STARS Basketball will be hosting tryouts on May 14th and May 21st for STARS Teams that will be competing in area summer leagues! STARS will form teams for: Rising 3rd through Rising 8th Grade Boys and Rising 4th through 8th Grade Girls (2023-2024 school year). Plan is to form two teams per grade for most age groups.
Team size: 9 – 10 players per team
Compared to other STARS teams (Spring and Winter), Summer teams represent the lowest commitment of time from a family/athlete’s perspective. Participation in a Summer League with STARS allows your athlete to get in the gym consistently twice a week for approximately 8 weeks (1 CONSISTENT weeknight for a game; 1 CONSISTENT practice night). The current plan is for STARS Teams to start practices the week of May 28th. With summer travel, out-of-town camps, etc., we expect players to miss practices/games from time-to-time; this is expected and OK.
As we have coaches/friends/contacts at both Franklin Road Academy and Battle Ground Academy, we will place teams in both the FRA PERFORMANCE LEAGUE and the BGA LEGENDS LEAGUE. Both leagues feature “one game a week (weeknight games)” and our STARS teams will practice evening per week.
Tryout Fee: $35 (early bird price) – if registered by 5/5; 5/6 and later – $40 (tryout fee covers both tryout sessions)
FRA Performance League:
BGA Legends League:
While we plan on forming the below teams for each grade/gender, plans could change depending on volume of athletes at tryouts, talent level, and coach supply.
PRACTICES: (90-minute weekly practices) – Teams will begin practicing the week of May 28. All practices will take place at TOA Sports Performance Center (215 Gothic Court, Franklin, TN.)
