MVP Youth Basketball is a 9-week, Sunday afternoon league. Each week will begin with a 30 minute practice followed by a 45 minute basketball game. There are no practices or games during the week. The focus is always on fun, while teaching basic basketball fundamentals. Each player will receive an MVP reversible basketball jersey as well as a basketball sports trading card each week and a medal at the end of the season. We emphasize equal playing time and we strive to always create a positive and safe environment. MVP will focus on creating small teams with a maximum of 8 players per team so that every child will get plenty of playing time. All practices and games will be played on 8' hoops and the format is 4 on 4 during the game. Kindergarten kids will play with mini-basketballs and first and second grade kids will play with junior size basketballs. Two practices and games will take place at the same time in the gym. Kids will play width-wise in the gym as opposed to the full length of the court. The first week is a basketball clinic for all players!
MVP is happy to honor friend and coach requests. We will do our best to accommodate any request until we reach the maximum number of players per team. If you have a request, please state your request in the comment box during the registration process.
The time frame on Sundays will be between the hours of 12:00 pm and 5:15 pm with the kindergarten kids playing first, followed by the 1st and 2nd grade kids later in the afternoon. Schedules will be available prior to the basketball clinic.*The kindergarten teams at the Tigard location may start at 11:30 am so that we can accommodate all of the teams in that division.
Teams will be determined based on the number of registered players at each grade level. Kindergarten kids will play in their own division and first and second will either be in their own division or possibly combined, depending on the numbers.
