Rising Stars Youth Foundation has recently received some exciting news that they have been selected as one of the few programs in the country to participate in Under Armour’s new tournament circuit. Boys in grades 4th-8th will compete in the UA FUTURE Circuit while the high school boys and girls will hit the hardwood on the UA RISE Circuit.
As an official partner of the Rising Stars Youth Foundation, the 6th Boro Hoops team is excited to announce that we will be extending tryout invitations for the Rising Stars UA teams, to our top high school performers. We believe that this will be a great opportunity for our elite players to measure themselves against the best in the country in front of division 1 college coaches.
Moreover, the Jr.NBA recently announced the second edition of the U14 Jr.NBA Global Championship in Orlando, in which 6th Boro Rising Stars represented the U.S. Northeast Region last year. As the 2018 Northeast regional champions, 6th Boro RS will receive a bid for this year’s invite-only regional tournament on June 29-July 1 in Manalapan, NJ.
The Under Armour Rise grassroots basketball league will be launching in the Spring of 2019. UA Rise will follow and model itself after Under Armour’s flagship grassroots league, The Under Armour Association (UAA), to offer another opportunity for youth basketball players to compete in a highly organized and competitive league to pursue their dreams of playing at the next level.
The league will consist of teams from throughout North America in the 15U, 16U, and 17U age groups.
During the NCAA certified live periods in April and July UA Rise teams will play under the same roof as the UAA, creating one of the most powerful recruiting and evaluating showcases for college coaches anywhere in the country.
UA Rise will bridge its season between NCAA live periods with regional action that will round out each team’s 12 game regular season schedule.
At the conclusion of the 12 game regular season, the 16 top qualifiers in each age group will battle for the first ever UA Rise Championship during the July live period at the Lake Point Indoor Pavilion in Emerson, GA.
