2016 Rising Stars Showcase
Showcasing the Best Players from the Best Teams
The MYAS Rising Stars Showcase will feature the top players from each team in grades 5-8 that participate in A1 division of the MYAS Grade State Basketball Championships. Each team will have the opportunity to nominate two players and an alternate to participate in this premiere all-star event. If there are open spots available, we will fill those in with players on teams participating in the A2 division. We encourage the A2 coaches to nominate players as there are usually some open spots.
Important Information and Highlights
- Teams will be comprised of players from the teams in the A1 division (and possibly some A2 division teams) of the MYAS Grade State Basketball Championships for boys and girls in grades 5-8, as determined at the MYAS seeding meetings.
- The head coach from each of the top four seeded teams will have the opportunity to be the head coaches of the Rising Stars Showcase teams. Teams seeded 5-16 may send one coach to assist the head coach.

MYAS will not be providing practice time. Coaches and players are on their own if they wish to have a practice.
We ask that players wear their own uniform representing the community association that they participated with during the winter traveling basketball season. Please bring dark and light colored jerseys.
