Basketball Program Schedule


Children quit playing sports, because they lose interest and are no longer having fun. Livestrong

Our Kids’ sport programs strive to change this pattern!

Sheldon Nusbaum

Upward Director

I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior when I was 11 years old. I am a graduate of Pillsbury Baptist Bible College with a degree in Business Administration and minor in sport coaching. God gave me the opportunity to play football, basketball and baseball at the college level. I am married to my wife Crystal and we have 2 daughters, Makayla and Megan. I serve in this ministry because I have a passion for youth and sports. I love to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through sports, and Upward gives me that opportunity. I have seen many children and adults come to Christ through this ministry and lives changed for the gospel. I serve because of my love for Christ, my love of sports, and my love for people. I am honored to be the League Director of Upward Sports here at Emmanuel.
