Every summer, tens of thousands of players across North America get the privilege to attend a basketball camp to improve their skills and have fun.
But a much smaller group of serious, dedicated players (typically around 10,000) will be doing a whole lot more than merely improving their basketball skills. This lucky group of players will be separating themselves from every other player in the country because they’ll spend an intense, no-nonsense week at a PGC Basketball Camp learning how to become the smartest player on the floor.
Like a master chess player, they’ll learn how to think about the game differently, so they can gain the unfair advantage of being one step ahead (or more) of their competition.
They’ll focus on game-changing skills like:
- (1) Basketball IQ: Learning how to incorporate the “little things” and contribute to your team in ways that give coaches no choice but to pay more attention to you.
- (2) Gaining a Confident Mindset: Learning how to overcome setbacks, losing, injuries, being benched, unfair treatment, and all the things that rob players of their confidence and joy for the game.
- (3) Becoming a Leader: Learning how to inspire teammates, foster a sense of urgency and get others to work together at a high-performance level.
- (4) Playmaking: Learning how to read the defense and make better decisions with the ball.
“I’m so grateful to everyone on our PGC staff who’s been working around the clock so we can offer over 100+ PGC camps, across more than 30 states and multiple Canadian provinces this upcoming summer,” says Mano Watsa, President of PGC.
“Our camp directors and basket instructors can’t wait to be back on the court and in the classroom with all our new and returning campers. And, as is usually the case, we anticipate camps will fill quickly, especially at our popular locations in Canada, California, Oregon and Washington, where we were unable to run camps in 2021.”
Players in the 4th-7th grade have the option to attend a PGC Skills Academy day basketball camps, while players from 7th grade to the collegiate level can attend one of the PGC overnight basketball camps.
Camp registration opens January 31st at 9 am EST with limited spots available for each session.
