Shooting Stars Program


MVLA is excited to offer another season of our Shooting Stars program, a skills based series of sessions based on the MVLA curriculum.  Led by MVLA Coaches Marianna Sullivan and Kayley Sullivan, this program is open to younger players (born in 2012, and 2013) who are looking to improve their technical ability in a positive, exciting, and challenging environment.  The Shooting Stars Program provides an opportunity for children to develop dribbling and shooting skills, coordination and spatial awareness while having fun playing with their friends.  Join our 2018 Fall season now!
