2021-2022 Season Information

The Upward Sports’ Lexington Basketball and Cheerleading League’s 12th season for 2022 is just around the corner. After the year 2021 that we took off for Covid, we’re excited and ready for action to resume. Basketball is open for boys and girls in grades K-4th; Cheer is open for girls in K-6th.

We’re trying to treat this season as much as pre-Covid as possible. One new difference is that Upward will no longer have any paper brochures for registration. There are card stock information flyers that we will try to have the schools distribute the way they did the brochures in the past. However, unless you request a paper registration, all registration will be online.

Online registration is now open here
