CAMP DESCRIPTION

Complete Skills Junior Day Camps

These camps offer comprehensive skill training, games and life skills training within a 9am to 4pm time frame. These day camps are a perfect introduction for athletes into the NBC Camp program and offer a taste of NBC excellence at a pace and intensity more suitable for younger or more beginning athletes.

This basketball camp is designed for athletes to improve their game and have a fun time. We will focus on developing fundamental skills from shooting and attacking the basket to ball handling and defense. The goal is to help build confidence in a fun and encouraging environment at a pace more suitable for the younger athlete.

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 Intro camps combine great teaching, high energy, enthusiasm and tons of fun into a camp experience younger athletes will love.

Camp Questions & Answers

How are the 2 NBC Camps at Strathcona Christian different?

Both of the NBC Camps in Sherwood Park are Complete Skills Junior Basketball camps. By having different age groups for each of these camps our goal is to get a younger group of kids to the July 2-5 camp and steer more of the older elementary/middle school kids to the July 22-26. The first camp is also only 4 days.

    Absolutely loved it

    NBC is a camp where kids can learn so much more than just how to play basketball. All why learning to build wonderful relationships and how even when you are working you can have fun too. Never a dull moment and you so get what you pay for. My boy's at ages 8 and 11 absolutely loved it and are ready to go again.

    Worth every cent

    I cannot believe the confidence that my daughter has after attending the NBC camp. Her enthusiasm towards the game and practicing makes the investment in this camp worth every cent we paid. I would recommend this camp to all children and parents.

    Increased Confidence

    You gave my son the enthusiasm he needed to gain his never-quit attitude. His confidence has gone up, and he has learned some valuable skills. I'm also very happy that this was a Christian camp, so he learned more than just basketball.
