The NBC Difference
 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
• Finish the play
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

Camp was so awesome! Kids were saying how they learned so much. We really saw a big difference in the confidence of these kids! We just had a blast! The other coaches and I were talking about how the students who would shy away and not mingle with the rest of the kids started to join the group by the second day. By the third day everyone was interacting with each other and that was so nice. Community members would come in and watch and they would be so amazed at all the talent these kids have. All the kids that attended this camp got to shine bright like diamonds!

Quyana [Thank you] for being so patient with us! The kids of Kwethluk are very thankful and pleased with NBC Camps. I am pretty sure they will be talking about it for a while and I know that Coach Levi and Preston have made a big impact in the kid’s lives.

We are looking forward to working with NBC Camps again!

Life Changer

Thank you so much for coming out to Nelson Island School and working with our children.  The skills that you, Justin, and Katie teach go far beyond basketball skills.  In a few days, our children also have a stronger sense of ownership, responsibility, and respect for themselves, their fellow teammates, and their overall attitude towards life.  The message shared is also one of love.  As you share your talents and skills in basketball, you also share the message that each one of them is a valuable person in their own right.  Your ministry here is making a positive difference; you are truly changing lives.  Thank you for your hard work and all that you do.
