NBC Basketball Day Camp at Ambrose University College

NBC Basketball Day Camp at Ambrose University College
NBC Basketball Day Camp at Ambrose University College

This Complete Skills Junior Basketball Day Camp is designed for the younger athletes ages 7-12. NBC Camps will offer two weeks of basketball camp this summer.

This basketball camp is designed for athletes to improve their game and have a fun time. We will focus on developing fundamental skills from shooting and attacking the basketball to ball handling and defense. The goal is to help build confidence in a fun and encouraging environment. Athletes ages 6-12 years old can come improve their skills during this 5-day basketball camp.

During this formative time, building skill mastery is crucial. It takes about 50-100 accurate repetitions over three days to learn a new skill. It takes about 2500 accurate repetitions over three weeks to undo a skill learned incorrectly. At NBC Camps, we believe it is worth the investment to help younger athletes learn a skill accurately. We also believe having fun is crucial for future passion. Our Intro camps combine great teaching, high energy, enthusiasm and tons of fun into a camp experience younger athletes will love.

Increased confidence

You gave my son the enthusiasm he needed to gain his never-quit attitude. His confidence has gone up, and he has learned some valuable skills. I'm also very happy that this was a Christian camp, so he learned more than just basketball.

  • 5/5.

 It is impressive when the coaches remember the names of campers from past years. The staff are excellent at keeping the kids motivated and striving to be the best.

Best camp my son has attended

I love the experienced, enthusiastic staff and the great staff to student ratios. I love the Christian values based approach, and the obvious care taken to plan the activities. NBC Camps are the best my son has ever attended - both in quality of instruction and quality of instructors. Please have an Ambrose College camp again next year!!
