Upward Sports

First Baptist Church Garland has been offering Upward Sports programs since 1997. It has been a blessing to see the positive impact these programs have had on families in our community. As the world's largest Christian sports league for youth athletics, Upward Sports is focused on developing the total athlete and creating individuals with strong character, confidence, and spirit. 

We are always looking for volunteers to help us as coaches, referees, and more. If you would like to volunteer with us, please call us at 972-276-5273.
