Gallup Hill is about to begin our 17th season of Upward Sports. Last season we had over 160 kids come together to practice and play basketball in our gym and cheer from the sidelines. 


League Information

Gallup Hill's basketball league is for boys and girls in grades K-8.** Each child is evaluated on two evaluation days in the fall, and teams are divided up based on those evaluations. This helps us ensure that the teams are balanced. Each team is assigned a coach and practices on an assigned day and time during the week.  All games are played on Saturdays in the church gym.   

Our cheerleading program works with girls in grades K-8.** Cheerleaders are divided into two age groups and practice on Tuesday evenings. They cheer and perform at halftime during games on Saturdays.

The overall schedule that the league uses is as follows:

July - Skills Camp (dribbling, shooting, defending, cheering, etc.)

September - League season registration opens

November - Evaluations are held and teams are assembled

December - Practices begin

January/February/March - Games begin and practices continue

March - End of season tournaments and the closing ceremony 


**Please note the change in grade level registration requirements this year. The cut off for basketball and cheerleading is kids in grade 8 (this school year) and cheerleading begins with kids in kindergarten (this school year).
