Longbranch Community Church is sponsoring Upward Unlimited a national children’s sports program designed to give children and their families a positive sports experience

Upward Unlimited partners with local churches to promote character, self esteem, and salvation through sports ministries. This will be the first Upward Basketball league in the area.

Longbranch Community Baptist Church will implement Upward Basketball this winter.

The purpose of Upward Unlimited is to recognize the winner in every child by offering a non-competitive, non-threatening environment where every participant gets equal playing time.

Registration is open to kids kindergarten through sixth grade, and begins this month. For more information call the church at (972) 723-6442.
