Upward Cheerleading is a ministry designed to use cheerleading to teach each child about SALVATION, CHARACTER, and SELF-ESTEEM as they learn team skills.

Upward Cheerleading for Basketball and/or for Flag Football is offered for players in Pre-Kindergarten (age 4 by September 1 of that school year) through Grade 5. Many participate from around the community. You can learn more about Upward Sports at Upward.org.

We offer Upward Cheerleading for Basketball in the Winter and in the Spring for Flag Football. At First Baptist Oviedo, squads will be divided by grade depending on the number of registrants. Squads DO NOT practice during the week, but only practice directly before each of their games. Pre-K squads practice for 30 minutes and cheer for 30 minutes, Kindergarten through 5th Grade squads practice for one hour then cheer for a game, all on Saturdays. The season will include 6-8 games as the schedule permits. All league events will be at Lawton Elementary School across the street OR in the Christian Life Center gym here on campus.
