MVP School of Sports was launched in 2005 through a boys and girls basketball camp called MVP School of Basketball. This camp filled a great need for competitive camps that were both fun and interactive with guest speakers from the community and staff that held the same passion for the game of basketball as the campers did.
The following winter we offered two basketball programs: The Northeast Georgia Feeder League for girls and The Premier League for boys. Competitive leagues were born that would allow boys and girls to play with their school classmates on Varsity courts with regulation basketballs and certified officials with limited governing rules. The following fall the MVP Youth Football League was founded which gave school-based teams a chance to play on non-Saturdays and in environments that were safe and family-friendly. MVP School of Sports also began to offer one-on-one basketball training for athletes looking for geographical convenience and affordability.
There is nothing more exciting than playing a part in the building process for everyone who trains or competes in a program provided by MVP School of Sports. We take every camp, clinic, league and training session seriously because it all plays an integral role in the building process of athletes. The ultimate satisfaction is seeing players who are determined and eager to get better at the sport they love.
Our coaching staff has a wealth of experience when it comes to building athletes into competitive and productive teammates as well as individuals. Our staff takes pride in EVERYTHING we do at MVP School of Sports.
We believe all potential is perishable and has a shelf life. We also believe that the skills that are fine-tuned at MVP School of Sports help empower EVERY athlete mentally, physically, and emotionally when it comes to growth in areas other than sports.
