Our Program

The New River Baptist Association (NRBA) has hosted Upward Sports for 19 seasons. NRBA represents 32 Baptist churches and serves the communities of Onslow and surrounding counties. 

Upward Sports is a Christian sports ministry that uses the sports of basketball and cheerleading to help children develop a relationship with Jesus. Upward is a sports program that focuses on the fundamental skills of the sports and teaching virtues through devotions that the athletes can use on and off the court. The program depends on volunteers for the key positions, including coaches and referees. If you'd like to help our league, please email the Upward Director!
