about Upward

Upward gives kids a positive, Christ-centered environment to learn about sports and competition, along with biblical truth. First Baptist Rogers is excited to offer kids from kindergarten through fifth grade the opportunity to compete in various sports throughout the year. We offer flag football and cheerleading in the fall, as well as soccer in the spring months. Registration is $85.00 per child. To learn more about the ministry and history of Upward, please visit upward.org.

Flag Football

Our flag football program, a growing alternative to full-contact football, teaches young men the basic skills and concepts of the game. Through Christian coaching and teaching, we hope the young men taking part in flag football not only grow in their skills on the field but also develop as strong men of character.

Registration Opening 2020

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. Cheerleading adds excitement and spirit to any Upward game day. As young women grow in their cheering skills, we desire to help build them up as young women of character. 

Registration opens 2020.


Cheerleading is open to children from kindergarten (age 5) through fifth grade.
