The July evaluation period is coming up quickly and basketball courts around America will soon be filled with college coaches looking for basketball players to bring depth to their roster. At the same time, there will be athletes and coaches attending basketball camps throughout the country working to improve their basketball skills and basketball IQ.
This is a critical time for athletes and coaches to build some positive relationships. The people you meet this summer could very well be connected to the opportunity you are deeply seeking to get – both as a player and as a coach.
The challenge is, in a technology-driven world, building relationships has become a lost art. Follow these seven (7) simple principles of relationship building as captured from “The Fred Factor” by Mark Sanborn:
- Be real.
- Be interested (not just interesting).
- Be a better listener.
- Be emphatic.
- Be honest.
- Be helpful.
- Be prompt.

I want to share with you a problem I have faced. It’s a problem all athletes face, and one that can be extremely frustrating and discouraging throughout a career.
The problem is players put in an immense amount of time, energy, and effort, but struggle to see their improvement.
Athletes, this is for you. We all want to play more minutes, have more fun, and win more games. But there’s a big problem that we all succumb to that’s holding us back from reaching our full potential.
939,836 – the number of high school basketball players across the United States this season.
94.2% of those athletes will not play basketball at the college level.
Today, Tyler Coston, PGC Director of Player Development, is giving us the secret formula to play college basketball because you need to know the truth about the price you must pay to avoid the pain of your career ending sooner than you hope.
