Position Specific Camps: Guard, Wing and Post
July 8-12, 2013
These camps differ from our intermediate/advanced basketball camps in that athletes are divided into specific positions: points, wings and posts. This training is much more detailed for each specific position. Athletes select one position for the week to study. Posts, wings, and point guards then combine in the afternoon for competitive tournaments and games.
- Columbia Place features one of the premier gymnasiums in BC.
- CBC has an amazing cafeteria. Great food every meal.
- Outstanding college coaches and players staff this camp and truly care about each child who attends.
- Multiple leagues assuring each camper is in the right group, learning and competing at the level they need.
- The CBC campus is small and off site gyms are very close so kids spend their time on the court instead of walking or riding a bus.
Columbia Bible College is located in beautiful city of Abbotsford, BC. The dining facility, dorm rooms and beautiful college gym are perfect for a great camp environment. Campers will be staying in very nice residential dorms. Each room accommodates two campers, with nearby private shower facilities. These rooms do not have linen and bedding provided and not air-conditioned and we suggest you bring a fan.
You do not need to request a roommate before camp begins. When you sign up for a room, have your preferred roommate with you. If you have no preference, we will match you with someone of the same gender and similar age. The college food service provides multiple all-you-can-eat entrees for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

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.
