We select outstanding people we believe are of high integrity and character, work ethic and willingness to pour their lives into helping athletes be their best. We work hard to hire college players and coaches, along with high school coaches who are dynamic and competent teachers of the game.


The NBC Difference
Unlike other camp programs where skills training falls under the expertise of the camp director, NBC Camps has built a program of training to help each camper walk out of camp a better player and person.  Our site directors work as event managers helping to run a great week of camp and facilitating the implementation of our specific camp expectations.   Our basketball instruction is based on skill curriculum and talent development we believe are essential to take your game to the next level.   Though coaching styles and drills may change, our master teachers receive DVDs, lesson plans, and detailed training on how to maximize this week of camp.  Coaching at camp is much different than coaching a team.  With over 40 years experience, our goal is to give you the best basketball and life skills instruction possible.

 

TEACH BASKETBALL AND LIFE SKILLS AT A “WORLD CLASS” LEVEL
Coach the game at a world-class level.  FAB 4
• Protect the ball
• Play with quickness and intensity
• Play Smart
• Finish the play

 

Teach by living valuable skills for life.   LIFE 4
• Guard your heart
• Live with love & intensity
• Be smart by seeking out wisdom
• Finish strong, never give up

TEC Method
The ability to know, understand and apply is the heart of NBC’s Teach, Encourage, Correct method.  True teaching takes place when the student knows how to reproduce the skill and self-correct the skill when it is wrong.

Best camp my son has attended

I love the experienced, enthusiastic staff and the great staff to student ratios. I love the Christian values based approach, and the obvious care taken to plan the activities. NBC Camps at Ambrose University are the best my son has ever attended - both in the quality of instruction and quality of instructors. Please have an Ambrose University camp again next year!!

Increased confidence

You gave my son the enthusiasm he needed to gain his never-quit attitude. His confidence has gone up, and he has learned some valuable skills. I'm also very happy that this was a Christian camp, so he learned more than just basketball.
