Hello Upward Families,

Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Upward Basketball Season at Trinity Baptist Church. Our Upward Lead Team worked extremely hard throughout the Summer and Fall to create a modified format for the league and an opportunity for our families to participate in the Upward ministry this season. However, due to the rising cases of COVID-19 this close to the proposed season start date and the inability to offer a safe environment and quality program for players, parents, and volunteers we felt that this was in the best interest for our community.

We know this is a disappointment for many of you and we share in your disappointment as well. We will deeply miss the joy and the spiritual growth that takes place each season. We will continue to keep all of our Upward Families in our prayers and look forward to the future of this ministry!

 

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.

Why Trinity?

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 Christian Davis for more information.
