. Besides the 3rd graders, we will not allow any players to play up this season.

The cost will be $95 plus an optional $14 for shorts. There is also a sibling discount of $15 per child. If the sibling participated in the k-3rd grade basketball and cheerleading league, please enter the sibling discount code SIBLING24 when registering. Scholarships are available for those in need, please contact Upward League Commissioner Justin Miller at


Jerseys sizing Shorts sizing

Jerseys run a little big and the t-shirts run a little small. Coach shirts this season also run a little small. Also attached is the uniform design for the season. 


Instead of an evaluation day like we’ve done in our K-3rd grade league, we will be having MANDATORY evaluation nights which will be an open gym/scrimmaging concept on the following nights: 

  • 6th Grade - Monday, February 5th (6-7:30)
  • 5th Grade – Tuesday, February 6th (6-7:30)
  • 4th Grade – Thursday, February 8th (6-7:30)  

You MUST attend the evaluation night to play (your travel coach will understand). After the evaluation for each group, the coaches will be drafting teams. This is a concept that has proved successful in past seasons and in other Upward leagues to make the teams more competitive and balanced for older age groups. To accomplish this, we will not be allowing carpool links (except for siblings) or practice night exclusions. (If your child has a crazy schedule, please sign up to be a coach so you can pick your practice day and time) There will also be an initial coach meeting on Thursday, February 1st from 6-8 PM (coaches only). 


WE NEED COACHES!! Please let Justin know ASAP if you are willing to coach or be an assistant coach. We also know many of you have someone at your church (or maybe yourself!) who would be great at giving halftime devotions. Please feel free to pass along their name and contact information.  


  • The first week of practice will be the week of February 12th.
  • Teams will have an optional practice on Saturday, February 17th.  
  • The first game will be Saturday, February 24th.  We will start the games late morning and run into the evening depending on the number of teams to limit competing with other sports. 
  • Awards ceremony (last regular season game) April 13th.
  • Tournament will be April 19-20. Depending on the number of teams, games be Friday night, all day Saturday and possibly Sunday afternoon.  
  • This will give each team 7 games plus a tournament; therefore, guaranteeing at least 8 games for the season. 
  • No practice or games the week of Easter.
  • Unfortunately, there will be no snow makeup games
  • The Snack Shack will be open this season!
  • There will not be cheerleaders for this league.
