The Greenwich Stars are are open to elite, travel, school and recreational players. Practice sessions are held at Carmel Academy, Greenwich, CT and The Leffell School, Hartsdale, NY (formerly the Solomon Schechter School). The Greenwich Stars have outstanding professional coaches (no parent coaches). Our coaches have won multiple National championships and have extensive basketball backgrounds. Our coaches preach great sportsmanship, and dedication and respect for the game.
The Greenwich Stars are more than a basketball organization – The Stars are a “community” that is committed to helping young people on and off the court. When a player makes a commitment to our basketball organization, they become our top priority. We truly care about each and every one of our players and their families. We are in the basketball world to have a positive and lasting impact on all our players. Swearing, poor behavior and technical fouls are not allowed on the Greenwich Stars. We want every player to grow and learn and become a better person on and off the basketball court. Our goal is to win basketball games — but it’s even better when you win by playing within the rules, by playing as a team and by playing hard and always doing your very best.
The Greenwich Stars are not a “sports factory” like so many others. All players have fun and they learn the fundamentals and skills needed to become a better player. Practices are “learning experiences” and teamwork is emphasized. The Greenwich Stars also have a mentoring and leadership program, as well as a unique basketball program (called “Special Stars”) for children who have Special Needs.
