STARS Basketball is excited to partner with 3STEP Sports as we transition to outfitting our Club Teams with Under Armour (UA) uniforms/apparel.  As equipping our 50+ club teams with UA gear is a major financial investment, the full transition will be a 2-year process.  Therefore, looking ahead to the spring, all 2023 Club Teams will be sporting UA uniforms!  

For the 2023 Club Season:

-All 50+ teams (every player) will receive a UA Backpack and 2 UA Shooting Shirts

-All high school teams (boys and girls) and the 8 teams competing on the UA Future Circuit will receive two sets of UA Uniforms 

 

Tryout Structure/Team Invite Process:

  • STARS will host two tryout sessions per grade/gender (current 2022-2023 school year).  Athletes are strongly encouraged to attend each tryout.  Depending on the # of athletes at a tryout and the need for further evaluation, STARS may host a third tryout for specific athletes.  Tryout structure normally includes skill work, shooting drills, and 1v1, 3v3, and 5v5 team play.
  • Team invites are normally sent within 72 hours of the final tryout.  Teams consist of 9-10 players (10 player max.); Player Fee (team fee and gear fee) can be paid in full or parents can choose the “payment plan” option; financial assistance may be available upon request.
  • All teams practice 2x a week; some of our top high school teams (boys and girls) may occasionally practice once a week due to heavy travel demands.

Tournaments:

Depending on the team (grade and “A” Team, “B” Team, and/or “C” Team), STARS teams play in the following type of events:

    • Local Tournaments:   MSYS Youth Basketball Tournaments, BBall Showcase
    • Regional/National Tournaments –  STARS teams will compete in various regional/national events, including the following shoe circuit platforms and events:  UA Rise Circuit, UA Future Circuit , HoopSeen Association Circuit, On the Radar Hoops, RYZE Hoops, Prep Hoops, AAU Girls State, Run 4 Roses, Battle in the Boro, Orlando Splash, National Championships-Orlando, etc.
