Shooting and Attack Moves Camp focuses on basketball’s most crucial skill: shooting. At this camp NBC staff work with campers to gain greater depth as a shooter as well as honing offensive moves. The focus of this camp is to become an offensive threat on the court. All athletes receive video analysis of their shot, personal evaluation and drills and skills designed for improvement.
Complete Player - Competition Emphasis Basketball Camps
Competition Emphasis camps are a more advanced version of the standard Complete Player Camps. They are not all-star camps but those who attend these camps tend to be a little older, have been to other camps and want to compete at a higher level against good competition. Though the curriculum is similar we are able to advance a quicker pace than at our standard Complete Player Camps.
Complete Player camps offer overnight (complete program training) and extended day options for those who commute to and from camp each morning and evening.
NBC's Complete Player basketball curriculum is all encompassing to help athletes develop and master skills to play the game of basketball with excellence

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
I gained considerable skill improvement over the course of this week, and the encouraging attitude from all coaches are major contributing factors to this. I will definitely be returning next summer and whenever possible.
— Maddox G. Camper
Everything about this camp was extremely well organized, and they really made you feel at home while maintaining the "mentor" attitude towards the campers.
— Keri Y. Camper
I loved the coaches. Each and every coach was giving it their all, not only of a physical level, but on a social level; making it a great time.
— Ethan Y. Camper
Great leadership, They have a great sense of humour, It's so much fun to work hard and improve your skill when there's so many great coaches there. Just the best camp I've ever been to!!
— Mel G. Camper
All of the coaches were extremely professional, encouraging and helpful. I was very impressed with all of them.
— James H. Camper
The emphasis on character development and Christian principles is excellent. NBC is about so much more than improving bball skills, it is about becoming a better individual. The positive atmosphere and energy is fun to be around.
— Sarah W. Camper
The fact that it isn't 100% sports was really good for me -- they teach about life too; how to respect yourself and your relationships with others, as well as managing your time appropriately so that you are mentally and physically able to put 110% of everything you have into whatever activity you're doing. The coaches are really encouraging in and out of the gym, and are always available to listen if you need them to. It was an overall great experience that I wouldn't trade for the world - I learned a lot about myself, as well as how to improve my intensity on the court.
— Logan E. Camper
First camp experience - was a good one to start with! Coaches very encouraging and supportive, lots of fun to be with. Good with the kids.
— Kristy K. Parent
NBC camps commitment to my children and their future is amazing. They aren't there just for basketball, they're there to learn life lessons, to be good people, to surround themselves with good people. The coaches are amazing people not just awesome coaches.
— Claire E. Parent
The camp was awesome! I learned a lot, met amazing people, heard encouraging stories and the coaches were super encouraging. Give it a try, you won't regret it!
— Davante S. Camper
NBC runs a fantastic basketball camp that focuses on not only basketball skills but life skills as well. I absolutely love coming to camp to work hard, learn lots and hang out with people who love basketball like I do.
— Tara C. Camper
The camp is really good at promoting mental toughness and a positive attitude. I learned that being a good athlete is always being a leader on and off the court.
— Devin W. Camper
Going to camp was an amazing experience for me. All of the coaches were awesome and I cannot thank them enough. I would strongly recommend this camp!
— Lance P. Camper
Intense but fun
This camp was the most intense camp my son has been to. He had to work hard, but had a great time and learned a lot. Thank you.
— Debbie H. Parent
Best overall basketball experience
The absolute best overall basketball experience I have ever witnessed!! I am SO happy my son had this chance and we will definitely have him registered for next year!! Thank you!
— Wayne F. Parent
Just wanted to thank you and the fine staff for the wonderful week that my daughter had with you
— Petula H. Parent
Just wanted to thank you for an awesome camp. Kyler spoke very highly of the week. He enjoyed it so much he asked me if he could go next year. The nice thing is, although he loved the basketball and said he learned a lot, he said some of his favorite memories weren't about basketball. Just wanted to let you know that you and your team did an awesome job and hope to see you again.
— Joyce H. Parent
I wanted to tell you that Cierra LOVED the camp this year and raves about it!! She learned a lot - not just about basketball, but about being a leader on and off the court. It is one thing for a parent to teach their children about being a leader and how to treat others, but when a role model talks to them about it, I think it sinks in just a little bit more! I have to say that I am a huge supporter of what you and your staff do in your camps and would never hesitate recommending your camps to anyone!
— Sandie R. Parent
What is great about NBC is that they offer exceptional coaching and life skills. They show the kids how to work hard by having fun and inventing new ways to do the drills.
— Julia A. Camper
Intense learning experience
I have been bringing my kids to NBC Camps for over 12 years now and it is the greatest. I appreciate the positive attitude of all of the staff. It is an intense learning experience. Great skills, variety, athletic drive, and emotional well being are a priority. I can rest easy knowing that it's not a dating camp; girls and boys can focus on their sport rather than getting all emotional. Keep up the great work guys! I hope you continue to keep this basic formula for all of your camps.
— Gerald V. Parent
NBC is fantastic
NBC is a completely different camp experience than any camp I've been to before. It's fantastic. The coaches work really hard to bond the campers as a group not only through basketball but off-court activities as well. Not only does a camper improve as a basketball player, but as a leader, a teammate, and person, as well. The basketball drills are fun and informative and provide competitive means to improve your skills, and all the while your coaches fellow campers are cheering you on in a positive learning environment.
— Trina K . Camper
3 sons love camp
This is a anticipated camp by 3 of my children each year and we energetically support the camp my boys come home better people for attending!
— Trisha K. Parent
I recommend this camp to others because it not only helps you become a better basketball player but a better person and motivator. And it was a great experience.
— Tressa S. Camper
NBC camp this year was a fantastic experience. All of the coaches are awesome and really fun to hang out with. I know I grew not only as a basketball player but also a person. This year I got chosen to be awarded the MVP award. I thought that was pretty cool. I think NBC was excellent this year and I for sure coming back next year.
— Moriah R. Camper
Life changing experience
NBC camps have proven to be a life changing experience for our daughter. Even at the age of 11 she came home excited to share not only the skills she learned but the discussions that were had at the end of the day in D-groups. She loved her coaches and is dreaming of one day being part of the NBC coaching staff. Thank you so much for giving her such a positive experience!
— Jeff and Lara M. Parents
I definitely recommend this camp to anyone who loves basketball and would like to excel and learn new skills. The whole experience was positive and made me realize that I can do anything I set my mind to. There was no negative or demeaning done to the campers. All encouraging! Hope to return next year to learn more skills!
