Registration underway for Upward programs
Trinity Standard -
TRINITY – Registration for the fourth season of Upward Basketball and Cheerleading hosted by Dorcas Wills Memorial Baptist Church is now underway for children in kindergarten through the sixth grade. Upward Unlimited is a unique sports program that focuses on teaching children the skills of the sport by allowing equal playing time no matter the skill level and by attempting to create teams with equal ability. Under the Upward Unlimited philosophy, every child is a winner. Registration forms are available at the church office and forms and registration fees can be dropped off at the church office or mailed to the church at DWMBC Attn: Upwards, P.O. Box 112, Trinity, TX 75862. The registration fee for either basketball or cheerleading is $60 which includes reversible jersey, T-shirt, individual awards after each practice and game, an end of season award, and more. Those who register before Aug. 14 will receive a $10 per player discount. In addition to all the gear, the children will participate in an one hour weekly practice beginning the week of Sept. 21 and one game per week on Saturdays for seven weeks starting Oct. 3. In order to have equal teams, basketball players are individually evaluated and placed on their teams based on their evaluation scores. The basketball evaluations will be held at the Dorcas Wills Family Life Center from 5-7:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 30; on Tuesday, Aug. 31; and on Thursday, Sept. 2. To speed up the evaluation process, registering prior to Aug. 14 is recommended. For more information about Upward Basketball and Cheerleading contact Charlie Robinson at (936) 594-3822.
