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.
Our commitment: We are committed to requiring all coaches in the MVBA program to attend a 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 four 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 18 - From (6-6:30) or (7-7:30)
Oct 24 - 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 and the power of positive coaching.

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
