“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

You know exactly what you are talking about, and you are the smartest person I know when it comes to basketball.”

A Basketball Disney World
I have learned more about coaching and teaching this week than I have my entire life. Point Guard College was always a dream for me. A 'Basketball Disney World' that sounded amazing, but due to the price I never got the opportunity to attend as a player. If I could go back and re-do ONE thing as a high school athlete, it would be to attend this camp. Spending a week observing at Point Guard College has been a sort of revival for everyone here. Another observing coach even said out loud that he felt like he had been reborn. We are excited, we are energized, and we have picked up so many teaching tools that we can take back and implement with our kids in every aspect of our lives. I became a better coach, a better teacher, a better mother, a better wife, a better friend by being here surrounded by so many like-minded and inspiring people. I saw 135 kids walk through those doors as shy, timid, awkward strangers. Through the course of this week, I watched PGC staff pour themselves into these kids and ultimately bring 135 strangers together. I not only saw, I felt the energy and the connection formed.... A family like bond created in just 4 days. They learned so much about basketball and even more about leadership. Not a single kid will walk out of these doors the same person they walked in as. Not one. My new dream is to do everything I can to replicate this experience to the best of my ability every single day so that every kid who walks into our program, or walks into my classroom, doesn't walk out the same.
Great Reminders About Being Intentional, Being Present & Having A Growth Mindset
the course has given me great reminders about being intentional being present having a growth mindset. Additionally I have gained confidence experiencing this opportunity I have been given. I enjoyed the discussions with fellow coaches, the directors and hearing the in classroom feedback from players. I brought my son to this course based on what I read in the course description. I would bring my son back and my older son back again and again for these Life lessons!!
I Really Liked the Focus On Decision Making
I really liked the focus on decision making, the focus on peeking at the basket/down the floor is very key. Also, I intend to really reinforace power position with my team this year. That and Mo Stops. I think some of the open court dribbling stuff is what I will use the most. the Mo Stops/Changes, butt cutts and pullbacks are essential tools. I will also use some of the language from the classroom to talk about leadership with my players.
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.
Unique Skill Development Curriculum
PGC basketball provides a unique skill development curriculum by SCHAPE’ing the environment. This camp provided my daughter a positive, like-minded environment that gave her to old on how to train basic skills, game-based learning experiences, and life lessons. With the completion of her camp she now has the inner fire to improve her game and be a positive influence on and off the court.
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 Camp Really Showed Me I Can Be Great
This camp really showed me a lot and what I can do with my skill as of right now and I've lacked confidence but this camp really showed me that I can be great and make it somewhere and that I'm a point guard so I don't need to be afraid to score or lack confidence and they taught me a-lot of new skills in basketball and outside of basketball that I can use
They Taught More Than Just Basketball
Craig & Staff did a phenomenal job not only teaching the game of basketball, but more importantly the game of life. His passion & sincerity were “through the roof.” He & his staff changed lives & players for the better w/out a doubt. I’m grateful for the opportunity to attend such an awesome environment along w/ my daughter. #Blessed
PGC was the highlight of my summer.
PGC was the highlight of my summer. when i first arrived, my nerves were all over the place. But as soon as i talked to the first staff member and felt all of their energy and encouragement for just being there, i felt right at home. the skills they taught on and off the court will definitely help me to be the best player and person i can be.
My 6th Camp and It Never Disappoints
This is the sixth PGC event I have attended and I am fortunate enough to be a host. The curriculum directors and staff never disappoint. I am amazed how much I continue to learn at these sessions. Dustin was PHENOMENAL! His attention to detail and making every athlete feel valued is a special gift!
the Life Lessons Reminded Me Why I Started Coaching In the First Place
This experience gave me the tools and confidence and even wake up call to be selfish in my own journey in coaching and have the confidence to believe in my own ability. the Xs and Os boosted my confidence while the life lessons interlaced reminded me why I started coaching in the first place.
Stratton Hallows
Point Guard Prep has taught me a lot about not just moves, but about how even if you don't play you can still impact the game by being a good teammate and an energy-giver. I also learned to put others first, build others up, and do hard things by pushing your limits and stretching yourself.
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
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!
Great Camp Structure for Players and Coaches
I was very impressed with the structure of the camp. The energy that Coach Matt & staff brought was very infectious throughout the week. As an observing coach I had access to everything throughout the week and felt extremely welcomed! Thanks Coach Steinbrock
PGC is One of the Best Investments You Can Make!
PGC is one of the absolute best investments I have made in my son’s growth as a basketball player and as a young man. Each experience is different and excellent in its own way. The directors continue to impress and Chad is the ultimate role model.
Gave Me Reassurance, Confidence And Tips On Becoming A Better Shooting Coach
This experience gave me reassurance, confidence and tips on becoming a better shooting coach. I loved the rationale and data to support the curriculum. I loved the shooting tests at the end to create a competitive environment after the training.
PGC changed my life.
He was always so passionate with us and always showed everyone what it was like to be a true leader! I have never felt the caring embrace of so many people in my life before! It had truly changed my life and it will continue to change my life.
Mistakes Are Part Of the Journey
I grew as a player and learned that mistakes are part of the journey and I also learned many important aspects that I should use throughout the rest of my life. It was amazing and I am so thankful for all the people and all they did for me.
Re-wronte All His Notes
Connor LOVED PGC camp. He took notes and then came home and re-wrote all of his notes and read them to us each day and showed us examples. He's only 11 and he learned things that will last him a lifetime, on and off the court!

Very Inisghtful for All of Us
The session was very insightful for me. I had 5 athletes attending the course and they all agreed they would like to come back to PGC for a different curriculum. They learned a lot and they enjoyed the experience.
Talking To the Directors Really Helped My Confidence
Talking to the directors really helped to just gain the confidence and to realize I will make mistakes and might same the wrong things here and there but that's the only way I will learn and grow from it.
A Very Good Basketball Camp
Very good experience, I really like PGC because it's a very good basketball camp but at the same time I really like being social and meeting everyone at my basket plus more and having a fun time
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.
PGC is always a transformational
Game-changing. Well worth the time and resources used to be a part of this. I have found a roadmap to success with PGC and I plan to use it going forward for my players and family.
Students Learned On the Court And In the Classroom.

I Have New, More Precise Vocabulary To Utilize
I have new, more precise vocabulary to utilize and additional levels of drills to incorporate into my practices. In addition, my energy and joy for coaching has been recharged.
My experience was amazing.
PGC taught me many valuable things throughout the week and pushed me to be my best. I did not expect my experience to be anywhere near like what I experienced, it was amazing.
Organized, Skillful and Great Leadership

Pages and Pages and Pages of Notes
The pages of notes tell the story. Between my daughter and her two friends, they combined for 86 pages of notes! I love the learning that takes place during a PGC session!
I Feel Much More Confident In My Ability To Work With Guards
I feel much more confident in my ability to work with guards because of how well the directors and coaches broke down the components of every skill and move they taught.
Lessons Applied to All Areas of Life
The players worked really hard and learned so much through the experience. I am impressed that the lessons extended into other aspects of life, leadership and learning.
Sore and Tired
Overall my experience and PGC was pretty good. I had a lot of fun with meeting new people and playing and learning the game. The only downside was that I was always sore and tired throughout the week.
Using What I Learned in My Every Day Life!
It was great and I loved it!! It definitely made me better and I can’t wait to take what I learned at this camp and use it on the court and in my every day life!!
