Who Coaches NTL?

2021-22 Camps and Clinics Coaches

WC = Weekend Camps; WPP = Weekly Practice Programs

Steve Bzomowskibasketball_icon-orange
(WPP, BOS; all camps)

Founder and Chief Head Honcho at NTL was an assistant mens’ basketball coach at Harvard University from 1984-1991. Part-time scout for the newly minted Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA after leaving Harvard. Previous to his college and pro experiences he was a junior high school and high school English teacher and boys’ basketball coach in the Greater Boston area. Played his basketball at Shaker High School in Albany, NY and (briefly) collegiately at Fordham University in NYC. He seems to enjoy helping individuals improve their basketball skills. When people get better at something, it makes them happier. Maybe that’s why he coaches; likes being around happy people.

1800+ point scorer at Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU). Known from Jonesboro, IN to Santa Barbara, CA to Sheffield, MA as “The Shot Doctor” (for his legendary videotaped shooting diagnoses and prescriptions).

Three-time captain and former assistant coach at Tufts University women’s basketball, a juggernaut that had a record of 88-10 and three straight Final Four appearances.
