2015 Never Too Late Basketball Weekend Camps Schedule

Playing basketball presents us with many opportunities. It is a game in which individual expression can flourish. It is a game where, when played well and with proper intention, can show exactly why working together brings success and good feelings. That's pretty much what we do at the NTL Weekend Camps: introduce, instruct, give you loads of feedback with your individual skills, put you in a team concept with a great coach, prepare a plan to evaluate you and make sure that when you go home to your leagues and pick-up games, that you have more knowledge, more skill, more appreciation for the game and your role in it. Plus we feed you really well, get you lots of rest, and make sure that the weekend is challenging, comfortable and fun amidst a group of new and old friends. Play Better, Play Forever. The Never Too Late Basketball Weekend Camps.

April 10-12, 2015 Lakeside Inn , Lakeside, MI $695 (all single rooms) NTL Lakeside MI Weekend Camp The camp that brought you Arne Duncan, Obama's Sec'y of Education, as one of the assistant coaches in 2000.

May 1-3, 2015 The Franciscan Inn , Santa Barbara, CA $695 with roommate/$895 w/out roommate) NTL Santa Barbara Weekend Camp What do you get yourself into when you come to the NTL camp in Santa Barbara? There is venerable Robertson Gym on the campus of UCSB, right where the Lakers' dynasty of the 80's practiced. We may not be Showtime, but we will run the break, take hundreds and hundreds of jumpers, (then jump in the Jacuzzi), pass and screen away, read the defense, (scan menus at numerous beach-side restaurants), and let the sweet scent of eucalyptus turn all of us into our own version of basketball Magic.
July 17-19, 2015
McMenamin's Grand Lodge, Forest Grove, OR $695 (all single rooms) NTL Portland, OR Weekend Camp If you love basketball, you will love it here. If you love someone who loves basketball, send them or better yet, bring them to Troutdale this year. State of the art gym, vineyard and micro-brewery on the premises. Tall trees, tall coaches. Remember Walton, Mo Lucas, Twardzik, Hollins? If not (or even if so), we will show you exactly what they did to make themselves better, make themselves the best. Highly skilled, no wasted motion, unselfish, intelligent, passionate basketball is what we are after here.
October 23-25, 2015 Race Brook Lodge, Sheffield, MA $695 with roommate/$895 w/out roommate We think all the camps are special; often as not, at the end of one of our weekend sessions, players who have been to multiple camps and coaches will approach one another and say "that was the best camp ever". It's likely to happen again here in Sheffield, October 2014. Here is what is certain: players will come ready to work as hard in the drills as they will the games, ask the right questions, try new things, share the ball, share memories and game plans, be competitive, be enouraged and encouraging, make new friends from around the basketball globe. And likely say: "coach, I know I've said this before, but this WAS the best camp ever."

*Single rooms in MI and OR, other camps have double occupancy choice (room with another camper); single rooms available at other camps at noted second price.

Day Camper Rates are also available ($495 - includes Saturday lunch, Sunday wrap-up Awards' lunch, but excludes lodging and other meals; everything else included. $475 - Sunday wrap-up Awards' lunch, but excludes Saturday lunch, lodging and breakfasts; everything else included).
