N.O.D. Basketball Academy Summer Camps

New in 2020: N.O.D Basketball Academy is Going Online!


While the coronavirus pandemic has significantly impacted all our lives, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, we want to provide some sense of normalcy for our youth. With so many leagues, practice, and competitions on hold or cancelled, we know it’s tough on young athletes. 

But rather than focus on what we are missing, the coaches at N.O.D. see this as a unique opportunity for kids to really focus on getting better at the fundamentals of their sport. We are not cancelling our summer basketball camps; we are just modifying how we will run them. 

Many young players are unsure what to do – there’s nowhere to play, they don’t know what to work on, they aren’t motivated, and they don’t have anyone to push them. That’s what we are here for. 

Our mission this summer is to help kids have a happy and healthy start to their summers. What we are working on is creating an online camp; all your child will need is a ball and if possible a hoop (we can make some adjustments for those without a hoop).

During the camp hours, every 30 min coaches will be checking in live with the players through video. We’ll provide the campers live instruction, and then give them 15-20 minutes to practice on their own.
