The Mavs Academy’s number one priority is the safety of our campers, staff, and community. Mavs Academy will continue to monitor the guidelines from various government orders, health experts and the NBA to develop appropriate protocols (which may include social distancing, mask wearing, and sanitization) for our camps. Additional information will be provided to registered campers via email.
Please indicate if your child has a medical condition or allergy during the registration process. We will make a note and share that information with the camp director.
All Summer Hoop Camps will have a certified athletic trainer on site throughout the entirety of camp to help with preventative measures, immediate care for injuries and other medical conditions. The parent or guardian listed on the registration form will be contacted if there is a serious injury or illness.
Register online at mavs.com/academy, click the camp link, select the camp date you wish to register for, then complete the form.
Please contact MavsAcademy@DallasMavs.com as soon as possible.
Camp costs will be customized to each type of camp. All camp costs are noted on the registration page as a part of the camp description.
There are no discounts offered at this time.
Yes, if the registration link is still active on our website but the camp is full, you can still register and automatically be added to the waiting list. If the registration link has been removed, then you can contact us at MavsAcademy@DallasMavs.com to be added to the list. Please specify the camp name, date and location.
Players who do not meet the minimum registration age are asked to refrain from registering in that particular session. We are more than happy to have that player attend a session that fits his/her registration age.
The registration information on our website for each program lists the age requirements. The participant’s age on the first day of camp will be the age used.
Registration closes for all camps seven days prior to the first day of camp to allow time to plan a quality camp experience.
Walk-up registrations are accepted ONLY if the camp is NOT sold out. The parent/guardian must fill out and submit the registration form and payment upon walk-up.
We understand that plans change, and situations happen. If you need to cancel a registration for any reason, please email MavsAcademy@DallasMavs.com with the camper name, camp name, camp date, and camp location and we will help take care of your needs. If you need to talk through your options, please provide the best number and time to contact you.
Mavs Academy will not cancel programs due to seasonal, weather-related conditions. However, in the case of extreme weather, Mavs Academy may cancel or postpone events for the safety of the campers. Our Youth Basketball Coordinator will notify parents via email for all cancellations and provide all necessary details at least eight hours prior to camp. In the rare event of a cancellation during a camp, we will send an email to each parent during camp confirming the early cancellation. Your child will not be left alone, and we will stay with each camper until all parents have picked them up. We will make every effort to reschedule cancelled events. Upon reschedule, if for any reason you cannot attend a rescheduled date, a full refund will be issued, or a credit given to a future camp.
We strongly encourage one parent or guardian to be with the child on the first day of camp for check-in. After the first day, campers can be dropped off up to 30 minutes prior to the start of camp. Camper supervision is not guaranteed any earlier.
Check-in on the first day of camp begins one hour prior to the start of camp. Orientation and camp introductions will take place on the first day of the start of camp and last approximately 15 minutes.
Coaches will be available to supervise the gym 30 minutes prior to the start of camp. We do not offer any post-camp programs. We ask that all campers are picked up promptly at the scheduled end of camp each day.
Camp hours vary based on type of camp session. See the information for each camp on the registration page for more details.
Please note that space may be limited. The design of the camp facility and current COVID protocols will determine the number of non-participants that are allowed to stay for the camp. You will receive an email the week prior to your camp with the guidelines but we will always allow at least one parent per family group to stay. We recommend that parents who stay to watch primarily observe and refrain from coaching or giving ongoing feedback during the session. Many times, players get confused and it may cause additional disruption.
The camp description on the registration page will list the required items. For most camps, a water bottle and appropriate basketball shoes will be required. Full day camps will require campers to bring their own lunch. Please mark all personal items with your name and phone number.
Normally we ask campers to not bring a ball. You will receive an email the week prior to your camp with current COVID protocols that will indicate if campers are required to bring their own ball. Balls provided by the camp will be sanitized often.
No. Each camper must bring his/her own lunch. A 20-30 minute lunch break will be provided, and all campers must remain on site during this time. We also ask that campers do not share lunches due to potential food allergies.
Player appearances are never guaranteed and are subject to player availability.
If someone other than a legal parent or guardian will be picking up your camper, please let the camp director know the details when you drop off the camper.
The address for each camp location is on our website in the registration details so that you may look up directions.
If your camper must bring an inhaler, other medical supplies or medication, please let the camp staff know during check in on the first day. You may be directed to speak with the trainer or camp director.
Campers will always walk away from the last day of camp with something. Each camp varies on what is handed out, but the following camps have guaranteed items:
Hoop Camp: Mavs Academy reversible jersey, player evaluation
Development Camp: Mavs Academy reversible jersey and shorts
Most coaches and site directors are local high school and middle school coaches. We also use some college students who aspire to be coaches. All camps have the oversight of full-time Dallas Mavericks staff who develop and implement the camp drills and programming along with making sure that all coaches are trained and follow the standards of Mavs Academy.
Mavs Academy brings the excitement of the NBA to your community and is the most-trusted source for basketball, dance, and gaming for all skill levels. Our team of professional Mavs Academy coaches share leadership skills, health tips, and encourage your student-athlete to have fun while they learn! Our goal is to provide every participant with quality instruction that focuses on the FUNdamentals and instills our values of Character, Respect, Authenticity, Fairness, Teamwork and Safety.
