2014 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 (drill, baby drill), 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.

|| 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.
|April 25-27, 2014
||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. The camp that brings you Pete Gaudet, Coach K's top assistant at Duke when they won two national championships. The camp that also features one of the top young coaches in America, former all-Indiana All-star and Valpo 4 year starter, Greg Tonagel. The Big Camp by the Big Lake that annually brings lovers of hoops from near and far to the sandy shores of soutwest Michigan. Post moves, videotaped shooting instruction, skills repeated in drills, offenses learned, defenses committed to, roles learned, scrimmages and games contested, play perfected. Plus it's a whole lot of fun.

|| 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.

||NTL Sheffield 2011 was a stunner. The weather sparkled, the basketball play shined. This group proved that basketball is an international language that can be spoken by all. You could tell from the focus in the drills, to the questions at the videotape reviews of the shooting drills, to the chatter at the breakfast tables, that this group was going to play the game the right way. The floor was spread on offense, screens were set, the ball moved. We made shots, we missed shots. We rebounded and picked each other up off the floor. We got together early Sunday afternoon following 11+ hours of on-court time and clapped and cheered for one another as the awards were presented to each and every deserving, if a bit weary, camper. We all look forward to this camp every year.
*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.
