Educational Seminars

The Rising Stars goal is to develop every Rising Stars participant into a more complete person, equipped with the tools to make the correct decisions when faced with many challenges during the formative years. We strive to develop a more balanced individual that utilizes sports as a vehicle to improve academic achievement, build character, and help them develop greater strength emotionally, socially and individually. 

We ask each child to attend a “core curriculum” of educational seminars that deal with social and community related issues. These include seminars on drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, bullying and how to life a healthier life, overall. The core curriculum includes completing community service in one of our partner organizations or serving as a counselor for our younger teams.
