NBC Camps Kicks off Fall Basketball Training in Spokane, WA

NBC Spokane Varsity Academy starts Fall training September 17, 2017.  NBC Camps offers training for athletes who want to enter the basketball season physically and mentally prepared for success. NBC Camps Varsity Academy, the creation of NBC Camps founder Fred Crowell, was designed to give athletes effective training during the off-season. Fall is the prime time to get in shape and to polish up key areas of the game such as shooting, ball handling, creating opportunities to score, and learning to maintain confidence during the early team selection process.  Hundreds of athletes have attended NBC Varsity Academy including Spokane women’s basketball legend and University of Tennessee standout Angie Bjorklund, former Eastern Washington University sharpshooter Parker Kelly, and Gonzaga star post player/overseas pro Heather Bowman.  Many others have gone onto play college basketball.

The Varsity Academy schedule has expanded this year as it will offer up to three nights per week of training.  Division 1 is for designed high school athletes ages 14-18. Training offers an intensive supervised opportunity to train with other strong players, get insights from great coaches and get mentally prepared for the opening of the season.  Division 2 is for athletes ages 9-13 where coaches focus on quality repetitions, great fundamentals, leadership and skill elevation.  Sundays and Tuesdays are all basketball directed by NBC Camp full time staff members John Fazio and Shawn Stetson, while Thursday gym times will have a speed and agility focus run by personal trainer Jesse Henderson. 

For NBC Vice President and Kansas State standout Danny Beard believes intentional training during the crucial months before basketball season could be the difference maker in your season. “Confidence in your skills and in your leadership is a huge advantage when you step on the court the first day of practice. Players who are intense, focused, ready to play are going to get the attention of the coach and the respect of the team,” says Coach Beard.
