Upward Stars has the desire to impact athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.  This impact is seen both ON and OFF the court.  One way in which the OFF the court impact is accomplished is through team service projects.  Each team completes a service project together during the spring tournament season. 

Coach Catrice James and her 5th Grade Upward Stars Girls' Team recently volunteered with the YMCA and its Full Circle program.  Full Circle provides social and recreational opportunities to help children with special needs grow in spirit, mind, and body.  The Upward Stars' team members, along with some of their parents, helped Full Circle participants enjoy their first baseball game of the spring season.  There were plenty of cheers, high-fives, and smiles shared on the field!   

Members  of the 5th Grade Upward Stars' Girls' Team include:

  • Jadyn Alexander

  • Gabriela Foushee

  • Jenna Gicewicz

  • Anna Gobble

  • Emerson Ladd

  • Abigail Porter

  • Jadyn Sheats
