Why Upward Flag Football and Upward Cheerleading?
Football is a sport that many more children want to play, but are too young or not interested in the contact of tackle football. Upward Flag Football and Upward Cheerleading offer a break from the norm. The primary focus of Upward is to develop the Winner in EVERY child, not just a few. Upward Football and Cheerleading is offered by FBC Forney for eight weeks beginning in September.
