Lakers win Championship!
The Lakers defeated the Pacers 40-27 Saturday to win the first ever Level 4 Championship. The game was tied at halftime and still close after three quarters but the Lakers pulled away in the final period. The Spurs defeated the Thunder 44-40 in the consolation game. Congratulations to all players and coaches for a wonderful season!
Awards Night will be magical!
The Magic of David Garrard will be the featured entertainment for our 2015 Upward Awards Night. The celebration is scheduled for Sunday, March 1, 5:30 p.m. in the sanctuary of St. Matthews Baptist Church. EVERYONE is welcome! We will recognize our teams and cheer squads, thank our leaders and hear exciting news about the future of Upward. Players and cheerleaders should wear their uniforms.
In addition to his work at St. Matthews and with Upward, David Garrard has been entertaining with magic for almost 50 years! He has appeared extensively throughout the United States. In 2007 his magic kicked off Thunder Over Louisville! Click here to see David in action! http://youtu.be/0YiMlyealx4
(We will be finished by 7 p.m.)
Give away your shoes!
Every year our league tries to do something to help kids who are less fortunate than we are. We have sent kids to camp, bought water treatment systems and purchased mosquito nets. This year we are going to make a gift of shoes to the Neighborhood House in the Portland area of Louisville.
If possible, we want you to give the shoes your kids have played or cheered in– most of which will be gently used and will be too small to wear next year. Here’s how it will work. Bring the shoes to Awards Night. As you arrive there will be a station where you can tag and bag your shoes. That’s it! We will deliver them to NH the following week.
(We fully understand that not everybody will be able to give their shoes so please don’t feel any pressure to participate.)League Schedule Awards Night– Sunday, March 1, 5:30 p.m. featuring The Magic of David Garrard Summer Camp– June 22-25
