Young Stars Teams
Mountaln Brook Young Stars 7th and 8th Grade Teams will be selected with practices TBA in the Mountain Brook community.
Birmingham Young Stars 7th and 8th Grade Teams will be selected and will report to Draft Day next Saturday.
Birmingham Young Stars will not turn down any player who wants to work hard to improve their skill set. Equal opportunity will be made available for every Young Star to compete to play on the next level. Most of the players that other organization consider elite have probably already been selected for AAU play. We are not interested in those players. We wish them well in their Hoop Dreams. The fact is the world is full of stars who are way better than people who use to be way better than them because they refuse to be denied. We will try to answer all questions but we have to ask one. HOW BAD YOU WANT IT?
