What College Players Say About PGC

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 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
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.
Clint Cybulski  |  Emmanuel College 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
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
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

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

WHAT PLAYERS SAY ABOUT PGC

The classroom sessions changed my game more than anything else. I particularly loved the Unruffleability and the Extra Ounce lectures.

Now my approach towards everything—my training, games, relationships, teammates, school and my life—has made a 180-degree turnaround. I am so thankful that I could attend PGC.
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.
Michael Gould  |  Newton, Massachusetts (two-time Think The Game grad)
This week opened my eyes to things I had never seen or thought about before. It has SCHAPE’d me into what I always hoped I would become—a LEADER.
Noah Drassinower  |  Toronto, Ontario
These past few days have had such an impact on my mindset and my commitments. …I feel invigorated, inspired, and excited.

Most valuable week of my life. I didn't only learn how to think the game, but how to think my life as well.
Vincent Butler-Japorte  |  Boucherville, Quebec, Canada

WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT PGC

Our daughter, Susan, attended your camp this past summer. You helped her to rediscover her passion for the game that she loves so much. Her approach to life, school, and basketball has all been altered in a positive way.
Jill & Bryan Bossler  |  Reading, Pennsylvania
Zach’s coach said to him, ‘I don’t know how much you paid for Point Guard College this summer, but it was worth every penny. You’ve improved in every facet of your game.
Greg Tudor  |  West Lafayette, Indiana
My son has been a different kid since this basketball camp. Now he thinks talks and acts like a leader. He's playing with passion, fire, and energy. Honestly, I can’t believe it is my son. PGC taught him how to play the right way.
Joe Osborn  |  Fort Wayne, Indiana
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
Coach Mano, what you taught me this week is priceless. You have taught me so much, as a coach and as a person. The athletes gained so much trust in you because you are powerful, but in a way I have never seen in my life. You have changed me as a player and as a person.
