MISSION STATEMENT

At Houston Stars we believe in a Relentless Pursuit of Excellence in all we do. We want to train and challenge our athletes at the highest level. We want our athletes to have a profound impact on those around them On and Off the Court.

We believe that there is a need in Houston to not just be another club, but a club that parents want their daughters and sons to be a part of. We want to be a place where players can’t wait to get in the gym and get better. We believe there needs to be a place where every athlete is looked out for. 

Jesus lived his life with utmost integrity, a fiery passion for what he thought was right, and a keen sense for the needs of those around Him. This is how we will model the way we coach, train and compete.

ABOUT HOUSTON STARS

Houston Stars is committed to developing an athlete’s character as well as their physical talents. We recognize the unique opportunity available when working with our youngest athletes to not only instill a love for the sport of Basketball, but also to foster and develop the ability to be a good sportsman in triumph and defeat, both on and off the court.

Houston Stars provides unique programs designed to adapt and expand with each athlete as they develop in their personal athletic journey. See below our latest Fall 2021 programs and find the one that best fits! Each program incorporates intense practice sessions, high-level coaching, character lessons, and a service project.

OUR TRAINING PHILOSOPHY IS DIFFERENT

Houston Stars Basketball takes a different approch to training athletes. Over the years we have seen the game of Basketball advance in a rapid pace, BUT the training has stayed the same for 50+ years. Even NBA players tell you how they do things but if you record and watch closely they sometimes and most often do the opposite. 

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT:
Our philosophy is simple. We introduce a player to a new skill. We teach that skill, demonstrate that skill. Work with the player to get the skill down. Then move on to build more skill. It's up to our players to MASTER each skill. We give them the tools, teach them how to use them, THEY make them their OWN and advance. 

This is why we spend countless hours finding and utilizing non tradional training equipment and methods. We then implement training that directly equats to in-game results.  

We train players based on what they are trying to achive, NOT what limits them. 

One time in a gym with us and your will see and feel the difference.

TRAVEL TEAMS

In the past years we have built Travel Teams of older kids. We have mainly focused on the High School age groups. Our focus this year will be to build competitive Travel Teams of ALL age & grade levels to compete both locally, regionally and across the country. We will have offerings for players of every ability and will always believe in the potential for players to grow and develop into GREAT basketball players.
Each player will be required to Try-Out and be evaluated on Attitude, Skill Level, and Character to determine a spot on a team. We don't just take players of high skill and put them on 1 team. We care more about building lasting friendships, memories and players to play at a high level.   

At ALL levels of Travel Teams will require players to commit to multiple weekly practices and multiple game seasons. Travel Teams are a must if a player wants to play High School, College or Pro Level Ball.

Local

Our local teams will compete at a local Houston level. This is a great introduction to competitive basketball at a high level. Player will still be required to 

Regional

Our Regional Travel Teams are for more advanced and better seasoned players. These teams will travel within the Southern Region of the US, from Texas to Florida to California and in-between.  

National

This is where players get noticed. From sanctioned Jr. NBA Tournaments to AAU National Championship at Disney. These players and teams compete at the highest level.  

Try-Outs for the 2022 Season will Open in January 2022
