Justin Conway | Former Princeton University team captain

Coach Jimmy Johnson | Eddyville, Kentucky

Megan Murphy | Clinton Corners, New York

“I wanted to drop you a note and tell you how impressed I was with every aspect of the program. From your leadership to your instructors, I believe you have made a positive impact both on my son as well as me. I will admit to coming to PGC as a coach and thinking I wouldn’t learn much. I have been to a lot of “camps” in my time and thought this would primarily be good for my son. There are not many times that I think I got more than I paid for, but as far as I am concerned you couldn’t charge enough for the experience we both had. I believe it will change my son’s life as well as my own. I am going to use SCHAPE with all of my teams and we have instituted its principals in my own home!”

Sean O’Neil, Hudson | Hudson, New Hampshire

Any player who wants to have a serious chance to play college basketball—especially at the 'D1' level—needs to attend PGC. Going to PGC is the smartest move you can ever make.

Meredith Pruden | Wilson, North Carolina

“I have gone to many different basketball camps, and there is absolutely no camp that can even hold a candle to PGC. I have never met anybody in my life that I respect more than you, Coach D. You know exactly what you are talking about, and you are the smartest person I know when it comes to basketball.”

Helpful Seeing Coaches Manage Players With Differing Skill Levels
the camp was obviously full of players with differing skill levels. It was helpful to see the coaches working through this on court. It was also very helpful to have ideas on how to extend drills for higher level players. I attended this camp with our 3rd son to go through PGC. It was my first time, but I was familiar with many of the principles as PGC is spoken of often in our household. the principles apply to so many things. My husband (a multiple time attender) uses the principles and language of PGC in leading our boys. My older sons use the principles and language in their college and work lives now. the leadership concepts are timeless and applicable across life. I love that my boys get those through practicing them in a game we all love.
Raised Court Awareness
Micah Gatewood expressed how much the camp gave him more options for being in position to score the ball. After the camp he said, “i can not wait to get on the court to use what I learned. He broke down S.C.H.A.P.E when he got into the car and his insights were incredible, especially how he made it relevant to how he could apply it immediately, on and off the court. Lastly, although he hurt his wrist the 2nd day, the PGC Staff used him as a coach for the week. This has lit a fire for coaching inside of Micah and he expressed, “I know I needed to think about life after basketball. I really like coaching and I think this is another option.” He even expressed joining PGC as an intern.
Paige is Still Reviewing her Notes!
Paige was extremely impressed with the whole camp. She took so much away from the classroom aspect of your camp. She was already typing her notes into her computer last night to refresh herself with everything she learned. She loved the court action as well and overall came away feeling like a much more complete basketball player. Thanks for everything. She is so excited about the camp that she already wants me to sign her up for your Playmaker camp next year and also PGC camp again.
He Went Injured and Still Learned a Lot
My son was injured before camp started as he fractured a finger in a basketball game a few weeks prior. He was not sure if he would get much out of the camp with him being injured, but that could not have been farther from the truth. This was his third PGC camp and I think that he may have gotten more out of this one than the other two when he wasn't injured. He loved the coaches and the environment and is looking forward to his next PGC camp. Thank you!
Leadership Content Was Outstanding And Can Be Applied In All Aspects Of Life
This experience allowed me to see different ways of implementing key concepts and skills that players at all levels can use to better their game. Quick mental queues that will allow players to refocus and do what they were taught. the leadership content was outstanding and can be applied in all aspects of life, not just basketball. I will be applying these concepts and manipulating them to fit my professional career.
Gave Me A Wealth Of Knowledge
Adding a wealth of knowledge especially to my weaknesses, but overall will improve my coaching approach. While we already introduced a curriculum through classroom lessons, this course has given me more content and ideas so I can continue expanding my curriculum. the biggest takeaway for our upcoming season will be focused on replicating the energy that PGC was able to create here.
Pushed Me Out Of My Comfort Zone Many Times
PGC was really helpful and pushed me out of my comfort zone many times. I learned a lot about basketball strategies on and off the court. My only recommendation for improvement was to have more organized order of topics for the classroom session (like cover all of a certain topic, etc leadership, on one day rather than giving us a little bit of info on it every day).
It Helped Renew My Energy To Keep Coaching
PGC resonates with my natural coaching philosophy and thus legitimizes my instincts, while giving me the vocabulary and confidence to follow them more fully. (Gamefying, positivity, larger purpose of building cultural leaders rather than merely skilled players) It also helped renew my energy to keep coaching, even in potentially more challenging situations.
This Experience Was Incredible
This experience was incredible. the energy, curriculum, and staff was all the best it could possibly be. Everything was extremely organized, thoroughly thought out, and executed well. Everyone was a leader by the end of the camp, and it's truly remarkable how an encouraging environment can result in such a change in players, in such a short amount of time.
Blakelee Sherwood
This week has meant so much to me, it's been a blast. It has honestly changed my life on and off the court and it changed my perspective. I also learned 'deadly sins to avoid', like being creepy and wishful thinking. Another thing I learned is we can change our beliefs. What I'm trying to say is this was the best week ever.
He Poured Everything He Could Into the Athletes
The way Chad taught and explained himself fully and just poured everything he could into the athletes just inspires me. The way he broke down film so easily with no hesitation was definitely something I would love to be able to do in the future! I cannot wait to come back - as an athlete a bi or a OC again!
I Love Coming to PGC
