“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

Left a Boy and Came Back a Man!
Words cannot describe how beneficial this camp was for my son! He left a boy and came back a young man. This was my son first time away from home and I didn’t know who was more nervous me or him. He’s generally a shy kid so I was worried about him interacting with his peers. After the first day of camp I talked to him before he went to bed and he was having a great time with the guys in the dorm. The social interaction took him out of his comfort zone and he made friends. In reference to the basketball portion, my son’s basketball IQ has grown tremendously! His outlook on the game has completely changed and now he has a swagger about himself. We watched the finals this past week and he was able to diagnose different parts of the game that he’s never don’t before. The classroom portion was excellent for him and seeing it made a huge impact. I am a more than satisfied parent with PGC and my son has already decided to attend the fall mini camps as well. #PGC FOR LIFE
Impactful, Authentic, and Powerful
I thoroughly enjoyed the entire week. I loves the energy Chad brought to the week in the rich and engaging classroom work, and the passion and control in the gym. I absolutely loved the mix of humor and instruction, but my favorite session of the week was Thursday night when Chad shared his journey. That was the most powerful and impactful moment of the week, and I was deeply touched and appreciate the authenticity. It will be a moment that will stick with me forever. This week has been rejuvenating as a coach and I would not hesitate to attend another session taught by Chad. I also appreciated the conversations I had with Savannah and her insight about the game. She did a phenomenal job this week and I wanted to make sure she got a shout out of recognition for her hard work! All the instructors did great and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the multiple styles and approaches each one brought to the week.
Nowhere Else is there an Experience Quite Like This
Grad is by far the single best I have improved at basketball at once. I feel like I have not only grown as a basketball player , but also as a leader and human being moving forward. Nowhere else is there an experience quite like this. I have recommended this to all of my teammates and have gotten several of the to come. Thank you to everyone who has served the athletes this week. What you guys have done for me and my game will never leave me.
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
I've been to 9 courses now...
PGC is always a transformational/refreshing experience for me as a coach. I enjoy watching the process of all the athletes as they grow throughout the week. I've been to 9 courses now and they are always great. You can see that there is thought and time put into improving the curriculum and the way they do things every year. Thank you for being a light! Michael Goad Drew Central Lady Pirates
I'm ready to take the PGC principles back to Norway...
It's crazy. I feel like I can go back to Norway and create the best training environment Norway has ever seen. These 5 days has been so educational and inspirational. Hayes had the kids extremely motivated and the difference between day 1 and day 5 is huge! I recommend this to anyone that wants to grow as a person and a basketball player. Tony Wilkins, A Head Coach from Norway
Great Team of Professiionals!
The "camp" was phenomenal. It truly is more like college, and Delano learned so much. He has already canceled one camp that he used to attend regularly, because nothing compares to PGC. This is truly a well organized, dedicated team of professionals who want to take their knowledge and make athletes the best that they can be.
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.
Elitel Instructor and Coaches
Coach Clint was so hospitable to us as observing coaches. I appreciate his checking in regularly with us for questions we’ve had. He did such a great job connecting with players and coaches. He is an elite instructor but very personable with people. He is a PRO in all meanings of the word.
This experience has changed my approach
This experience has changed my approach as a coach. As someone who is forever a student of the game, I couldn't stop smiling this week. The atmosphere behind 'SCHAPE' Principles is such a genius simplicity that will change the way in which I strive to impact my girls and prepare them for the next level/stages of their lives.
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.
Helped My Son's Athletic Development
This camp was extremely beneficial for my son's athletic development, however it was even more impactful for his mentality. He learned intangible characters like leadership, mental toughness, and confidence. These are characteristics that are beneficial off the court as well.
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
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
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.
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!
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.
Incredibly Helpful for Me as a Player and Person
PGC Grad school has been incredibly helpful for me as a player and person because of what we learned about in the classroom and from the experiences and discussion I had with the coaches who shared their wisdom and success with me
Implemented A Ton Of Lessons
I've implemented a ton of lessons I learned through PGC over the last 3 seasons, coaching about 7 teams, especially the idea of positive reinforcement over harping on negatives or just yelling at players. I've change my teams' culture, based, primarily on lessons learned through PGC.
This Was Unlike Any Other Camp I Have Done Before
This was unlike any other camp I have done before. the classroom sessions were incredible and the gym sessions taught me things I never thought of before. For example, when faking a pass I was taught to put the hall out but at PGC I was taught to fake with my whole body.
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.
Great for Parents and Players!
I have attended PGC over 10 years now. I am so excited to see my own kids take advantage of the teachings PGC provides. I have seen a change in my own kiddos, as well as my athletes. Thank you for the opportunity.
Exceeded Every Expectation!

Powerful Learning Opportunity!

Creating A Culture Of Learning, Accountability & Leadership
Coaching skills in the gym in a progression that leads to intelligent FUN play with more looks, more scoring passes, better reads. Creating a culture of learning, accountability and leadership. How to watch and break down film.

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.
