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

Best $300 vacation ever
First, it was a boost personally. Coaches, like everyone else, get worn down over time. It was great to be around the PGC staff, other coaches, and a really motivated group of players. The how-you-learn stuff was great. There were numerous "one-percenters" to take away. They challenged my way of thinking on a few things. It was well worth the time, without a doubt the best $300 vacation ever. I have already recommended this to other coaches and parents of players. I was very impressed with three things relative to any camp I have seen before: 1. Zero wasted time. 2. Everything you all did was intentional, and most drills, etc. had multiple things you were trying to accomplish. 3. The focus on players coaching other players was excellent.
PGC has changed my life
PGC has changed my life not only as a coach but as a person. It has taught me so much about being a leader and a father. I had the opportunity to observe the pgc and watched transform the athletes into a better them. The director was amazing she was so motivational and inspiring. She created a culture that was unbelievable and the kids loved every minute of it. Her staff was also great they really served the kids and helped them grow and become better.
there Are Not Enough Words To Describe the Incredible Experience I'Ve Had At PGC Playmaker College
there are not enough words to describe the incredible experience I've had at PGC Playmaker College. the course itself was set up wonderfully and was full of pertinent information. I know the athletes had to have learned so much because I did as a coach. Specifically, I took away how to bring a spirited culture to a gym and a classroom. I also learned how to structure a practice and have gained many coaching points to bring to my athletes.
the Team Atmosphere Created In 5 Days Was Amazing
the course was an amazing experience for me. I have heard and seen a lot of the content before but seeing it taught and executed by the directors and coaches brought it to another level. I will bring back many of the drills, and the games played but mainly the energy that was brought daily. the team atmosphere created in less than 5 days between players that mostly didn't know each other was amazing.
PGC is by far the best basketball experience of my entire life.
Coach Micah helped me improve on my game, change my mentality and the way I approach everything. PGC is by far the best basketball experience of my entire life. The way they teach the game, and make you get new and better habits is just great. In 1 week I improved more than in 1 year of basketball and I'm really looking forward to next season to see how my new on and off the court habits show
My Son Won't Stop Talking about Camp
My son can't stop talking about his camp. He enjoyed it so much more than any of us were expecting! He loved the coaches, and formed wonderful friendships. He learned so much about basketball AND about being a leader. We picked him up and he said "how is it possible I am closer to these guys then I am to my high school team". A sad commentary on our school team, but high praise for camp!!
Truly transformed in 5 days!
I feel like I am a 10 times better coach and leader than when I entered on Monday. Being around like minded people has added to the fire that I have to build a winning culture and program. I am ready to go home and SERVE the people in my program, my classroom, and my school in a way that is intentional and transformational. Money well spent!! Truly transformed in 5 days! Gotten better!!
Should Have Started Attending Sooner
Oh my she loved the camp!! We just wish she would have attended before her going into her senior year of High School. Everything she learned will benefit her not only on the court but off the court. We will highly recommend this camp to others and believe there will already be more that will attend next year from out area. Thank you for provideing her this opportunity.
I Love How This Course Teaches More Than Just Basketball
I love how this course teaches so much more than just basketball. As a specific example, the lesson on handshaking and the use of it during the commitment statement presentations. This is a life skill that is invaluable to the players. Thank you for reinforcing this with my daughter as well as giving me a reminder to I still it in my players.
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.
Scoring College is my Favorite PGC Camp
Scoring College is probably my favorite PGC camp, so I was pumped when I signed up for this camp. When I got here, I met so many awesome people and instantly connected and became friends. The environment at this camp was so incredibly fun and infectious, with so many great athletes, awesome coaches, and great directors.
He Just Keeps Talking About It...
Creighton (11 years old absolutely loved Katie and the entire crew. He could not stop talking about how much he learned this week in camp and how it was one of his favorite camps he had ever attended. After camp concluded we went to a father/son camp in IA City and Creighton Immediately implemented what he had learned.
No Stone Unturned...
I can honestly say Chad and his staff left no stone unturned. These guys made me more focused as a coach, and proved to me that the game is really evolving. The old bully basketball way is over. We as coaches. We’d to spend more time Developing players. I will now always keep my notebook close to me.
He Had Fun While Learning!
This was my sons first time attending. Number one he had fun which is key to continuing a sport - you have to love it and that usually means it has to be fun. He felt it was competitive which is something other camps have lacked. He learned a lot in the classroom and was excited to show me his notes.
Life-changing experience that I have never experienced before.

Made Friends. Lost My Voice. PGC is Great.
At PGC, I made friends, learned great things about basketball and life in general, and had a great time doing so. My voice got coarse and my body was often tired, but that’s just part of the game. I had some issues with the college campus, but all things PGC were great.
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.
Basketball was awesome, dorms not so much
Dorms weren’t great but the basketball was awesome
I Have Been Searching For Years To Find A Program Like This

Unbelieve Experience to Witness..
I was able to attend the camp as an observant coach, and it was unbelievable to witness at first hand, the energy and growth in the entire group in such a way, that impacted not only their game, but their lifes. Austin and the entire staff were amazing!!
This Week Has Been Indescribably Incredible
This week has been indescribably incredible. Not because it was fun ( yet it was at times), but because my hard work payed off and because the information we learned will have a direct impact on my vision of myself as a player. I will hopefully be back.

Ever since our daughter has gotten home, I just keep hearing, "I just LOVED that camp!" I have seen a positive effect on attitude in general and relationship with siblings, response to parental authority... Thankful!
Changed My Attitude When Playing the Game
PGC was by far my favorite camp that I've ever attended. I've learned new ways to approach the game, new ways to change my attitude when playing the game, and made friends that I never would've imagined I would have.
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.
