Minnesota Stars is an organization dedicated to providing quality basketball for girls in the state of Minnesota and surrounding areas. In our 18th year of existence you will see our committment to developing our players skills.  

The goal of the Minnesota Stars is to give the opportunity for quality female athletes, to showcase their talents in front of hundreds of college coaches throughout the spring and summer.  We believe that this type of exposure gives each girl the best possible chance to improve their game and to receive a college scholarship.

Our Coaching staff comes from College Coaches, High School Coaches and coaches that have dedicated themselves to teaching young women the game of basketball. We stress fundamentals. We want the girls to go back to their Schools and have increased their skills and love for the game.
