Hello, VABA Family!

2021 marks the 24-year anniversary that VABA has been running basketball camps!  These are popular, dynamic programs and a unique combination of fun and quality, inspiring basketball teaching.  VABA Summer Programs fill fast, so be ready when registration opens VERY SOON!  Please click here if you're interested in VABA's 2021 Summer Camp Information!

COVID Plan: Outdoor + Masked

VABA's plan for Summer Camp includes our self-designed and successfully-utilized outdoor venues at PVCC/Monticello HS.  All VABA Summer Camps will be outdoor + masked (also using VABA COVID Health Waiver + Affidavit).   Playing outdoors with masks also allows all normal basketball activities to occur.  This means VABA's dynamic skills & drills, competitive teaching and breakdown and full-court 4-on-4 games!

Location:  PVCC/Monticello HS
Due to the success of VABA's "Polar Bear Basketball League," we have a beautiful setting for safe, outdoor basketball.  We will also have an expansive "Shade Tent" set up for socially-distanced breaks, motivational talks, video viewing and breakdown.   Monticello HS also has some shaded court space for especially warm days.  

Basketball Curriculum: VABA Tradition (Fun + Dynamic teaching!)
VABA's famous "Basketball Teaching" Curriculum will be implemented by our professional coaches!  Making it fun, but doing all we can to help the athletes learn and improve is always our priority!  

Days of the Week:
Summer camps always run Monday - Thursday.  Camps typically begin in the morning and run through the afternoon.  Lunch and water breaks are executed as per COVID protocols.  All activities will be outside, in the sunshine, and/or under very large shaded tent space.  

Dates, Registration and Early-bird Special (10% off!)
VABA camp dates will be published one-week prior to registration opening.  This information will be posted on our website and email directly to you!  VABA's early-bird special occurs in the first 14 days registration is open!

VABA summer camps and academies tend to sell out very quickly, and spots are limited based on the size of our venue. Also, check out VABA's very popular Specialty Mini-Camp series as well!  We've also expanded the age-groups for some of our camps to increase your family's options!

More detailed program information will be included in future emails!  


These are some of the very best summer basketball camps in the country - and, they're in our backyard right here in Charlottesville, VA!  Exciting, fun and productive - great teaching and training by professional coaches!  

We're looking forward to the BEST SUMMER IN VABA HISTORY!
