Hi Upward Families,


Thank you for your patience as we have been working to develop a plan for the league. We are looking forward to the upcoming basketball season! 


As we prepare for the season ahead, a number of changes will be in place to provide the safest environment possible and comply with local and state regulations pertaining to the COVID 19 pandemic response.


Two main changes this year will be smaller team sizes and stable age group cohorts for practices.


This Saturday, September 26 will be our annual evaluation day. Evaluations are important because they help us to develop balanced teams.  We will be offering two options:


Option 1: You may RSVP to attend in person evaluation


In person evaluations will be held at Oak Park Christian Center Gym.

Your player has specifically been assigned to their age group time.  We are limited to the number of people who are allowed to be in the gym and group size per court.  Please have your child come at their assigned time. We are asking you to RSVP for each registered player.


Arrive 15 minutes prior to listed start time for check-in and screening. To limit numbers in the gym parents/ spectators will be asked to check in their player and then wait outside the gym for their child to complete the evaluation.  Player will be escorted to designated area for pick up.


Please complete the RSVP evaluation form below with uniform sizing whether you will attend in person evaluation or complete DIY virtual evaluation


The evaluation should take approx. 15-30 minutes.


Please wear a mask to check-in. 6 feet social distance will be maintained during check in and drills. Screening prior to participation at check-in. All coaches will be required to wear a mask or face shield, players will wear mask at parent’s discretion.


**Important note: Kindergarten Division does not need to complete skill evaluation but must complete RSVP form with uniform sizing.
