Rising Stars Basketball

Rising Stars Basketball is a Wisconsin AAU Basketball Club dedicated to the growth and development of young athletes. We are fully committed to the proper training and development of young athletes who are looking to excel in the game of basketball.

Our aim is to develop leaders on and off the court, help teammates, fellow classmates, and become role models within their respective communities. This is accomplished by focusing on character development through the Five Pillars of Athletic Success; Attitude, Respect, Technical, Tactical and Work Rate.

Dedication and Promise

Rising Stars Basketball is dedicated to equal playing time, equal player development, and ensuring that each player is given the chance to succeed by putting them in the right positions to help the team make a positive impact.
