Mavs Summer Includes Basketball and Dance Camps for Area Youth

The Dallas Mavericks are back for the summer of 2018 with Mavs Basketball Academy, which includes Hoop Camps, Elite Camps, Dance Camps, and an Overnight Camp.

Mavs Basketball Academy is dedicated to helping athletes achieve basketball related goals by utilizing cutting-edge training techniques and a distinctive coaching style that stresses physical improvement, mental growth, and leadership necessary for long-term development and success.  During the summer, Hoop Camps will receive visits from Mavs players and coaches, and each participant will receive a goodie bag including a pair of Mavs game tickets to a 2018–2019 preseason game.

At Mavs Hoop Camps players learn the fundamentals of the game, and how communicate with other teammates and coaches with an emphasis on sportsmanship and responsibility. Hoop Camps are week-long and begin June 4th. Elite Camps provide participants the opportunity to improve upon their shooting technique, footwork, ball handling, passing skills, offensive moves, defensive principles and overall knowledge of the game. Elite Camps are 3 days a week and begin June 25th. Both camps will run through the beginning of August.

Mavs Basketball Academy will also be hosting an overnight camp, slated for June 10-14, at the University of Texas at Arlington.  This 4-night camp includes meals at the UTA cafeteria, boarding in university dorm rooms and the opportunity to meet a Dallas Mavericks player and front office staff.

Mavs Dance Camps, led by the Dallas Mavericks Dancers, will also return this summer as a part of the Mavs Basketball Academy.  The Mavs Dance Program is the top choice for dance instruction in the metroplex. Children of all skill levels will learn the fundamentals and exercises that helped form the best dance team in the NBA. Camp will place special emphasis on self-confidence, technique, fitness, and most of all, fun.  Campers will receive a Mavs game ticket to a 2018-2019 pre-season game, Mavs Dancer poster and a camp t-shirt.  They will also have the opportunity to dance during halftime at a Mavs pre-season game.

Mavs Dance Camps will be held 3 days a week, and will run from June 18th through July 25th.
