Training camp is an opportunity for the team to practice and prepare for their time playing together overseas. The team will be challenged through high ropes elements, group development activities, and around 4 practices during camp. Think summer camp meets NBC - campfires, high ropes course, team games, and basketball. NBC staff and travel team coaches will provide travel safety training and leadership training as well.

Doesn't Get Better Than This!
Going on Tour with NBC was an incredible adventure. As parents we encouraged our son and daughter to experience visiting another country to get a glimse of another culture and to represent NBC Camps and the USA. The NBC Tour experience in addition with the game of basketball will truly challenge the comitted athlete and the quality person. I truly believe this experience can be life changing as well as motivating! Basketball and traveling on Tour- it doesn't get any better than this!
