Upward Sports has had a positive impact on my son, AJ John. He had his first opportunity to play in Upward Basketball at age 5 and has been an avid basketball player ever since. Now, he is 17 years old and plays for both the Oakland Soldiers in AAU and the Maria Carrillo High School varsity team in Santa Rosa, California. After receiving several Division I basketball college scholarship offers, he has accepted a full scholarship to Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. He is a young man of great character, and we are so proud of him. Upward Sports has made a difference in my son’s life.
