My daughter loves to play volleyball but after her first season playing for her school I noticed she lacked confidence.  She began Upward and within the first month she improved in every aspect of volleyball.  Maddie is very kind hearted and didn't play with aggressiveness therefore she didn't play to win.  Now she understands that being agrresive isn't disrespectful especially if you're thoughtful and kind to the others players on both teams.  As a parent, I've watched from the sidelines how this program has helped Maddie in more areas than just volleyball.  The leadership is so positive and encouraging. The coaches are supportive and really go out of their way to teach while making sure each player feels important and equal. I encourage any parent who wants their child to be a part of a positive and Christian sports environment to think about this program.  My daughter walked through those doors for the first time as a mediocre athlete and now is a confident volleyball player ready to battle.  These coaches made her fall in love with this sport and now our entire family has become interested.  Most nights you will find all 6 of us outside battling it out.  Everywhere we go Maddie has a volleyball in her hand just in case she can find someone to hit with her.  I will forever be indebted for what this program has done or her. 

Thank you so much!
