ABOUT US

Ray 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. (...read more)

April 30, 2012 - CONGRATULATIONS to our Team 2013 Elite for winning the Battle for the Arch in St. Louis Missouri! Not only did they win the 'ship but they won it in overtime to a team they had painfully lost to the day before! It was a tough two days of basketball for our boy's battling through injuries and questionable calls (or lack-there-of) to come out on top! WAY TO GO BOYS!!!

Our Team 2017 also made the trek back down to Houston for the Rytes Warriors Spring Superfest and went 2-2 for the weekend. They were missing some key players and had to invite some guest players to help out, but all-in-all they worked hard and persevered. We look forward to seeing them play locally on May 5th and in Georgetown on May 18th ith their complete team.
