2021 Mounds View Classic - Thank You!

The MVBA would like to thank the MN Heat and all of the volunteers, refs, parents, coaches, players, and associations for their support in making our 2021 MV Classic a huge success.

Thank You!

We would love to hear your thoughts: We are always trying to improve the MV Classic experience. If you have some constructive thoughts on how we can improve our tournament, we'd love to hear from you. Please send an email to our Tournament Director.  Visit  our 2021 MV Classic Page for final tournament results.

Little Mustangs / In House Master Game Schedule (Starting January 16, 2021)

Below is the current final schedule for the season through Feb 27.

As always - this official schedule weekly as we continue to make adjustments based on District gym availability. The MV District is not allowing spectators at this time, but each team may have 3 coaches and a parent to video or livestream the games.

In some instances we scheduled back to back games so teams did not have to leave the school and wait in their cars between games.  We also scheduled an additional 15 minutes between games this year to allow for extra cleaning and rest for those teams. 


In 2021 we are running a Mounds View only "Open Gym" league for a limited engagement. Click the link below to find out more and get signed UP.

Season Restart 2021 (updated 1/12/2021)

Here are some important details about the 2021 Season restart.  We understand some of these conditions are not ideal and somewhat constricting, but at the end of the day - we'll be getting these kids back into the gym to play some basketball.

These guidelines are set by our partnering body MYBA, the Governor's office, and MN Department of Health. The MVBA has pledged to follow the MYBA to ensure our teams are allowed to play in MYBA association tournaments. Regardless of individual opinions on the matter, it is important that all coaches, players, and parents follow  ALL guidelines to the best of our ability. 

  • Practices: Started on 1/4/2021. You should hear from your coaches regarding your practice times. 
  • Masks: Masks must be worn by all players and coaches during practices and games, no exceptions.
  • Parent Spectators: At this time, spectators will not be allowed at MVBA In-House Games.  Spectators at traveling tournaments will be allowed  as Tournaments and Districts allow within the Guidelines of the Governor's Return to Competition mandate. If this changes we will notify you. 
  • Daily Screening/Attendance Tracking: Coaches will need to track attendance at practices and games.  Parents must continue to screen for COVID symptoms before practices and games.
  • MYBA Pledge: The MVBA is required to follow all of the MYBA requirements. If we don’t follow their requirements, our teams will not be allowed to participate in MYBA member association tournaments or games.
  • Enhanced Reporting: We will be required to report on a bi-weekly basis the number of players/coaches that have tested positive or are in quarantine due to close contact. We will update our Survey Monkey link to gather additional information to allow us to report properly. Note that we are only reporting numbers, not names of positive cases or quarantines.
  • Return to COMPETITION: Since 1/14 is the Governor's date to return to competition - we will start In-House  games and Traveling Tournaments  on 1/16. Wait to hear from your Director and or Coach for upcoming tournament/game details.

Due to the uncertain nature of this year’s season, the MVBA Board has developed the following documents you'll find below:

  • COVID-19 Decision Tree to Attend Practice/Games 
  • COVID-19 Preparedness Plan
  • COVID-19 Cancellation Refund Policy
  • COVID-19 FAQs

We understand that there are more questions regarding this year’s season than we likely have answers for at this time. We will continue to update the FAQ document as more information is made available.

If you have any questions regarding the upcoming season, please do not hesitate to email them to

Thank you for your understanding, patience, and flexibility as we move forward with our 2020-2021 season.


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

Weather Issues

The  Minneapolis metro area experiences major winter storm warnings throughout the year.

We ask that coaches, players, and parents use their best judgement on whether or not to make it to practice. 

As a reminder - All practices/games are considered ON unless the District decides to shut down the building. 

If the District shuts down facilities and cancels events, the MVBA will send out a mass email, contact the coaches, and post it on the HOME page of our website.
