Volunteer Opportunities

We need volunteers for Upward Basketball! Just over 1000 people come through our doors every Saturday during the season, and many people are needed to ensure those days run smoothly! We need check-in people, people to clean between games, music volunteers, referees, scorers' table people, Celebration help, and those willing to help us set up chairs at the end of the day to be ready for service in the morning! Game days are Saturdays from January 4th through February 27th, 2020. Games start at 8:00am, and end around 5:30pm. You can volunteer for all of the day, or just part of the day! Even kids are welcome to help out! We can sign-off on high school honors hours for students who wish to volunteer.

I want to coach!
