  MINNESOTA METRO STARS HISTORY:

The Minnesota Metro Stars Basketball Club has been in existence since 1997 and in that time our teams have won numerous AAU State Championships from the 12U-19U age levels as well as Nike and Adidas exposure event tournament titles. We have sent teams at all age levels to AAU National Tournaments.  Graduates from our program have gone on to play college basketball at D1-D3 schools around the country.  

Players that have played in our program have gone on to be named Miss Basketball Minnesota after their senior year of high school.  First team all-state and all-metro players have played their spring and summer ball wearing a Metro Stars uniform.  Girls Basketball Recruit has named members of our coaching staff "AAU Coach of the Year" on multiple occasions.  In 2010 our top team, Metro Stars Black, finished the AAU season as the top ranked team in Minnesota by Gary Knox of GPrep and the top ranked team in the coverage area by Kevin Anderson of Girls Basketball Recruit.  

The experiences you will have as a member of the Metro Stars are second to none. Not only will our program prepare you to become a better basketball player, we will help to prepare you for life in college and beyond. As our slogan says "success on the court is necessary, but not sufficient".

Metro Stars team fees covers everything except personal travel expenses to out-state tournaments. With this fee you will receive:

  • The opportunity to play in a program that has earned national respect from other programs as well as NCAA coaches at all levels in all parts of the country

  • A financially affordable basketball experience compared with many AAU programs

  • The opportunity to compete with the best players in the state and against the best players in the country

  • On average two practice sessions per week (typically from 7-9 PM)

  • Highly qualified coaching

  • Top college exposure

In an attempt to allow for maximum college exposure for our players, the Metro Stars program hand picks elite exposure events to send our teams to during the NCAA viewing period. Because we are not associated with a shoe company we have the ability to attend the Nike, Adidas, and AAU events of our choosing.
