Jacksons Rising Stars were founded
in the spring of 2005 by Ray Jackson and his longtime childhood
friend Kevin Robinson. Together, with a group of very talented
and dedicated parent volunteers, the Rising Stars Academic
and Athletic Program was born.
The Rising Stars
have since grown to be one of the premier AAU basketball programs
in the Central Texas area with many of its players going on
to be successful at the collegiate level.
Rising Stars Academic and Athletic Program is a non-profit
organization that stresses the needs of today's youth. Through
our program we strive to provide social, educational and recreational
opportunities for children from diverse backgrounds so they
may become contributing members of their families and communities.
A major program objective is our use of basketball. Through
sports, we are able to reach children from all walks of life
and help them achieve their goals and become responsible adults.
Today's youth face multiple risks in making decisions about
their education, careers, health, and relationships with others,
society is widespread with examples of actions that are detrimental
to our youth. Increased effort by all youth serving organizations
is needed to provide the positive choices that will allow
our youth to grow up to be responsible citizens. The Rising
Stars have the ability to promote life skills that should
provide our youth the chance to cope with the challenges that
they will face in everyday life.
