A sport enthusiast, Mason Bird spends his spare time volunteering for faith-based charitable organizations and other outreach programs. One organization Mason Bird has been actively involved with is the Upward Sports Program.
The organization’s Youth Sports Program aims to provide a place for kids to play sports with the hope of inculcating values for life and nurturing their athletic skills. Upward Sports believes that the universal language of athletics will teach the youth the concepts of self-confidence and teamwork, while encouraging healthy competition and life-long love for sports. Upward Sports also encourages parents and other family members to take part in the fun.
One of the largest Christian sports league for children, the organization partners with local churches to organize sports leagues and camps. People who wish to serve their community through the sports program can get involved as a volunteer or a coach. Together, the aim is for communities to take part in the total sports experience that the organization promotes.
