Who’s got next? You do.


UP offers 3-on-3 pick-up basketball for boys & girls ages 12-15.

No coaches. No refs. No problem.

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 and access to academic & career mentorship all included.
