Who’s got next? You do.


UP is 3-on-3 pick-up basketball for boys & girls ages 11-15 without refs or coaches. Since 2013, UP has (on a non-profit basis) brought together young ballers from different neighborhoods for fun, call-your-own fouls games. Healthy snacks, guest speakers, kool tees, and access to tutors & mentors are all included.

The purpose of UP is to bring kids together. The goal of UP is give kids academic & career opportunities via sport. As our t-shirts say, it’s all about: “Pushing Forward. Reaching Back.”


On October 25th, UP had its biggest event ever: 70(!) kids, 2 gyms, 6 youth facilitators, and a 6’-high stack of pizza boxes! Thanks to U King’s College & Dal for hosting.
