‪If I could give ZERO stars I would. At this point we will never take our son here or play for any organization that plays against Upwards Star Center again. We understand that this organization is church based, and that is very rewarding for most, but the judgmental "Christians" who work here are astounding. We are an LGBT family and are proud of who we are. We have come to Upwards and played against them many times with all of their stares and sideways glances, but just brushed it off. We signed up for "training" and went once because they would NEVER call or email us back with a schedule for him to continue. We went to tryouts a week ago for our son to play on their AAU basketball team as our basketball trainer from Greenville had suggested and NEVER heard back from them, even though they stated at tryouts that we would hear from them, "One way or another". It is sad that we as a family, have to go to a Greenville organization just so that this "Christian Organization" can continue to only accept non-LGBT players and trainees. Our money and time are the same as every other player/trainee and we do not appreciate, AS CHRISTIANS OURSELVES, the judgmental atmosphere that this organization represents. Unacceptable and condemning in a place where you should be showing acceptance and motivation to all, as you are portraying to be "CHRISTIANS"....‬

‪My son does velocity at upward and we have seen good improvement in his sport of choice so much so that we signed up for the personal training. Now call me delusional, but when I pay someone for a service I believe we have entered into a contract. Inferred in this contract is they would provide the space for effective training. Today though the entire area was being used by a baseball team who was there for the first time. When we arrived the coach asked me if they were in our space because they were using more than they had rented, I thought and said I didn’t think so because we pay for private lessons. How wrong could I be?? Next thing I know my son is doing his private lessons next to a basketball court that a game is being played on. Of course players were entering and leaving the court disrupting his training. How effective can that be?
Velocity comes across as a training program that has the kids development as its number 1 priority, but today I realized that not to be the case and now find myself questioning their business ethics. When we asked to talk to the director we were told he couldn’t because he was preparing for the next class. What about the long term customer getting shuffled to the side for the almighty buck from the 1 time team using more space than they had rented? I have come to realize that it is rare in this world to find a business that will say what it will do then do what it promised. I find this hard to take though when the business sacrifices my son to achieve its goals. As many other reviews have stated here, a nice facility but they over book it and once you have paid them they are looking for the next customer. I give it three stars because his abilities have improved, but now have the dilemma can I trust them when there motives so onviously don’t align with mine‬

‪Such a stunning location, beautiful inside and out. But the staff - especially the upper management and directors - are incompetent to the point of being dangerous. Many families with older children and teenagers have left and will no longer get return.‬

‪Great facility, excellent staff and lots of things to do. Number of basketball courts was unreal. Conference rooms / facilities are excellent. I recommend a visit here. ‬

‪I would not recommend holding a volleyball tournament at this facility. If I had the choice, I would not attend another tournament at this venue. We were here for a Volleyball Tournament in May. We attend volleyball tournaments all across the southeast. The things that make or break the weekend are cost, convenience, parking, concessions, play space and general facilities. The Upward Stars Center fails in every area except cost which was average. However, they only accepted cash for admittance. This is the first tournament I have ever attended that didn’t have the ability to take a credit card or debit card transaction. It was very inconvenient.

Parking was ridiculous. When we arrived, there were zero parking spots available and people were resorting to parking down by the main road (and anywhere they could find a bit of asphalt-blocking the roads). It’s one thing to have a long walk from the parking lot- but in this case there was literally no place to park. We had to drop our child off and circle the lot for about 20 minutes waiting for someone else to leave. I guess the good thing is that the lack of parking is free.

The main facility was warm and cramped. You could not access the spectator seating without walking across several courts. Honestly this is unacceptable for players. If you don’t have the space for 12 courts then don’t run 12 courts. It was also very warm and humid inside. They had very limited concessions. This is an issue because at a tournament you might be at the facility for 8 hours. They don’t allow food to be brought in. Some teams brought canopies and tables to set up outside-but with 90-degree temps I don’t consider this a viable alternative. Keeping food safe and fresh for 7-8 hours or longer in those temps isn’t safe. Either let people bring food or provide HEALTHY food options for athletes. Hot dogs and popcorn and mini donuts are not enough for spectators and not appropriate for athletes. My husband pointed out however that the concessions they did provide cost less than at other venues. They did have acceptable bathrooms at the main facility.

Our second day of the tournament was at the Upward Stars Volleyball Center. This venue should absolutely not host any type of tournament. This facility is old and dirty. It was unbelievably hot inside. One mom from our group had to leave as her heart condition makes it dangerous for her to be that hot for that long. We were miserable as spectators and it was worse for the kids. The courts are cramped together and again seating is impossible to access without walking on the courts. My mother is in a wheel chair and she could not have accessed several of the courts at all. They had very limited seating and the only concessions beyond chips and soda was Little Caesars Pizza they brought in. There were 3 bathroom stalls -so there was always a line. The employees were trying their hardest here but there were not paper towels or toilet paper and the toilets were having trouble flushing. I’ve never been so happy to finish a tournament in my life.

I try to keep my reviews as objective as possible. But honestly this was a miserable weekend for all the reasons listed above. To be fair-The Upward Starts Center is a decent facility it just isn’t really the correct venue for a volleyball tournament. It is like a nice YMCA and would be a great practice facility if they can get the temperature controlled.‬

‪My wife and I came here to see our niece play in a volleyball tournament. Very impressive. Great Location with easy access to the facility. Nice parking and the main building was very clean and organized with multiple matches being played at he same time. Staff was friendly. We enjoyed the experience.‬

‪My grandsons have played AAUnbasketball and done velocity training there. I really enjoyed the Adidas Gauntlet tournament and seeing top basketball players in the nation. My only complaint is the price of admission for tournaments is too high for senior citizens.‬

‪What a great multi-use facility. We spent 3 days here for a volleyball tournament. They have top notch staff, the facility was clean and the event was very well organized. Hope we get to come back here again soon!‬

‪Lots of parking & easy to find. Very attractive sporting center with friendly staff. Only a 4 star rating because the final day all the bathroom stalls were not stocked with toilet paper.‬
