WILLIAMSON COUNTY: 2018 Spring Travel/Tournament Teams (Click Here);

Upward Stars Basketball is blessed and excited to enter our fifth season of forming teams for the spring/summer tournament circuit!  After forming 37 teams in spring, 2017, (26 in Williamson County; 11 in NORTH Nashville), Upward Stars plans on forming 36-38 teams for spring, 2018.  Current plans include forming 25-26 teams based in Williamson County and 11-12 teams based in NORTH Nashville (Hendersonville, Goodlettsville, Gallatin, Madison, and surrounding communities)!  

ON the Court: Our focus is developing the athlete through practices (TWO practices each week) and game play!  OFF the Court: We intentionally strive to shape the athlete mentally, spiritually, and socially.  Therefore, truly impacting each athlete ON and OFF the Court! 

Coaching Staff:  We are very pleased to welcome several new leaders to our Upward Stars Coaching Staff!  Visit our Coaches web page to learn more about each coach.   We are still in the process of  interviewing/hiring a few, additional coaches; therefore, our website will continually be updated with new coaches and their “bios.”  NOTE:  Most coaching assignments will be made by 1/31/18.

Putting a Quality Product on the Court:  From a sports’ credibility perspective, the club's  2017 spring/summer tournament teams competed at a high-level, having won 30 Championships (2016 – 20), earning 42 runner-up finishes (2016 – 27), & 44 semi-final appearances (2016 - 30) in national/regional/& local tournaments (AAU Nationals, HoopSeen Events; Phenom Hoops Events, NCAA Liver Period Events, etc.). 

We hope to see your athlete at tryouts! (NOTE:  Register by "current grade" - 2017-18 school year)
