Game On Sports

Welcome to Game On: Champions for Christ!

(Formerly Upward Sports at Christ UMC)

Christ United Methodist Church is sponsoring a NEW youth basketball and cheerleading program this year for children 4yrs old through 8th grade.  Formerly, Upward Basketball and Cheerleading, the new program is called Game On: Champions for Christ being organized and led by the same leadership team that led the previous Upward program at Christ United Methodist Church. The reason for the change is simply to decrease overall cost and support our local businesses while continuing to offer a high quality, instructional league to our Jackson area youth!  The program will continue to include Christian living principles while teaching your child the fundamentals of basketball and cheerleading. Our goal is for every child to have fun while learning about Jesus Christ, basketball or cheerleading in a safe and loving environment.
