MEMO:  Upward Stars Basketball (SPRING TRAVEL/TOURNAMENT TEAMS - TRYOUT DATES ANNOUNCED)

NOTE:  CLICK HERE to visit the web page containing links to both the Williamson County and North Nashville Hubs team/tryout details. 

Upward Stars is blessed and excited to enter our fifth season of forming teams for the spring/summer tournament circuit!  Upward Stars plans on forming 36-38 teams for spring, 2018.  Current plans include forming 24-26 teams based in Williamson County and 12 teams based in NORTH Nashville (Hendersonville, Goodlettsville, Gallatin, Madison, and surrounding communities)!   Tyouts will begin in early February and run through early March for some teams. All details (dates/team details/costs/etc.) are on our website.

We are very excited about the structure for teams this spring!  Teams will practice twice a week the entire season.  During the week of spring break, we plan on hosting shooting/skills' clinics for those athletes that are in town (free-part of team fee).  Therefore, athletes will be on the court twice a week, in addition to tournament play.  Some of our Premier Teams will play into July, including a few of our high school teams that will be participating in NCAA "Live Period" events.   

Due to our growth in both Williamson County and in North Nashville, we have several NEW coaches on board!  We are excited and grateful to bring on some very experienced leaders:  former professional/college coaches, former collegiate/professional players, and high school assistant coaches.  While we are still interviewing and hoping to hire one to two more coaches to complete our staff (and still updating our website with "new coach" bios), click here to learn more about our current coaching staff
