Camps

Rising Stars has been offering the finest day and overnight camps for over 25 years. Past staff and speakers reads like a who’s who of basketball and has included Jeff & Stan Van Gundy, Rick Pitino, Tom Penders, Bobby Cremins, and Jim Valvano. Past special guests have included, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley, and Steve Nash. Our instructional programs have also been the feature attraction at many other camps across the country, including the prestigious Michael Jordan Camps and the Swiss All Stars Camps. Rising Stars Day Camps are considered to be among the finest available anywhere in the world and have been the model for day camps across the country.

Each camp strictly limits its enrollment with a 5:1 camper to coach ratio assuring that each child receives the individual attention they need to improve. A special bonus is having most games officiated by three professional referees from the Rising Stars officials school. Every area needed for skills improvement is presented in a matter that makes it fun for a child to learn. At a Rising Stars camp learning is also complemented through playing in controlled scrimmages which gives campers a great opportunity to apply what they have learned in game situations.

Clinics

Rising Stars clinics are the vehicle that the program utilizes to enroll children into yearly programs and on to its teams. These clinics are considered among the finest available and as the pioneer of interactive basketball programming for boys and girls. Our clinics have been offered at Walt Disney Sports, The Michael Jordan Camps, and for a host of Recreational Youth Programs throughout the country and across the world.

The Rising Stars clinics have a simple philosophy. Tell them, and they will forget, Show them, and they may remember, INVOLVE them and they will understand! Each Rising Stars clinic puts an emphasis on each child’s involvement making them a part of the learning experience. We believe in learning by doing. We limit enrollment to assure that each child has a ball in their hands for the best basketball teaching environment possible. Rising Stars specializes in the introduction of basketball to K-4th graders in a manner that is both fun and easy to understand. The Rising Stars elementary clinics are second to none and a model for instruction at that level.

Rising Stars will come direct to your community to provide you with the highest level of teaching and instruction. Every clinic and instructional program is designed with you in mind and can be customized to fit any of your program needs.
