The coaching staff is the face of the Upward Sports ministry for the children playing and their families. With just a basic understanding of the sport, we will provide you all the resources you need to be a successful coach within the ministry, including pre-season training, detailed practice plans, a coach’s book and app for your smartphone that will literally baby step you through the entire season, and more. The time commitment for a basketball coach is 2-3 hours a week from January through March with one weeknight practice and one Saturday game (8 weeks). Basketball coaches are required to attend one pre-season meeting in October/November that lasts 2-3 hours. All coaches must complete an application and background check process before being allowed to work with children. For additional information about becoming an Upward Basketball Coach, contact Jason Meinershagen at or 636-327-8696 ext. 260.
