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.
TEACH BASKETBALL AND LIFE SKILLS AT A “WORLD CLASS” LEVEL

• Guard your heart
• Live with love & intensity
• Be smart by seeking out wisdom

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.

Flying into All-Star Camp?
Due to the increased volume of out-of-town campers for this week of camp, NBC Camps helps coordinate shuttle service. If you fly into the SPOKANE airport, an NBC representative will be waiting at the airport to greet you and help you coordinate your shuttle pick-up to the camp with other incoming athletes. The shuttle is pre-arranged by NBC CAMPS and can be purchased for $25 each way. A shuttle back to the airport at the end of the week will also be coordinated by NBC CAMPS. Payment should be submitted upon arrival to camp. Check (made out to NBC Camps) is preferred. Please no unaccompanied minors, check with the airlines before making arrangements.
You can provide your flight information when you register OR at any time up until two weeks before your camp. You will be contacted before your camp to confirm final travel arrangements.
1. NBC CAMPS coordinates the shuttle service, but does not assume responsibility for the actual transportation to and from the airport and an NBC REPRESENTATIVE may or not be in the vehicle.
2. In order to be met by a NBC representative and receive assistance with your transportation to the camp, you will need to arrive the morning that your camp begins (preferably between 9:00am and 11:15am and the shuttle will depart by Noon), as the camp check-in begins at 12:30pm. We are not able to assist you if you arrive a night early. Your return flight home should depart after 5pm on the final day of your session. If you have a late arrival or early departure on the final day, we may be able to assist you, but there may be an additional fee.
3. If there are less than 4 campers that are in need of transportation assistance on a given start/end date, we reserve the right to coordinate other shuttle arrangements with the family.
Please coordinate all flight information with the Camp Director John Fazio at firstname.lastname@example.org subject: uca camp airport shuttle
