In case of inclement weather, The Upward leadership decides if we are to cancel due to inclement weather. Our policy is, when Manheim Township School is cancelled, dismisses early, and/or cancels evening activities then Upward is cancelled at both locations. For Saturday games we will use our best judgment. Cancellations will be posted on WJTL, WGAL and an email will be sent out to parents and coaches. There are no makeup days for practices. March 23 and 24 are makeup days for games if we need them.

Game Day Volunteers Needed
Every year Upward reaches over 300 children and their families. As a volunteer, you are giving much more than just your time and energy. Together we are preparing athletes to succeed in the game and in life.
There are many ways to volunteer with Upward and they all are essential to running a successful program including helping with the Snack Shack, greeting/hospitality, scoreboard, and halftime devotions. We are asking that each parent volunteer at least once over the 8 weeks of games. Thanks so much for your commitment to your children and this program.
