Fairfax Stars History

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE PAST 23 YEARS

The first 23 years have been amazing.  Led by a talented, enthusiastic, and dynamic Executive Director, Aggie McCormick-Dix is realizing a dream of providing enormous opportunities for the youth of our community, and in doing so, also teaching about character and citizenship which is all a part of the vision…“striving for excellence…on and off the court!”.  The history is rich…the impact has been dramatic..and the future is extremely exciting and bright!  GO STARS!!

After founding the Fairfax Stars in 1996, the program began competition with boys and girls teams in 1997. Since that time, there have been many championships, however more important is the faithful adherence to the commitment to teach participating athletes fundamental skills and knowledge of the game of basketball, and supporting every student-athlete in the pursuit of their dreams.

The relationships that have been built with players, parents, and families over these years is an enduring testimony to the fulfillment of the dream that Aggie implemented more than two decades ago.  Thank you to all of the volunteer coaches that have dedicated their knowledge, energy, enthusiasm, and love to supporting so many young players over these years.  Looking forward to a future that continues to prepare young people to compete in life.
