Springfield S.T.A.R.S. is a Non-Profit Missouri organization who supports and promotes competitive basketball. Our organization is committed to developing student-athletes between the ages of 5-17 to become successful players at the Junior High, High School and College levels. Developing youth to be successful in competitive basketball at a high level also prepares them for success in life after basketball. The lessons taught in preparing and competing at a very high level of competitive basketball are the primary tools in developing youth for success in life. These lessons include: leadership, self-discipline, respect (self & others), accountability, hard work and community service.
Our goal is to build competitive teams, and training our players to be the best, by teaching organized basketball. We teach and train our players to maximize their efforts, fundamentally and skillfully, beyond normal expectations. A great deal of Dedication, Development, Desire, Determination, Discipline and Domination will be expected of each player. We hope to instill in beginners, fundamentals that will make them better. And for those who become better, we will strive to make them the Best! We don’t want our players recognized for their athletic abilities. We want them known for developing into fundamentally sound athletes.
