Knox County UNITE is excited to be partnering once again with local churches, Barbourville First Baptist, East Barbourville Baptist, and Turkey Creek Baptist, to provide the UPWARD Basketball program at First Baptist Church of Barbourville.


The UPWARD Program teaches sports skills and values, offers family-friendly schedules, allows kids to make new friends, and provides equal playing time. Kids will be individually recognized at each game and find positive role models in coaches and other volunteers.

The Program seeks to develop character in every player by providing an equal opportunity for improvement, while stressing sportsmanship in every situation.

Curt Corey, Director of the local UPWARD Program, says “We are excited to be offering this opportunity to our area youth.” He believes it is a great opportunity to develop basketball and or cheerleading skills while at the same time building character traits that will last a lifetime.
