2016 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 8-10, 2016 Lakeside Inn , Lakeside, MI $695 (all single rooms) NTL Lakeside MI Weekend Camp NTL Lakeside MI Weekend Camp. On the shores of Lake Michigan we bring you the NTL Weekend Camp where WE GET IT DONE! People ask all the time about the differences in the camps. NTL Lakeside has always struck us as the camp where the toughest questions are asked; the drills and skills covered maybe a little more Greg Popovich/San Antonio Spurs-like; the on-the-floor time focused; plus, the food is to rave about and the Saturday night all-camp dinner is when the basketball stories run deep into the Michigan night. Greg Tonagel, the former all-Indiana prep and Valporaiso star who is the wildly successful coach of the Indiana Wesleyan Wildcats (2014 NAIA National Coach of the Year) headlines the outstanding staff. Lakeside Inn itself is historic and cozy. A basketball weekend revisited by campers year-after-year. Not to be missed.
Apr 29 - May 1, 2016 The Franciscan Inn , Santa Barbara, CA $695 with roommate/$895 w/out roommate) NTL Santa Barbara Weekend Camp 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 the drills are focused, the competition sharp, the camaraderie tight. Of the 32 players attending last year, 19 had been there before and the other 13 swore they were coming back (many times back). The Sunday afternoon NTL/Adidas Reminds-Us-Of-Awards acknowledge the skills and effort and basketball personalities of our players. Everybody leaves basketball thrilled.
July 22-24, 2016
McMenamin's Grand Lodge, Forest Grove, OR $795 (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 21-23, 2016 Race Brook Lodge, Sheffield, MA $695 with roommate/$895 w/out roommate NTL Sheffield 2015 rocked the house. Players from CA, Calgary, The United Kingdom, New Orleans, Maryland, NY, NJ, Nebraska, MA and NH practiced and played hard. The highlights? Definitely the individual videotaped shooting instruction (offered at every camp); without a doubt the skills' stations (ball handling, post play, pick&roll, shooting); can't leave out the team defensive segments; and the get-after-'em coached scrimmages with full NBA-style box score stats. Sheffield is an amazingly beautiful town and Race Brook Lodge a unique and wonderful accommodation. All the amenities are in perfect place to let you concentrate on all the great basketball practiced and played.
