About Upward

We offer Upward Basketball, Cheerleading, and Soccer for children and youth. Upward emphasizes all-round development of the player mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially. The goals of Upward are to:

  • Promote character and self-esteem in every child;
  • Help players learn to make wise decisions;
  • Improve physical abilities;
  • Recognize and embrace life’s purpose;
  • Foster healthy relationships;
  • Allow each child to connect with God and others.

We are looking for volunteers with a passion for God and a love for children who are willing to invest 2 hours a week. Sign up to coach a soccer team, basketball team, cheerleading squad, or referee.

During the summer, we offer one week, half-day basketball and cheer camps. These camps enable participants to enhance their skills and continue the emphasis on developing the total person.

If you have any questions, please email Chris Rogers

Soccer Registration Is Now Open!

Registration is now open for the spring 2024 soccer season at MUMC! Please use the links below to sign up your athlete:


For returning players who do not need a uniform, the registration fee is $80. For new players or returning players who need a new uniform, the registration fee is $145. There is a $15 discount if you register by March 9. There are limited scholarships available. We ask that you volunteer as a coach or in the concession stand if you are the recipient of a scholarship.


We will not be doing evaluations for spring soccer. If you want to check sizing, please email me and make arrangements to do so.


For spring soccer, we typically try and keep teams together from the fall.  If you want to make a change, please make sure to note that in the comments during registration. As with fall soccer, we will have divisions for 3 year olds through 8th graders, and all divisions will likely be co-ed.


Practices will start the week of March 25. We will practice Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM. Your athlete will practice once per week.


The first games will be April 6, and we will play 7 games.  Our last game and the end-of-season celebration will be on May 18.

Please let Chris know at crogers@mumc.net if you have any questions.

We will need coaches!  If you are interested in coaching this season, please contact Chris Rogers.  First come, first serve for practice day and time!  Let us know your division, when you want to practice, and your team’s name.
