Camper Reviews


  • 5/5.

Today in the gym I watched him take it to the hoop against anyone who tried to stand in his way over and over.  He took over the court like I knew he could, but now I think he knows he can too.  I even watched him break out a couple of those moves under the hoop that you guys worked with him on.  Of course the guys in the gym went crazy and his confidence went up.
I have been a very strong supporter of NBC Camps over the last 10 years, sending my kids to countless camps and spending thousands of dollars, but those few hours on Sunday were priceless!!   Thanks again for spending that extra time!

Builds better players

Coach, Last weekend he played exactly as you would expect and the way you taught him, he was dominant inside and out, dribbling and rebounding. Averaged 30 per game, 14 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 blocked shots.  He was ask to be on the AAU Traveling team.  I guess the question on how he would stack up against his own was answered by himself.  I wish you could have been there. I know that it is because of you and your coaches that he is getting to play at a elevated level.  A number of coaches from their called and said they were very impressed by his overall play.  He will be back with you soon.  Thank you.  Your program builds better ball players.

Loves it!

My son has always been an aggressive player and I have been working with him to always show good sportsmanship.  It hasn't been until he began attending the NBC camps and VA that he has finally gotten it.  You coaches have been such positive role models for him.  I appreciate the positive influence that he gets at the NBC camps and VA.  He finds the camp challenging and more importantly he enjoys being around not only the people that are attending but also those running the camp.  He is looking forward to attending the Spring session and is also trying to recruit some players to join. Thanks again for all you do and I look forward to working with you and VA this Spring.
