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
