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

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.

Complete Skills Basketball Day Camps are designed to instill a love for basketball to young athletes. Shooting, passing, dribbling, defense and individual scoring techniques are taught in an atmosphere of encouragement, enthusiasm and fun. Our coaches love kids and create an environment where each child feels valued and is excited to work hard and get better. During this formative time, building skill mastery is crucial. It takes about 50-100 accurate repetitions over three days to learn a new skill. It takes about 2500 accurate repetitions over three weeks to undo a skill learned incorrectly. At NBC Camps, we believe it is worth the investment to help younger athletes learn a skill accurately. We also believe having fun is crucial for future passion. Our junior camps combine great teaching, high energy, enthusiasm and tons of fun into a camp experience younger athletes will love.

Camp Questions & Answers
Should my child attend the Destiny day camp or the overnight NBC Camp in Olds?
If your child is in the age range for camps in Red Deer as well as Olds then consider their passion for the sport. For kids who simply enjoy playing basketball and would maybe like to get a little better and enjoy a week with their friends the Destiny camp is a great option. If you have a child who loves basketball and is willing to work hard to get better I would recommend sending them to Olds or one of our other overnight experiences. For many the small group size at NBC Destiny Christian is a positive. The Olds camps are bigger. The competition level is also higher at the overnight camps but much of the basketball drills and games will be similar to what is taught at NBC day camps.
