Crowell U Camps
There are only two positions in modern day basketball. You are either a “guard” or a “forward/center.” If you are a guard you must master playing the point and the wing positions. If you play big, you need to be effective at both the power forward or at center. The Crowell University Basketball Camps are the best guard and post play camp because the teaching is based on over 50 years of basketball coaching experience. Guards and post players are best educated when they recognize how to work together and also understand how to interchange positions when necessary. Great point guards have sensational EQ (emotional intelligence) skills. The ability to make others perform better is the most important point guard skill. They will their teams to victory! Great post players have three scoring moves that work consistently. They know how to get open, receive the pass and know how to take advantage of their opponent. The best ones can also dribble, pass and shoot. If you are looking for a unique basketball camp that will challenge your understanding of the game, Crowell U Basketball Camps are for you.

Learned so much
What I liked about NBC Camps was that they gave us time to work on what we wanted to do. They made workouts fun.
