For incoming 9th graders, the boys basketball team runs their own summer program. Please visit the MVHS Athletic Department website for more information (http://www.mvla.net/MVHS/Department/27-Athletics).
The Advanced Boys Basketball Camp is a high intensity camp geared toward athletes who aim to
improve their skill in a competitive environment. Offensive and defensive skills will be emphasized
in addition to a strength and conditioning component. Campers will have the opportunity to use
MVHS training equipment such as the shooting machine and Vertimax. They will also gain a
grasp of the concepts of the offensive and defensive strategies used at the high school level.
The pace of the instruction or drills will be higher than the average basketball camp, with a
similar coaching style to that of a high school basketball practice. This camp is geared to
athletes who aspire to play high school basketball in the future.
Note: This camp is for players with club, NJB All-Net, or similar experience.
This camp will run in one session: June 18-June 22, 2018 from 9:00am-3:00pm daily.|
The cost of a 5-day session of this camp is $395. This camp is open to kids entering grades 6
