The Rising Star Basketball School

Fundamentals….Skillwork…Confidence….Improvement!

 

The The Rising Star Basketball School was founded with the desire to create an atmosphere to teach the game properly. Unlike many camps that emphasize “just playing” or “casual instruction,” Rising Star continually seeks to improve the ability level of our players by providing them with superb coaches who oversee thorough teaching and proper repetitions.

 

The atmosphere at our camp encourages players to improve their work ethic and skills while always fostering the importance of sportsmanship and team play. The deterioration of skill development in the United States has been attributed to the lack of fundamentals. Players are not being taught properly, if at all. Across the country, shooting, ball handling, passing and overall team concepts have suffered over the last several years. Rising Star values improving these very necessary skills that every aspiring player must have, regardless of level.
