Complete Skills Junior Day Camps focus on the important keys for young athletes to learn the game of basketball. These camps are specifically designed for younger athletes who are newer to the game. The intensity, curriculum, and the schedule are more conducive for younger players and we highly recommend these camps as a starting point before coming to an overnight camp or specialty day camp. We break our teaching into four focus areas: individual offense, defense, shooting and team skills. Campers are separated into teaching groups based on their age and skill level. Some of these camps will have a greater emphasis on ball handling and/or shooting skills (see camp schedule for details).
INSTRUCTION, EQUIPMENT & OTHER
Ratio: approximately a 1:10 staff to camper ratio
Groupings: Campers are grouped by age, skill, and experience.
Equipment Needed: Players should supply their own athletic equipment and have at least one pair of well broken-in basketballs (court) shoes. Campers do need to bring their own basketball (clearly labeled with their name). Visit our Camp Packing List for a full list of what to bring. NBC Camps is NOT responsible for lost or stolen items.

Staff NBC Coaching Staff
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.View Full Coaching Staff's Bio ⟩
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 resources, lesson plans, and detailed training on how to maximize the camp experience. Coaching at camp is much different than coaching a team. With 50 years of successful history, our goal is to give you the best basketball and life skills instruction possible.

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 necessary.
