Waldron Ready For Upward Hoops Season


This Saturday, January 19 marks the beginning of Upward Basketball season for the Waldron Bulldogs. Upward is a faith-based sports program not solely focused on winning or losing. Every child gets to participate in the game and learn basic game skills and the values of sportsmanship. Upwards mission statement is “To serve Jesus Christ through sports.”

One person especially excited about this program is 3/4 grade Coach, Doyle Dickens. Mr.Dickens is a first-time Upward coach and is proud of this program and what it does for the children in the community. Coach Dickens had this to say about his team, The Owls, “The Lord has blessed me to be a coach for Upward Bound Basketball. I’m so proud of all of the hard work that my players have put into their practices. This Saturday at 3 pm will be our first game of the season. All games will be played on Saturday afternoon and take place at the Waldron First Church of the Nazarene gym. There is no charge to watch these games and concession will be available.”
