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 is offered for players age 4 (by September 1 of that school year) through Grade 5. Upward Cheerleading for Flag Football is offered for players age 5 (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 Spring 2013 will offer our first season for Upward Cheerleading for Flag Football. At First Baptist Oviedo, squads will be divided by grade and gender depending on the number of registrant. 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 Grade 5 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.
