Nothing But Skills is not a AAU team and does not offer teams. NBS is the most competitive basketball school in the state of NJ. Started in September in 2001. NBS has produced hundreds of young men and woman who had come on to play basketball at the D1 level and many more at the Division 2 and 3 level. Nothing But Skills is about long term development. We believe all players develop at different speeds, but all players must work hard and be dedicated to the long team development which NBS offers. We believe that all players should build self esteem and confidence. NBS will NEVER TURN AWAY a athlete due to financial reasons…EVER. We believe if you want to improve we will help you do it. The NBS MOTTO is a DREAM IS WORK… ITS OK TO DREAM BUT YOU MUST DO THE WORK TO LIVE THE DREAM.
