  • Upward Rec Cheerleading

    Cheerleading is a huge part of sporting events at all levels of play. When athletes need encouragement and fans need entertainment, cheerleaders can take your sports experience to another level because they add excitement and spirit to any Upward Game Day! Through our 360 Progression, Upward Cheerleading programs aim to develop each athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. Each league and clinic is focused on teaching cheer skills and the foundations needed for the next level of cheerleading. We offer cheer in the spring months during the flag football season.
