PARENT COMMITMENT Upward can only happen through parent involvement and support. We need your help! Please be prepared to support the league in some way … we need good coaches, referees, practice volunteers and gameday volunteers – and help recruiting others. Fill out a volunteer form, and one of our Upward Leadership Team members will contact you.
