The Saint John Rising Stars Youth Basketball Club is a FREE youth sports program, established in the priority neighbourhood of Saint John’s South End in September, 2014. The program operates under the governance of the Boys and Girls Club of Saint John at the South End Community Centre, serving boys and girls from grades 4-8.
Rising Stars offers an affirming environment and equal access, regardless of financial means, to quality coaching and appropriate skills development for players of varying abilities. We want our kids to have a positive experience of sport and chance to achieve their potential as athletes. We practice twice a week and play scrimmages, have games with other Saint John leagues, and attend tournaments and special events as appropriate to the development of our players.
The cost of Rising Stars basketball is free; however, we expect our players to earn their time on the floor by always doing their best. We expect players to attend regularly, work hard, be respectful of teammates and coaches, and help with activities such as fundraising and organizing events.
