  • Are you prepared to PERFORM this season?

    Over the next six weeks, we’re visiting the PGC ‘vault’ and sharing time-tested wisdom you can apply in preparation for the upcoming basketball season. In Part 1 of this 6-week series, you can unlock a major key to mental toughness: confidence

    In this video, former PGC President Dena Evans helps you assess your level of confidence against your level of preparation.

    Assess Your Preparation:

  • How much am I shooting? Am I counting how many shots I’m taking?
  • Am I recording improvement?
  • Do I have a consistent shooting routine, I do every day?
  • Ask yourself, “‘Is this really a lack of confidence issue or is this a lack of preparation issue?’” -Dena Owens

    Preparation is knowing that you did the work and put in the time. The more competent you are at something, the more confidence you’ll have in it. If you don’t practice shooting consistently then you won’t feel confident in your shot.

    How do you get more confident in your shot?

    You have to put in the work. Over the next six months work up toward 400 shots a day from game spots at game speeds. After that level of preparation, you’ll undoubtedly be more confident in your shot.

    This fall, join us at a PGC Shooting College camp and discover more ways to unlock your mental toughness, improve your shot, and lead your team.
