BACK TO SCHOOL PROGRAM
Unfortunately, many athletes fall through the cracks and never achieve the success that wa available to them. This can be due to poor decision making, poor academic effort, poor life choices or having left another university. Fortunately, not all of these athletes turn out to be lost causes. Our Back to School Program offers these athletes a second chance. MVP searches for the athletes that are looking for a second chance and are willing to make the necessary changes in their life to achieve success.
MVP works with the athlete to help them attain their GED Diploma and
become a positive citizen. The student athlete is then helped on the
court to get in shape and fine tune their athletic skills. Once this has
been accomplished, the student athlete is invited to take part in the
MVP Collegiate Exposure Camp where we work to attain a basketball
scholarship for that individual.
One of the biggest MVP Basketball program success stories involved
a 6'9" basketball player that through poor decision making, never
played a single game of high school basketball. Once he was
determined to get his life on track, we helped him secure his GED,
acquired a basketball scholarship for him and sent him off to college.
In his second year of school, he was a team member of a National
Championship basketball team at the JUCO level. Upon graduation,
he received another scholarship to a 4 year school where he
completed his education. Today he is a self-sufficient family man.
