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.

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.

Camp Details

Crowell U Camps
The best players in modern day basketball are well rounded.  Not only can they play offense and defense, they are in incredible physical condition and they are versatile.  More importantly, the best players have a mind for the game with incredible mental toughness.  The Crowell University TOTAL PLAYER camp is second to none because the teaching is based on over 50 years of basketball coaching experience.  Guards and post players are best educated when they recognize how to work together and also understand how to interchange positions when necessary.  Great players have sensational EQ (emotional intelligence) skills.  They possess the ability to make others perform better (an important team leadership skill).  They WILL their teams to victory!  Great players have "go-to" scoring moves that work consistently.  They know how to get open, receive the pass and know how to take advantage of their opponent.  The best players can also dribble, pass and shoot.  Further, no matter your position, the best players know how to train like a champion to push themselves to the limit in practice and training so that the game seems easy!  Finally, the best players are playing for a reason bigger than themselves; they have MEANING and PURPOSE (MP) in their lives on and off the court.  If you are looking for a unique basketball camp that will improve your skills, challenge your understanding of the game, push your mental toughness and conditioning level, and help you grow as a person, Crowell U- TOTAL PLAYER camp is for you!

New to Camp!

I'm new to camp and as I learn things I see "NO" needed improvements. Fellowship with roommates, other campers, staff  and learning new skills that I can apply to my regular basketball game away from camp.

Shannon W Parent

  • 5/5.

My boys love NBC basketball camps! I would like to let you know how amazing the athletic trainer was for my son at camp.  He sprained his ankle and she took fantastic care of him and was in consistent communication with my husband and I.  I truly can't thank her & NBC camps enough for her awesome care.  Because she was so diligent with icing, elevating, advil, and keeping him off it by the time he came home he was walking no problem.  It is hard being far away from you child when they get hurt but I knew he was in good hands with her.  Thanks again!!

Next year!

It was my first camp so I wasn't sure what to do or expect. Everyone was so nice and didn't make fun of me when I messed up or didn't know what to do. I really learned a lot and can't wait for next year!

Loved camp

I loved the teaching and the coaches leading us through great basketball skills development training. I feel the only area of improvement would be the food. Otherwise, excellent job in developing team unity, positive thinking and attitude on and off the court.

NBC has great coaches, great enthusiasm and nice kids. The room is fine and both my girls liked the food. They loved the strong encouragement of the coaches.

Braeden B.Camper Complete Player

  • 5/5.

Roger was very inspirational. Outstanding leader. I earned the Golden Ruler this year. I was challenged to achieve which made me appreciate the award even more. I improved my basketball skills and am motivated to practice more consistently, but more importantly NBC helped me refocus priorities and build my character. This is my third year and I look forward to camp each time. NBC is fantastic!

Parent of Ethan R.Parent Complete player

Needed this camp

The whole premise of making the kids better first is what I think NBC does so well. Using basketball as the vehicle. NBC also shows the kids they can work harder and challenge themselves, push themselves to new limits. It was exactly what my son needed!

Great job

NBC Camps coaching was excellent, the organization of registration and schedules were well done. NBC did a great job teaching being a great person, having integrity and good values are important. The instruction of the whole person as an athlete was taught well-- not enough coaches stress this anymore and NBC Camps does a great job. My son is coming back.
