Each year, Rising Stars teaches and develops strong travel teams to compete on the local circuit. The Rising Stars difference is that all of our coaches and trainers have either played college basketball or coached at the high school level.

Every year, players from the Rising Stars program have gone on to play college basketball at the Division I, II, and III levels. Over the past four years alone, Rising Stars has sent student athletes to play at Navy, Brown, NYU, Seton Hall, Emory, Haverford, Bowdoin, Assumption, Adelphi, Vermont, Quinnipiac and Fordham.

The biggest key for success is getting involved with the right program, and Rising Stars is it. Come be part of the Rising Stars difference!

Registration is at the door. The fee for the tryout will be $20.
