Total Basketball Camp - Canada’s Elite Basketball Camp

NBC TOTAL, hosted at Prairie College, in Three Hills, Alberta is for serious athletes with their goals of playing college basketball. Join other elite high school players from all over Western Canada who are committed to being their best.

This 6-day premier basketball camp is the choice for talented, older players who have been to other camps and are ready for a greater challenge. NBC TOTAL coaches are all former or current post-secondary players as well as top NBC Camp coaches with great experience, energy and skill. Campers receive training in leadership, strength and conditioning, nutrition, sports psychology and advanced basketball coaching. The camp closes with college coaches visiting the camp, looking to recruit and a tournament where NBC TOTAL athletes play against college teams. Last year we hosted coaches and/or teams from Mount Royal University, Olds College, St. Mary's University, The University of Calgary, Briercrest College, Prairie College, Red Deer College and Ambrose University; and the number of schools continues to grow each year.

Because TOTAL is our premier camp, only our premier coaches are invited to coach.  These are coaches who have played at a high level and/or coach elite basketball.

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.


Coach the game at a world class level.  FAB 4
• Protect the ball
• Play with quickness and intensity
• Play Smart

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.

Loved it!

We knew that this was your top camp in Canada so we knew it would be a good experience based on our other NBC experiences. This camp so far exceeded anything we could have hoped for. I cannot thank you enough for what you have given my son! Based on what we saw and why Alex shared I could write a small book!
