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.
2016 -17 Registration
Registration for the 2016-2017 Upward Basketball and Cheerleading will be held on September 28 at 6:00pm. Trinity Baptist Church is currently beginning a major renovation to our Sanctuary, and our entire campus will feel the effects of this change. As a result of this renovation, the number of children we can register for basketball into the Program will be reduced this season. We anticipate accepting registration for all available basketball spots on Registration Day. Any attempt to register for basketball after Sept 28 will most likely be returned.
Non-Trinity Members: You must be present and register for basketball on Registration Day, however, attending this event, prior participation, volunteering to coach, or previously coaching in our program does not guarantee your entry into the 2016-17 Season. Registration Forms will be available for download on this page on Friday September 23, 2016. If you cannot attend this Registration, you may have someone in attendance register on your behalf. You can find more details on the link below. We anticipate accepting registration for all available basketball spots on Registration Day.
