"Fundamentals are the cornerstone of any successful player and successful program and nothing beats the instruction at RISING STAR. Coach O'Brien is committed to each and every player that attends his camps and wants to make sure that each player leaves with the knowledge and the tools to take his/her game to the next level. Coach O'Brien's attention to detail is without parallel."
Rich Cormier, Head Coach at Norwood High School
"In the basketball camp world, RISING STAR is unparalleled in regard to teaching the game. Fundamentals have seemingly been forgotten in the modern day of basketball pedagory. RISING STAR provides master teaching of the fundamental skills of ball handling, shooting and passing. RISING STAR blends intensity with fun, hard work and sportsmanship.For aspiring players, there is no finer atmosphere in which to learn how to play the game of basketball."
Bishop Feehan boys basketball coach Matt Freeman began seeing his players attend the Rising Star Basketball School in Mansfield each summer together.
Freeman said he thinks there is no coincidence that over that span of time his Feehan squads have averaged 17 wins a season playing in the Eastern Athletic Conference. “There’s no question that’s a factor,” he said. “The camp is an extension of the work we ask them to do in the offseason.”
"I HAVE BEEN IN THE COACHING PROFESSION FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND THE RISING STAR BASKETBALL SCHOOL IS THE BEST TEACHING CAMP I HAVE COME ACROSS. IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WANTS TO BECOME A BETTER BASKETBALL PLAYER, IT IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. MY SON AND DAUGHTERS ALL HAVE ATTENDED AND ARE BETTER BASKETBALL PLAYERS BECAUSE OF KEVIN O’BRIEN AND HIS STAFF"
