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.

Football Uniform

Cheer UNiform

Soccer Uniform

 We look forward to seeing you soon! 


After August 4– $100

If you will need financial aid this season, please send an email to and we can provide instructions to get your child registered for the fall season.
