If you had 30 minutes to save the life of a kid, what would you do? What would you say?

The Florida Rising Stars experience is an opportunity for young sports enthusiasts, many 

from underserved areas, to participate in a world-class introduction to their desired focus in the industry, tutored by some of the nation’s greatest sports celebrities and practitioners. We are working with organizations like Boys and Girls Clubs, Big Brothers / Big Sisters and Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranches as well as high school coaches and athletic directors to identify deserving participants. Many of these kids will be able to attend our camp “Experiences” at little or no cost.


Just as there are five points on our star, there are five tracks to choose from in each of our one-day “Experiences.” Yes, we offer opportunities for middle schoolers (grades 6-8) to participate in sports instruction on the field, but what sets us apart is the opportunity for high school kids who have an interest in a myriad of sports careers to gain a parallel experience.


Each participant will have the opportunity to choose a fun, rewarding and educational experience, taught by the best and brightest practitioners in their chosen field -- from the Bill Patrick School of Sports Broadcasting, to curriculum in sports management and marketing, sports officiating and in athletic training and sports medicine.


And best of all, each of these tracks lead to the center of our star - “Life Lessons” embedded in the sports industry. Our all-star cast of more than 60 ambassadors will provide unmatched instruction and pass along their personal stories of success and advice to help our participants to get a head start.

As these young people complete the instruction provided by our amazing team in each chosen discipline, at the end of the day they will come together as one to learn how each track and each individual plays a key role in the success of the whole. They will learn the secrets to success, the dangers of drugs and alcohol and tips for sound mental and physical health.  It is a truly “Florida Rising Stars Experience.”


We need your assistance today to ensure these deserving young people have a world-class experience that just may change their lives forever.