I love coming to PGC. This is by far the best camp I have ever been to, I love getting to learn and think the game here with these amazing coaches. I will always remember all of the awesome people I get to meet here at these camps. The energy and encouragement that we all bring at these camps is remarkable.
So Welcoming!
It was very good, learned a lot of new things to take back with me. Although it is a basketball camp, they teach you things that apply to all aspects of life. The PGC environment is so welcoming and makes you play harder and better. Also you meet new people that help you become better
Basketball was awesome, dorms not so much
Dorms weren’t great but the basketball was awesome
I Wanted to Quit Basketball But Not Anymore...
I went into PGC expecting to stop playing basketball after my freshman year (I’m going into 9th this year but I came out enjoying the game so much more and with a much clearer understanding. I can’t wait to apply everything I learned to games and practice at home.
She Was Intimidated at First...
She felt a lessor player, and was intimidated by the ability of older more capable players when they were grouped together. She did much better once they were separated by age and ability, and came out feeling more confident in her ability, so that is a big positive!
I'd Come Back a Million Times!
Best camp I go to and I’d come back a million times. Also one of the best way to improve your game on/off the court, you come out more confident, better as a player of the game and leader. This camp just makes you better as a player physically and mentally.
Learned the Deatils!
For my first time ever in PGC this flipping amazing! I don’t think i’ve ever gone to a basketball camp that really dives into the smaller details of this game. Learning those details really helped me look at the game differently. So thank you very much!
I'm going to make my teammates better.
Coaches and staff were always there and in a way you could always rely as well as learning so much! I feel as if when I go back to my high school Im am going to be able to bring my teammates and I to the next level and be the coach on the floor
I always learn so much about basketball but most importantly life.
I always learn so much about basketball but most importantly life. I really liked the emphasis on being a good leader and how to sheep dog teammates. I have already attended this course, but I found myself learning new things in every session.
Gave Me More Advanced Drills
Gave me more advanced drills for my more skilled players and gave me good on-site on how to create a good culture. I like the moves that where taught. Now to install them into practice and have kids work through the struggle will be big
Varsity Team as a Freshman
My daughter was fortunate & talented enough to get to start on her high school varsity team as a freshman and she will tell you the vast majority of the things that coaches like about her she learned from PGC!!! Thank you so much!!!
Learn On and Off the Court
This camp was very fun and I not only learned on the court, but in the classroom as well. I think it was nice how we got to learn about the game in both environments and build new relationships with teammates and competitors.
Learned so Much About the Mental Aspect of the Game
The best PGC course i’ve been to, I learned so much about mental aspect of basketball. This just made me realize that you have to practice the mental part of the game just like you do the shooting and ball handing.
She Has More Confidence & Trusts the Process
She seems to have a lot more confidence - not that she'll make all of her shots, but that it's ok to take them and miss because that's part of the process. She also feels very good about her plan to get better.
I Can'T Wait To Use the Skills I Got From PGC
I LOVED this camp! This was the first basketball camp I've gone to in a long time that I genuinely enjoyed. This camp taught me so much about my game and I can't wait to use that skill set I got from PGC.
Taught How To Have Mentality Like A Pro
PGC was an amazing experience they get you better and tell you what it takes to play and and to have the mentality like a pro it gets you out of your comfort zone a challenges you mentality and physically
Too much walking
I thought Washington University was great, the food was good, but I don’t appreciate the walking.
Mentally and Physically Exhausting...
It was a mentally and physically exhausting week but I would do it again in a heart beat. The kind loving people around and just the genuine care each of the instructors has for the players is fantastic.
Helped Me To Teach Kids How To Bring the Ball To the Bucket
Really helped me to teach the kids how to bring the ball to the bucket and drills to reinforce. Also learned verbage on how to communicate better w/ the kids (just by observing Micah in action).
PGC taught me how to be a special player.
I had such a great time here at PGC this week and learned how to be a special player; I've never learned so much at a basketball camp in a week! It was definitely worth the money to come here!
So Tired
I was tired and sore but i learned a lot and it was worth it.
Signing Them Up for Me!
What a great job Katie has done! I feel like she was the best director my 4th and 6th grade sons could have! Great work! I can't wait to sign up for more camps for both of my sons next year.
Everything I Learned is so Valuable!
I loved how we had the same team for the entire camp. The things we learned on and off the court from all the great players, instructors, observing coaches, and the director are so valuable.
She Knows What It Takes To Be A Better Shooter And How To Improve
She came home with lots to say on how to shoot and great enthusiam toward bettering her shot. She thinks she now knows what it takes to be a better shooter and how to improve her form.
Classroom and Court is Perfectly Balanced
PGC does such a fantastic job! This is Jack's 2nd camp. The classroom and court time balance is perfect. The simple to use and game ready training you are giving is outstanding.
There Aren't Enough Words or Time
There isn't enough time to explain the experience that we all took in this week.. Its impossible to explain the atmosphere that was brought. It was something we will never forget.
Organized, Skillful and Great Leadership
Well organize, focus on development of the skills and fundamentals. Also promote leadership and teamwork. Amanda loves it and told me that she have the best day of her life!
Gabriel Enyinwa
Coach Kyle did a great job pausing me when he saw me going in the wrong direction and made sure I understood afterward which was very helpful for my shooting development
Provided Me With How To Build Progression In My Athletes' Mastery Of Goals

