 Congratulations to Millbrook High School senior Courtni Green as she announced that she has verbally committed to continue her education and play college basketball for the University of Delaware. Courtni has helpled lead her Millbrook High School team to 50 consecutive wins and back - to - back Virginia AA State Championships. She has been named the Virginia AA Player of the Year in 2010 & 2011. In her first three years, she has scored 1,750 points, averaging 26 points per game. She has received numerous awards during her career thus far including Region Player of the Year all three years, and many more. What the statistics will never tell is how skilled, knowledgeable, determined, and court savvy that Courtni is and how hard she works to make her team and teammates successful. She has grown her game to be an offensive threat from the perimiter, with the short range jumper, and off the dribble. She is a tenacious defender and a relentless rebounder who competes 100% of the time that she is on the court and works hard to continue to improve. During her AAU / Travel career with the Rising Stars, she has helped lead her teams to a D2 National Championship when she played on the 13U girls team a few years ago.    She also lead that same team to a Div 2 National Runner up at 12U

 WHAT IS A RISING STAR?

BEING A RISING STAR YOU PLAY TO WIN. NOT TO SCORE,TO REBOUND OR TO EXCEL IN ONE PARTICULAR AREA, BUT TO WIN.  THAT MEANS YOU ARE  REBOUNDER, SCORER, PASSER AND EVEN A CHEERLEADER.  IT MEANS YOU ARE GOING TO BE AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT HAVING A WINNING ATTITUDE IS ALL ABOUT.  YOU'LL HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF UNSELFISHNESS THAT KEEPS YOU CRAVING MORE CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR THE TEAM, NOT GLORY FOR YOURSELF.  IT MEANS YOU'LL SET AN EXAMPLE AT EVERY PRACTICE BY PRACTICING HARDER THAN ANYONE ELSE.  IT MEANS YOU'LL CHALLENGE YOURELF, SET GOALS AND THINK OF YOUR TEAM BEFORE YOU THINK ABOUT YOURSELF... EVERY TIME YOU STEP ON THE COURT. 

Co-Chairman of the Winchester Rising Stars, Erick Green has been appointed by the Virginia AAU Executive Committee to be the Representative for the Shenandoah Valley Region.

For the past three years the Rising Stars players and parents have provided Christmas gifts for needy children in the Winchester area.
The kids have performed community service work by picking up trash and trimming bushes along Abrahms Creek.


MISSION STATEMENT:
The purpose of the Winchester Athletic Association is to partner with local recreational organizations and academic institutions to provide children the opportunity to play on competitive travel teams in conjunction with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). We will promote physical fitness, academic achievement and social development. We will encourage participants to perform at a high level on and off the court, using the game of basketball as a vehicle for collegiate level opportunities.

VISION STATEMENT: To provide amateur sports competition in accordance with the rules and standards set forth by the Amateur Athletic Union. To become a club and build teams that will be a dominant force on a national level. Our coaches will strive for the development of the individual, teaching sportsmanship and team effort. It is our goal to play highly competitive basketball every single game. We will develop an academic enrichment program that will improve student athletes grades and SAT/ACT scores. We will develop a rapport with collegiate coaches so they can recruit our participants to attend their college. 

The premiere AAU Girls & Boys Basketball Program in the Winchester Area.  We are one of the very few AAU organizations in the STATE  that have won District, State and NATIONAL Championships.

Over the past two years partipants in our organization have received over 1 million dollars in athletic scholarships awards to attend Div 1, II and III institutions.

Over 95%  Rising Stars graduates are in or have been accepted  to various colleges throughout the country.....The program is working!!

The Rising Stars is co-sponsored by Frederick County Parks & Recreation located in Winchester, VA.
