2023 NBC CALGARY BASKETBALL CAMPS
Complete Skills Junior Basketball Day Camp
Dates: Check out dates for Webber Academy
Age Group: Boys and Girls 7-11 years old
Daily Times: 9am-3pm
Campers will need to bring a bag lunch and their own basketball each day of camp.
Complete Skills Day Camps focus on the whole aspect of the game of basketball. Our basketball training is broken down into four focus areas: Individual offense, defense, shooting and team skills. Campers are separated into teaching groups and teams based on their age and ability.
Complete Skills Junior Day Camps
These camps offer comprehensive skill training, motivation and leadership training, and intensity station all 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 basketball to ball handling and defense. The goal is to help build confidence in a fun and encouraging environment. Athletes ages 7-12 years old can come improve their skills during this 5-day basketball camp.
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.
Live Action Game Focus
This camp is designed for junior athletes who have the basic basketball concepts. This camp still focuses on fundamental skill training but spends more time working to integrate those skills into organized basketball competition.

— Tara S. Parent
NBC camps are very fun and are set apart by their character education of virtues. GREAT WORK!!!!!!!!! Thanks.
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.
— Dave W. Parent
It is impressive when the coaches remember the names of campers from past years. The staff are excellent at keeping the kids motivated and striving to be the best.
— Heidi M. Parent
Best camp my son has attended
I love the experienced, enthusiastic staff and the great staff to student ratios. I love the Christian values based approach, and the obvious care taken to plan the activities. NBC Camps are the best my son has ever attended - both in quality of instruction and quality of instructors. Please have an Ambrose College camp again next year!!
— Heather P. Parent
This camp fosters team spirit, great individual attitudes, well balanced ball players rather than just skills.
