Our son has played on a number of different teams, and the Greenwich Stars has provided the best experience by far. The difference maker is the professional coaching. The coaches have high expectations, preach team basketball, but ultimately focus on teaching kids the fundamentals of the game. All of this is done in a constructive, high-energy, and fun environment. Our son has grown to love basketball and loves being a part of the Greenwich Stars!

Coach Henry and General Manager John Raybin have taught my son so much. I can truly say that this is one of the best basketball organizations in New York and Connecticut. I know that because I have friends whose sons play for other teams and they are always complaining. We love being part of the Greenwich Stars family.

Our son has been playing for The Greenwich Stars for four years. Every season, he has had phenomenal coaching that has allowed him to bring his game to the next level. The structure of the practices allows the kids to have fun, while also teaching them so many valuable skills, whether it’s ball handling, footwork or specific plays. We love the program, and we are so happy to have found it.

Very few basketball programs possess tremendous organizational structure, elite coaches, professionalism and a desire to help make kids better. The Greenwich Stars and their President, John Raybin personify these qualities. They are a first rate organization who do things the right way.

Our son has gotten so much out of being a part of the Greenwich Stars. Each season his game has leaped forward. Not only thanks to the consistent and excellent coaching but also thanks to the culture at large that owner John Raybin insists upon. These are not just teams of talented kids. They are teams with heart. Teams who have fun. Teams who care about each other. Teams where everyone is encouraged to improve. We are so appreciative our kid is not just a number in this organization. He is well looked after. What more could we want?

Our son has played with Greenwich Stars for three years, first as a “Rising Star” and then as a part of the travel team. The program is teaching him the skills he needs to feel confident as a basketball player and as a team player. He loves coming to practice – and looks forward to being worked hard. The coaches expect a lot of their players, but treat them with respect and with belief in their ability. John Raybin’s support only enhances the coaching staff, and we feel lucky to have our son be a part of the Greenwich Stars family.

I would recommend The Greenwich Stars to kids of all ages. My son has played for the Greenwich Stars for 4 years and has developed into a much more all around player. The passion he has for the game keeps growing because all the coaches have a great understanding of how to drive home the essential skills and basketball IQ to make sure the kids become better players. It all starts with John Raybin, who makes sure the kids play as a team, have good sportsmanship, and the right environment for the kids to thrive.

The Greenwich Stars strikes the right balance of excellent coaching and the right values. The team wants to win and the kids are encouraged to play their hardest, but it is not about winning at all costs. John Raybin is not just a kind and helpful person but he has a great attitude and stands behind each player by encouraging them to play their very best. His genuine concern for each of the players is clear. Being on the Stars team has been a great experience for both of our sons!

Our son really loves playing on the Greenwich Stars. The program is extremely well run. The coaches are very knowledgeable and have an innate ability to relate to the kids. But most importantly while the program is very competitive (the team is going to the Nationals) the emphasis is for everyone to have a fun time.

After hearing about the Greenwich Stars program from other basketball coaches, we became convinced that we had found the place to try out. We noticed right away that the organization was very professionally and passionately run. The progress the girls made in such a short time was amazing to us. They seemed to absorb skills and understanding as if by osmosis from their coach. Without a doubt, this would never have happened apart from the Greenwich Stars and their dedicated staff and coaches.
