Bettering the lives of young people in Scotland, one game at a time

Physical Activity for Everyone

We run a range of after school programmes and clubs to get kids active, give them an opportunity to develop sports skills and have fun at the same time

From the Court to the Classroom

From our academic tutoring, mentorship and skills development sessions, we want to build the abilities and opportunities for the kids involved

Trips, Tournaments and more

Part of what we do is get tournaments organised for the kids involved, get trips to amateur and professional matches as well as trips and tours to universities in Scotland

What we do

Our mission started with Govan High School to develop a 6+ year collaborative scheme with UofG Basketball to offer children and young adults the opportunity to engage in sports, develop transferable skills and help them achieve their full potential in life.

So far the work we have done has seen a serious impact already and we now plan on expanding through Scotland and further in future.

The people at Rising Stars are what makes it all happen.

With our core members range of diverse skills and a hands-on attitude, Rising Stars has been able to grow year-on-year into what it is today, and will grow even more in future

We don't take any money from the schools we work with, and are grateful for the sponsors and supporters we have to help us run the services
