2017-2018 MVBA Traveling Basketball Teams

Thanks again to all of the players for their effort and willingness to try-out for traveling basketball. Below are the Girls & Boys try-out results by grade. Practices start in late October. We are interviewing and selecting coaches. Look for an email from your coach in Mid-October.


2017 - 2018 - PCA Parents Sessions (SAVE THE DATE)

We are finalizing our coaches selection and you should be in contact with your coach in mid October. The practice schedule is underway and that should be available in mid October as well. 

One of MVBA’s goals is to provide an opportunity for kids to play, compete, and learn the game of basketball in an environment that emphasizes FUN, fundamentals, teamwork, sportsmanship, and development. The positive impact that sports and great coaching can have on a child is seen many times over.

Partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA)
For the 2017-2018 Traveling and In-House season, the MVBA is partnering with the PCA to bring parents, coaches, and the way we communicate to players together on the same page.

 

Our commitment:  We are committed to requiring all coaches in the MVBA program to attend the Coaches PCA session and complete the Trusted Coaches Workshop. This will ensure all of our coaches have the tools to deliver a basketball experience that meets the MVBA Philosophy.

Your commitment: True development and a successful basketball experience takes a consistent combination of parent, coach, and player goals and expectations. We have set up (4) 30 minute training sessions for In-house and Traveling parents.

Who: Only one parent per "basketball player" family has to attend. 

When:  Please mark you calendar to attend 1 of the 30 minute sessions.

Oct 16 - From (6-6:30) or (7-7:30)

Oct 26 - From (6-6:30) or (7-7:30)

Where: Chippewa Middle School Auditorium

The goal is to provide all MVBA players a positive, character-building youth sports experience - and that starts with parents and coaches being on the same page. We are confident that you will learn some great things about youth sports, the power of positive coaching and parenting.

Thanks in advance for supporting this program with your attendance. Well equipped parents and coaches can truly make a difference in the development of our children.


MVBA Philosophy: Play, Compete, Learn

The Mounds View Basketball Association (MVBA) provides an opportunity for Boys & Girls to play, compete, and learn the game of basketball in an environment that emphasizes FUN, fundamentals, teamwork, sportsmanship, and development.

Although winning is fun, we believe winning is not an objective - 

Winning is an outcome of dedication and commitment to team, hard work, and constant learning.

Always be a student of the Game
