Success Stories and Feedback from PGC players and coaches

“Ivory Latta, our first-team All-American point guard and NCAA Player-of-the-Year, went to Point Guard College and discovered ways to play bigger than her size. Her knowledge of the game increased tremendously. I was extremely impressed.”

“A must for any young player that wants to advance to the next level – whether high school, college, or even the NBA.”

Donnie Walsh | President of Basketball Operations, Indiana Pacers (NBA).

Coach Len Stanley | Bismark State College

“…the PGC approach to training really opened my eyes and gave me a new perspective on how to get better. Overall, this has been the best basketball experience of my life.”

Keith Steffeck | Upper Iowa University

“Not only did my physical skills improve, but I learned valuable lessons on how to study, examine and think the game that I had never been exposed to before. The teaching I received helped me to become a better teammate and leader—both on and off the court.

Justin Conway | Former Princeton University team captain

“The gym sessions were always intense and purposeful. We knew why we were doing each drill and we were pushed to do our best. The atmosphere in the gym was amazing. There was a great sense of camaraderie. I learned so much this week and I am so grateful.”

Jessica Knox | Harvard University

“My vertical leap, explosiveness, quickness and strength have improved immensely. He has taken me to level in which I never thought was possible.”

Mike VanSchaick | Former Fairfield University Men’s Basketball

“This has been an amazing experience and I learned so much about myself and how much harder I can push myself. I got so much out of the course and I can’t wait to use these work-outs back at school. I know I’ve made a big stride in my shooting. I came here as a good shooter and I’m leaving her with the knowledge that I can and will be a great shooter. Thank you!”

Amanda Parris | College Junior, Summerville, GA

“I learned so much and I feel like the game has now slowed down so much for me. I played in a pick-up game last night and played the best game I have ever played.”

Coach John Wooden (1910-2010)Named Coach of the Century by ESPN, Winner of 10 NCAA Championships

“I’ve been involved in the great game of basketball for 25 years, and I learned more in the first three hours at PGC than in any ten years that I’ve spent in the game.

Coach Evan Woodward | Richland, Washington

“All of the gym sessions were game-like and served a definite purpose. It’s awesome how the points of emphasis were reinforced… I’ve been to approximately 50 basketball camps, and you truly have the BEST teaching program in America.

Coach Laura Sellers | Normal, Illinois

“PGC is a fantastic experience for players and coaches. You will leave this program not only a better basketball player, but a better person. I would love to have an entire team of PGC graduates.

Coach Tom Beach | Forest Park, Indiana (2005 & 2006 State Champions), Anderson University men’s basketball assistant coach

“Point Guard College is an intensive indoctrination into how to play smart, minimize turnovers, and be a good leader. These are great, great teachers of the game.

Coach Rick Allison | Arlington, Texas

“PGC is basketball in its purest state: players who are eager to learn, coaches who are enthusiastic about teaching, and an atmosphere filled with positive energy. This is an experience that the players will take with them and apply to all aspects of their lives.

Coach Jimmy Johnson | Eddyville, Kentucky

“PGC exceeded my expectations, which were high to begin with. The coach was a superb presenter of the materials. The material was top-notch. My notes will be a resource for years to come. Thank you for this great ‘college’.

Coach David Dong | San Mateo, California

“The level of intensity and effort that is demanded at all times gives you a glimpse of greatness and allows you to understand what is necessary to achieve it.

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
