Upward Stars Basketball is blessed and excited to enter our sixth season of forming teams for the spring/summer tournament circuit!  After forming 39 teams in spring, 2018, (29 in Williamson County; 10 in NORTH Nashville), Upward Stars plans on forming 38-40 teams for spring, 2019.    

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 couple of coaches which impacts the teams that some of our current coaches will be assigned to coach; therefore, our website will continually be updated with coaching assignments and new coach “bios.”   

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 32Championships, earning 44 runner-up finishes, & 40+ semi-final appearances in national/regional/& local tournaments (AAU Nationals, HoopSeen Events; Phenom Hoops Events, NCAA Live Period Events, etc.). 

We hope to see your athlete at tryouts!
