Our camps and clinics have always been co-ed but this year we will again be having an All Girls division for grades 4-12.
This will benefit these players to enjoy competition against other girls while attending one of the top camps in New England. The camp is directed by former college coach Kevin O'Brien who has run RISING STAR for 20+ years. The girl's division will be headed up by former Princeton player Andrea Razi-Thomas, who brings great passion for teaching to the game.

"I am thankful that my son and I met you last year. You have been a very positive influence on his life...certainly good lessons but also good life lessons. You are an awesome teacher and coach. You certainly have a great knowledge of the game, but you also have a rare ability to break the knowledge down into increments that can be readily absorbed. Plus you have a very motivational approach....you set a high bar and mix in positive reinforcement with direct feedback. It has been a great experience."

"The day to day workouts at RISING STAR are like no other. Coaches work you, kids all there to get better and it is real basketball and very fun. Impactful in my development and a major reason I was able to play so successfully in high school and college.. If you really want to get better go to RISING STAR."
Congratulations to Andrea Razi-Thomas on her appointment as Head Varsity Girls Coach at Melrose.
All Girls Division in Melrose, a huge success!
"Coach O’Brien and the Rising Star staff have a tremendous ability to not only teach the fundamental aspects of the game but also convey both a perspective and appreciation to the campers about the diligent work and practice required to find success on the court. Beyond the noticeable skill improvement over a 4 day period, Rising Star’s most notable strength is introducing and embedding a love and passion for basketball in the majority of young athletes that attend. "
-Sean Spellman, Head Coach at The Roxbury Latin School.
"I have had the pleasure of working at Rising Star Camp and I can tell you that there is no better place for a player to improve their skills in a short amount of time than this camp. Coach O'Brien is a dedicated coach and his passion for improving players skill sets is apparent right from the start. In my twenty four years of coaching high school basketball I have worked many camps across the country and Rising Star is clearly one of the best. I recommend Rising Star highly and I guarantee any player that they will be a better player and person after attending a session."
- Rob Sarmiento, Head Boys Basketball Coach, Arlington Catholic High School
"The RISING STAR Basketball School is a terrific opportunity for players to learn from the staff that is dedicated to teaching the fundamentals and learning the game in a competitive atmosphere"
