Sponsor a STARS Player

MarylandStarsLogoPlease consider sponsoring one of our players. Donations may be tax deductible – we’re a 501c(3) organization.

100% of your donation goes towards lowering the cost for not only the player you sponsor, but her whole team. Study after study demonstrates that kids who participate in team sports also achieve:

• higher grades, expectations, and attainment in school;
• greater personal confidence and self-esteem;
• greater connections with school— that is, greater attachment and support from adults;
• stronger peer relationships;
• more academically oriented friends;
• greater family attachment and more frequent interactions with parents;
• more restraint in avoiding risky behavior; and
• greater involvement in volunteer work.

Invest in your community by sponsoring a STARS player.
