Rising Stars Skills Academy

We will not open registration for the Winter 2021/2022 Rising Stars Skills Academy option until sometime in September, 2021. 

Availability of the Rising Stars skills-only option will be dependent upon coach availability and may be limited to certain age groups.  

The Cornhusker Shooting Stars Mission:

In the CSS Program, we strive to challenge our players to achieve their maximum potential in practices and games. Our goal is to assist each player in becoming a complete athlete. Our renewed focus is on personal improvement, game knowledge and decision making, and team play, with less stress on the outcome of games.

Our players are consistently leaders in their high school programs throughout the state of Nebraska. Over 100 CSS players have gone on to play college basketball since 2001. 42 of those players have gone on to play at major NCAA Division 1 programs such as Nebraska, Illinois, Colorado State, Colorado, North Carolina State, Florida State, Kansas State, Iowa, Purdue, San Diego, Missouri, Memphis, Seton Hall, and Creighton.