Most Deveopmentally Impactful Week of My Life

Dorms are mediocre but camp is amazing!
The dorms where a little unclean but the food was good and coaches were very nice and it was fun playing with older kids
Absolutely and Utterly Amazing!
Absolutely and utterly amazing. I learned so much and got better every single day. I can’t wait to take this information back to my high school team.

Makes Everyone Better
I learned so much every day and everyone at camp was just amazing how everyone supports everyone and everyone is trying to make everyone else better
Instructors Were Very Fun To Work With
All the instructors were very fun to work with and gave a lot of energy, they also said explained the game very well so we know what we were doing.
Made Me A Better Leader
Made me a far better leader and will help me bring energy and passion back to my high school team and be a better leader as a sophomore next year.
My Daughter Is Extremely Shy
My daughter is extremely shy and timid. Walking into the facility was a win for her. I love the fact that she was not given the option to be shy.
Stepped Out of My Comfort Zone
The camp was a great experience for me. I was able to step out of my comfort zone and stay away from home for a week while doing the game I love.
I Learned Efficiency In Drills
Learned how to instill a better culture in the gym, efficiency of drills and how to communicate and teach concepts in better simpler ways.
Amazing Split-Action System Installation

Taught Above His Skill Level in a Way He Understood
The techniques and skills where just above our son’s skill set and therefore definitely challenged him to grow and improve.
Boring Food
I felt I learned a lot about basketball and how to be a better play on the court and off but I feel the food should of changed more frequently because I felt I was eating the same thing every day.
I Have Learned So Much
I have learned so much. From how to show film and break it down for players to new drills and skills to teach in the gym.
