A Letter from our Director

Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to MVP Sports Camps. At our MVP Sports Camp, we strive to provide each camper with safe, challenging and fun situations designed so that the camper will stretch their limits and at the same time meet with success. We register boys and girls at all levels-beginners to advanced. Every MVP camper, regardless of ability or past experience is encouraged to realize their potential and is treated as an equal and valuable component of the team. While we hope to foster a sense of drive and determination, our emphasis is always on learning and improving rather than winning. However, our main goal will always be having fun in a safe way.

Michael Salvatelli

P.S. Bring a Friend!
