Founded in 1966,
Five-Star was the brainchild of two New York City basketball junkies, Howard Garfinkel and Will Klein,

who shared a common passion and purpose: To create a top-notch teaching camp and help kids improve their games.

Fate has been good to Five-Star. Future Hall of Famers, Hubie Brown and Chuck Daly, taught and lectured at that very first session. Bob Knight invented ‘teaching stations’ as the camp’s lead instructor two years later.

And dozens of legendary coaches, including John Calipari, Rick Pitino, Mike Malone, and Frank Vogel, all launched their careers on our courts.

At last count, over 10% of Naismith Hall of Fame Coaches have either worked or lectured at Five-Star: Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim, Bill Self, Roy Williams, Bob Hurley Sr., Morgan Wootten, Jim Calhoun, Gary Williams, and Larry Brown to name a few.

More than a cradle for coaches, Five-Star has been a proving ground for blue-collar and blue-chip players alike: Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Dominique Wilkins, Isiah Thomas, Chris Mullin, LeBron James, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Carmelo Anthony, Kemba Walker, Tobias Harris, Kyrie Irving, and Karl-Anthony Towns have all worn the iconic orange and white t-shirt.


Sold out for the third consecutive year, the NBPA x Five-Star Basketball Camp was a great success in New York City!
