Rising Stars Athletics: Welcome

OUR MISSION

The mission of the Rising Stars Athletics is to provide the Pee Dee area's top student-athletes aged 6-18 years old with a year-round opportunity to develop fundamental and advanced athletic skills and to grow into accomplished, self-confident  and responsible student-athletes.

 

  • We believe beginning players should develop a love for the game and enough confidence to pursue the game at higher levels.
  • We also believe that the players should develop an understanding of the mental aspects of the game as well. 
  • Lastly, we want to teach players about the history of the game and facilitate the development of the players so that they will maintain the integrity of their perspective sport. 
To become a better athlete, athletes must dedicate their time to practicing drills which will help them excel in sports. These drills will also help the players realize that in order to become successful in life, you have to work hard. It is our hope that the time spent in the gym/field will propel individual players ahead of those who fail to put forth the time and energy in the gym. With our increased emphasis on fundamentals and advance skills, a player will feel confident about themselves thus creating a more competitive player.

OUR PLAYERS’ DEVELOPMENT

Development is one of the most important concepts that will be stressed in our program. Rising Stars will take the word "development" and give it special meaning. Rising Stars will teach fundamental basketball skills for development through weekly group drill sessions, individual drill sessions, summer camps, college tours, and seminars featuring guest speakers. Rising Stars will also teach life lessons that will build a foundation of character and further develop the characteristics needed to succeed in life. Rising Stars wants to teach its athletes about the value of life through athletics.
