2018 - 2019 - PCA Parents Sessions (SAVE THE DATE)

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 2018-2019 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 17 - 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.

MV Fall Basketball Skills Camp (MEA Week)

Come join Mounds View Girls Head Basketball Coach Ashlie Anzel and Boys Head Basketball Coach Dave Leiser in a two day basketball skill development session.

This is a great way to improve fundamental skills such as, dribbling, shooting, passing, etc., just before the season begins. Each session will be age appropriate and will challenge players to improve multiple elements of their game.

Focuses will be on ball skills, shooting form, and footwork. Registration costs $40.

Traveling Tryout Team Placement

Thanks to all of the MVBA volunteers, evaluators, and players for making this year's tryouts a great experience.  

Not everyone will make a traveling team (or the team they think they should make) and that's OK. Our goal is to place each player in a spot where they will be challenged and can grow in their basketball development. It's only a snapshot of their basketball career. If they truly love basketball - they will continue to play and improve.

Parents and players - The MVBA applauds your support in this philosophy.

The 2018-2019 Traveling Teams are below. 

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
