NLAB Sports hosts free basketball camp

On Saturday September 23rd, we hosted a FREE basketball camp at The Water of Life Community Church in Fontana. The camp was for ages 8-18 and co-ed. This was a wonderful time for parents and community members to see what NLAB Sports was all about. We had kids from all skill levels attend the camp. The athletes were put through many drills to test the strength and conditioning as well as their basketball skill sets.

At the end of the camp NLAB coaches mentored the athletes on the importance of education and how to utilize sports as a tool and a motivator. One of the highlights of the camp was the athletes had opportunities to play 1 on 1 against the coaches and if they scored, they won a prize. Check out all the photos from the camp here.

8- Week Summer Basketball & Agility Camp

This was a busy summer for the NLAB team. We formed a wonderful partnership with The Institute for Precision in Movement which is a performance and physical therapy facility located in San Bernardino. In the middle part of June we launched our 8-week summer basketball and agility program. The program was co-ed, ages 8-18 years old and was designed for all skill levels. The Precision In Movement team focused on the strength and agility portion and we focused on basketball. Here is a message from Pete Lingas (owner of Precision In Movement):

We had the pleasure of partnering with NLAB Sports for the 8-week Basketball Skills and Agility Camp this summer. It was such an honor to have worked with such a talented NLAB team. Each of their team members were passionate about their craft. More importantly, it was apparent that each coach committed themselves to the kids and provided the best level of coaching and mentorship with the campers. To see our facility packed with kids, parents and coaches who all were eager to learn and share their love for basketball was a blessing and a dream come true. We hope to be able to continue to serve and connect with anyone or any organization who would like to invest in their communities and their future.
— Pete Lingas (Precision In Movement Owner)

NLAB Sports hosts youth basketball skills clinic

On Saturday June 4th, NLAB hosted a youth basketball skills clinic at the Highland YMCA. This was a co-ed clinic ages 8-14 years old. The basketball clinic was facilitated by former and current college coaches and players from the surrounding areas. There were a total of 11 coaches and players from Riverside Community College and La Verne. The gym was jam packed with a total of 60+ kids that attended the clinic. NLAB was proudly sponsored by Gatorade and the kids all received Gatorade bottles and Gatorade towels. We also had many kids sponsored by the hard work of an individual(s) from the San Bernardino School district.  The cost of the clinic was $20. The kids also received a NLAB Sports bag and a t-shirt.  At the end of the clinic the kids were fed pizza and Gatorade beverages.

The basketball clinic was extremely organized and well thought out. The coaches had the kids in all sorts of drills. These drills included ball handling, shooting, lay-up, defense and more. The kids were very excited to learn from the coaches.  “I was never taught how to do a proper lay-up” said one of the kids. This is special to hear because our goal was to teach the basics, so the athletes could walk away and feel like they learned something.  The coaches had a mentoring session were they would talk to the kids about life, education and the importance of good grades. At the end of the clinic, former Los Angeles Clipper player Keith Closs came out to talk to the kids about life and athletics. The kids were truly inspired and motivated by his story.  The feedback from parents were nothing but positive. They were excited to see their kids learning the game of basketball.  NLAB will be hosting future clinics in various sports. Please follow us on our site for updates.
