Better version of himself
My son has been going to NBC for 3 years and absolutely loves it! It teaches way more than basketball. Each year he comes home a better version of himself. Keep it up!
I just wanted to send you a very big thank you for working with my son at VA on Sunday. He had a great workout. He was very tired and hungry after his afternoon of basketball. He has been in the gym 3 days now since working out with you, I can see a difference. Nothing magical, but just confidence. The level of workout, the number of guys to play against and getting direction from coaches that he has known for many years was so worth the 6 hours of driving. Today in the gym I watched him take it to the hoop against anyone who tried to stand in his way over and over. He took over the court like I knew he could, but now I think he knows he can too. I even watched him break out a couple of those moves under the hoop that you guys worked with him on. Of course, the guys in the gym went crazy and his confidence went up. I have been a very strong supporter of NBC Camps over the last 10 years, sending my kids to countless camps and spending thousands of dollars, but those few hours on Sunday were priceless!! Thanks again for spending that extra time!

Coach, Last weekend he played exactly as you would expect and the way you taught him, he was dominant inside and out, dribbling and rebounding. Averaged 30 per game, 14 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 blocked shots. He was asked to be on the AAU Traveling team. I guess the question on how he would stack up against his own was answered by himself. I wish you could have been there. I know that it is because of you and your coaches that he is getting to play at an elevated level. A number of coaches from their called and said they were very impressed by his overall play. He will be back with you soon. Thank you. Your program builds better ball players.
