Upwards Youth Basketball and Soccer

accordion open icon accordion close icon

AOC hosts Upwards Basketball every January-March, and Upwards Soccer every Fall. Upward Sports Recreation Programs offer a variety of opportunities for young athletes to discover and refine their athletic skills while cultivating a passion for the sport. Through age-appropriate team play, athletes begin to build positive character traits that will allow them to encourage, strengthen, and motivate themselves and their fellow teammates. As they learn and follow game rules, young athletes will also learn the value of sportsmanship with a healthy competitive spirit.
Upward Sports athletes experience the 360 Progression, which is a uniquely designed sports experience that develops the total athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. It is modeled in Luke 2:52 – “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” The 360 Progression helps young athletes discover and develop the skills they need to perform both on and off the field or court. It also creates individuals of strong character, confidence, and faith.

Team Captains Wanted

accordion open icon accordion close icon

All our teams are built around assigned team captains who believe in reaching the lost in the name of Jesus Christ through the fantastic avenue of sports and recreation. Be one of our team captains and play with a deeper and united purpose. Be more than a player!

Couple things to understand as you play and serve on the AOC team. First and foremost is submission to the league rules, then your onsite team captains/league officials. Beyond that, accepting this call I am going to boldly ask you for a couple of personal favors…

1. Be the light! Pray together as a team and let the world see before and even after the games. With and for one another, for the game, everyone’s health and open hearts. Shine brightly! (Matt 5:14)

2. Be inviting! Shaking hands with your opponents is simply a great opportunity to invite them all to come and find us at church, via other leagues, groups and of course, Sunday services. (Mark 16:15)

3. Be the joy! Whether on a great team, or a not so good team, always represent victory and competition with Christlikeness. Don’t sweat the small stuff, be that team that everyone likes to play, because it’s tough, fun and both #1 and #2! Athletes respect greatness, dignity and effort. Go get it! (Romans 15:13)

4. Be memorable! Take pictures! Help me share what we’re doing for prayer and awareness. Share stories with me, join up before or after games (be inviting!) and keep me posted! I want to share game results and photos every week after the games! (John 13:35)

Volunteer at a League or Event

accordion open icon accordion close icon

We can always use more help. Come and serve, meet great people, be inviting and shine brightly as His lights everywhere we go and play! Setup/cleanup is always helpful, food service is fantastic, planning and ideas are awesome, and simply being there to help take over nights for Chris when he can’t be there are all some various ways to just get involved, beyond playing! Contact Chris for more info!

You can also serve as an Upwards coach or referee for Basketball and Soccer, teaching and guiding the kids and families through the ministry. You can also volunteer to monitor at an ATX Ballers camp, tournament or clinic we're hosting.

Another great opportunity is to come and teach classes for the community, adults and youth alike with various sports. Currently we are teaching youth basketball and volleyball (youth and adults) based on requests.

Contact Chris Jahng for more information.
