Welcome to Dave Miller’s MVP Basketball Camp located in the beautiful South Bay of Los Angeles. Coach Miller has coached every level of basketball player from AAU to a bench assistant of the New Orleans Hornets in the NBA.
Many camps just ‘roll out the balls and play,’ but not us! We teach every player to play hard, play smart, and play together. We develop and instill a practice routine that includes the necessary skills to improve both the individual and team game. Our coaches teach footwork, shooting. rebounding, and ball handling skills in a positive and supportive manner.
Our goal is to help teach the camper skills and traits that will help them be successful both ON and OFF the court. Teamwork, unselfish play, academic success, good manners, eye contact and discipline are all important fundamentals that we stress and reinforce throughout the week. We will do everything we can to make your child’s experience at MVP CAMP rewarding, enjoyable, and memorable.
Fundamental youth camp ages 5-13
As a Family-run camp, we make it our business to get to know each and every camper.
