Our Mission

Our mission is to utilize the game of basketball as the vehicle to promote education, reinforce values and provide our youth with a safe environment to PLAY, LEARN and GROW.

The ultimate goal of our programming is to provide structured, youth-centered activities which will provide participants with the skills and mindset to lower the ever-growing poverty rate, promote healthy living and focus on the rewards of academic success, developing leadership skills and building constructive relationships within the family, community and society as a whole. We use the power of “teams” as a conduit to mentor, teach, train, empower and enrich the lives of the youth in our communities.

To Play

Rising Stars keeps kids active on teams throughout the year that help promote a healthy lifestyle. Our teams teach kids as much about fun as they do about hard work, dedication, and cooperation.

To Learn

Learn the importance of values, education and making the correct decisions and choices in life. Learn to balance academics and athletics and understand the value of both.

To Grow

Grow responsibly, be respectful and caring. Grow to respect diversity. Grow athletically, academically, and socially. Grow into a complete individual, prepared for life and resolved to succeed.
