What is Upward?
Upward is a fun, reliable, passionate and encouraging sports experience for boys and girls, in Kindergarten through sixth grade. Upward provides first class, organized and detailed sports programming in basketball and cheerleading at Trinity Baptist Church. Unique aspects of Upward include an evaluation system that promotes equal and competitive teams as well as a substitution system which allows for equal playing time for all participants.
Through Upward, children are exposed to quality coaching and sport development. Upward emphasizes character and integrity instead of a “win at all costs” mentality associated with today’s sports world.
Upward Basketball and Cheerleading at Trinity Baptist Church began in the fall of 2004. The program is lead by Rev. Spencer Good and a highly dedicated Upward Lead Team. Every member of this Lead Team as well as all coaches, officials and administrators are all volunteers.
Each year we offer basketball and cheerleading beginning practice in November and concluding with our Celebration Night in late February. Our mission is to deliver a rewarding and enriching experience for all of our parents, coaches, volunteers and especially our children.
This ministry is always open to individuals who wish to be involved, please contact Rev. Spencer Good for more information.
