NBC Camps coaches are known for their hard work, great attitude, and commitment to helping you reach your potential on and off the court.  Our curriculum focuses on helping you master even the most difficult skills as well as developing leadership, mental toughness, and confidence.

The NBC Difference
Unlike other camp programs where skills training falls under the sole 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 DVD's, 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.

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.

Shooting and Attack Moves Camp focuses on basketball’s most crucial skill, shooting. At this camp NBC staff work with campers to gain greater depth as a shooter as well as honing offensive moves. The focus of this camp is to become an offensive threat on the court. All athletes receive video analysis of their shot, personal evaluation and drills and skills designed for improvement.

Complete Player Camps focus on the crucial keys to becoming a great player. We break our teaching into four focus areas: Individual offense, defense, shooting and team skills.  Campers are separated into teaching groups and teams based on their age and ability. These camps are not for the beginning basketball player. Athletes who attend must have a fair amount of experience and ability appropriate for 6 to 8 hours a day of basketball.  We recommend our junior camp option to younger or more beginner athletes.

Complete Player Camps are highly recommended and emphasis extensive skill development, intensity, enthusiasm, leadership, and team. Many athletes who have attended our program go on to play at the college level and beyond. NBC Camps full-time staff work year round to make NBC Camps the premier basketball camp in the world.  One of the highlights of this week is Intensity Night.  Enjoy tournaments, games, amazing staff who care about helping you become the best person you can be.

Still Love It!

This is the second year my kids have attended NBC Basketball Camps in Colorado and they still love it. I love what you teach on and off the court. It is just as important to hear how you should be a good person off the court as you should be on the court.
