DEERFIELD, IL (FEBRUARY 23-MARCH 12, 2014) – Joy of the Game is hosting 2014 Spring tryouts for the popular Rising Stars Travel Basketball program. Boys and girls at every level, 2nd grade through 11th grade, will once again have the opportunity to join one of the most fun and competitive travel basketball programs based on the North Shore.

The JG Rising Stars travel teams are coached by a team of highly trained staff experts at Joy of the Game. The newly remodeled state-of-the-art courts at JG Sports Center give the teams a home-court advantage, and the teams play in at least six quality tournaments throughout the season. Additionally, Joy of the Game's partnership with the National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) also provides great visibility for recruitment, and many players go on to play for Division I, II, III & NAIA college basketball teams.
