Upward Basketball & Cheerleading

Smiling Bethel People Needed

In early January, the 2013 Upward season will start here at Bethel. We currently have over 120 children registered and 12 basketball teams and 2 cheer squads are being formed. Of course, the Upward season will not be successful without the wonderful Bethel congregation. We are in need of volunteers to help greet, oversee practice nights, work the concession stand, and help set-up & cleanup on Saturdays. There are opportunities to work each Saturday, twice a month, once a month, or just once during the season – WE JUST LOVE YOUR HELP!!!

The season starts January 4 and ends March 9. We are looking for the following:

Practice Night Building Coordinator – Monday or Thursday night to open/close the building, ensure practices run on time, answer any questions & straighten up rooms.


Greeter – the friendly face of Bethel who assists families with questions/directions; monitor the lobby and other duties as needed (typically a 2 hour shift)
Concessions – staff the booth and maintain stock; may assist with set-up or clean-up (2 hours)
Audiovisual – run the AV system for the games; play songs/slide shows when needed (2 hours)
Set-up/Clean-up Crew – help on Saturday to adjust the court from half to full; clean the church rooms and FLC for Sunday worship (about 2 hours)

Thank you so much for considering any of these volunteer opportunities with Upward. We appreciate your continued support. Please contact Jennie Whetstone or Carolinda Belville with any questions or to sign up!
