Trinity UMC Upward Basketball and Cheerleading League

Since 2008 at Trinity UMC, Upward has introduced children from K5 to 5th grade to Christ through sports. Young basketball players and cheerleaders can chart their own athletic journeys through the years – all while being developed into total athletes mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially.
