2022 Summer Teams

League/Team Info:

STARS Basketball will be hosting tryouts in mid-to-late May for STARS Teams that will be competing in area summer leagues!  STARS will form teams for:  Rising 5th through Rising 8th Grade Boys/Girls (2022-2023 school year).

 

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 weeknight for a practice).  The current plan is for STARS Teams to start practices the week of May 23rd and/or week of May 30th. With summer travel, out-of-town camps, etc., we expect players to miss practices/games from time-to-time; this is expected and OK. 

 

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 “one weeknight” per week.  Therefore, no weekend commitment, other than potentially one Friday/Saturday that may be used for tournament play (July 15th/16th).

  • Sunday, May 15th and Sunday, May 22nd (Athletes are STRONGLY encouraged to attend BOTH tryout sessions)
