Important COVID-19 Information for Upcoming Fall 2020 Seasons

Welcome to Upward at First Baptist Grove City! We want you and your family to have the best sports experience!

This season, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made several changes to our registration and evaluation process.

1.  We will not be accepting any payments at evaluations this year, so if you do not want to pay online with a credit card, you MUST mail or bring to the church your completed registration form and payment (cash, check, or credit card). Please do not bring unpaid registrations to evaluations, as we cannot accept payment at that time.

2.  We will not be using the sample uniforms for sizing.  Please see sizing charts below.  Uniforms tend to run a little small.

Cheer UNiform

Soccer Uniform

3.  Please do not bring extra family members with you to evaluations.

4.  We will have evaluations set up to maximize everyone's health and safety, and minimize the amount of physical contact.

 We look forward to seeing you soon!

In an effort to avoid large crowds at evaluations, we are asking you to attend an evaluation during a time based on your last name.  Cleats recommended.
We understand there may be uncontrollable circumstances and if you need to attend outside of the designated time for your name, we will not turn you away.
