Introducing…The City Stars, elite AAU traveling team out of Inglewood (video)

City Stars is an elite invite-only AAU traveling team based out of Inglewood, CA.  Founder of the team, Jimmie Burton always had a desire to give back to his community and as a former Morningside High School basketball standout, Jimmie, along with childhood friend Lee Denmon III, led the Monarchs to multiple championships.  Tragedy struck when Lee was killed outside of his home in Inglewood and the team honors his memory by having Lee’s #5 emblazoned on our apparel.

Through strength conditioning, professional skills training, and leadership from our coaches, our players are trained to compete at a prestigious national level. Our teams have some of the best talent in their age groups on the West Coast and are nationally ranked. Our goal is not to win games, but to use basketball as a vehicle where the kids can be recognized and pursue scholarships at a D1 collegiate level. With the City Stars basketball program and philosophy, we believe that our players will have the tools they need to become top college candidates.

The City Stars is an ethnically diverse team with members from Inglewood, San Fernando Valley and the Inland Empire, Coach Jimmie and the kids are embarking on a history making season.  To support the team and their efforts, you are able to make a monetary donation or purchase our team socks.

Keep up with The City Stars on: Twitter, Tumblr and InstaGram and of course their awesome website!
