UPWARD SPORTS  Royal Redeemer can provide your K – 8th grade student with a great sports experience through practice, game days and end of season tournaments. We are part of the Northern Cincinnati Upward Sports Partnership which includes over 10 churches to host flag football, basketball and cheer.

We understand that with youth sports parents and athletes want a league that has offers fun, healthy competition, good coaching and a positive environment where they can discover, develop and perform at their highest level. We have developed a coaching culture that teaches fundamentals of the game, instills sportsmanship, is organized, aware and detailed and helps instill a competitive spirit no matter what level of play. Coaches understand that there are many life applicable lessons that can be taught while participating in a sport because we are all part of a bigger picture and plan.

Registration for the basketball and cheer season begins September 1 each year with practices starting just after Thanksgiving and games January through February. Registration for the football and cheer season opens each year in May. To register for any of the programs you may visit the league website
