Grades 5-8 will use Level 4 rules!
Our 5-8 grade Upward leagues will once again be playing Level 4 rules– just like last year! These rules allow for free substitution, time outs, pressing and zone defense and create a more competitive environment. As was true last year, this league will conclude with a Tournament. Please help spread the word as we would love to have enough players to have separate 5-6 and 7-8 grade leagues!
Let’s go, girls!
We would love to have a 5-6 or 4-6 grade girls league this year! Like the boys, this league would play Level 4 competitive rules. We would need enough girls to have four teams so please help us spread the word!
Louisville Stars Developmental Academy registration is underway!
St. Matthews Baptist Church will be hosting an Upward Stars Developmental Academy this fall for players in grades 4-6. The camp will meet for 7 sessions– Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings beginning October 10. Cost is $195 per player. Phil Morrison (see profile below) will be heading up this camp. Some of kids met Phil this summer when he made a guest appearance at our summer clinic. Space is limited so don’t delay! Here is the registration link: http://www.upwardstarslexington.org/basketball/louisville/developmental
We had hoped to be able to offer this experience for grades 7-8 as well but space limitations in our gym are not going to make that possible at this point. We are looking at other options so please be patient if you have a player in that age range. We haven’t forgotten about you!
International Skills Trainer Phil Morrison is the new Director of Upward Stars Louisville and will be leading our October Developmental Academy! Phil has competed professionally in six countries and was a college basketball All American and All Conference selection. He has trained players at every skill level from youth to pros. Most recently he worked with Ohio State guard (and first round NBA draft pick) DeAngelo Russell. Phil’s focus is to develop complete players at the highest level: mind, body, spirit and skills. Phil is available for private training. Click here for more info!
