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 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.

Pure Shooting and Offensive Skills Camp 
This camp is designed to help athletes become excellent at basketball's most crucial skill as well as helping athletes become an unstoppable offensive force.  Every athlete at the Pure Shooting Camp receives video analysis and detailed instruction on shot mechanics and correction. Summer 2017 will see significant improvement in the execution of this camp and we are excited for the improvements to this important camp.

Crowell U Camps
There are only two positions in modern day basketball.  You are either a “guard” or a “forward/center.” If you are a guard you must master playing the point and the wing positions.  If you play big, you need to be effective at both the power forward or at center.  The Crowell University Basketball Camps are the best guard and post play camp because the teaching is based on over 50 years of basketball coaching experience.  Guards and post players are best educated when they recognize how to work together and also understand how to interchange positions when necessary.  Great point guards have sensational EQ (emotional intelligence) skills.  The ability to make others perform better is the most important point guard skill.  They will their teams to victory!  Great post players have three scoring moves that work consistently.  They know how to get open, receive the pass and know how to take advantage of their opponent.  The best ones can also dribble, pass and shoot.  If you are looking for a unique basketball camp that will challenge your understanding of the game, Crowell U Basketball Camps are for you.

Learned so much

What I liked about NBC Camps was that they gave us time to work on what we wanted to do. They made workouts fun. They did well on encouraging kids to keep going and telling us it's okay to stop if needed. They helped remind me of how important leadership is: making wise choices and becoming/being a leader.
