UPWARD BASKETBALL & CHEERLEADING
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.
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).

The success of this program is because of the many volunteers who in some way, big or small, on the front lines or in the background, contribute their valuable time.
