    Want Your Child to Become an Unstoppable Scorer This Summer?

    It’s hard to watch our kids work hard and not get rewarded for their efforts.

    That’s heart-breaking to see as a parent.

    That’s why we created the Scoring College — to give your child the right things to work on so they develop the scoring package and mindset needed to dominate the competition.

    Your Child Deserves The Best Training – Period.

    Sure, you can get world-class skills training in a few other places too.

    But there’s no other place on the planet for players to develop their basketball IQ, mindset, leadership, playmaking, and confidence – all at the same time.

    Here’s Why Your Child Needs to Develop These Skills »

    BASKETBALL IQ

    A great player contributes to their team in ways the average fan never notices. However, good coaches always notice these “little things.” So, if your child wants to be a great player, they better learn how to do these “little things” too.

    MINDSET

    Most players play the game with little thought about their mindset. Yet, at every level of play, a winning mindset separates average players from ‘the great ones.’ At PGC, your child will develop the mindset to be a champion.

    LEADERSHIP

    It takes energy and intelligence to ‘run the show’ for a team. Leaders have to inspire teammates, foster a sense of urgency, and get others to work together. PGC is a ‘leadership laboratory’ for every age and stage to develop these skills.

    CONFIDENCE

    What if your child could transform their perspective towards setbacks, losing, injuries, being benched, unfair treatment, and all the things that can rob them of their confidence and joy? Well, they can transform — and we’ll teach them how.

    COMMUNICATION

    Coaches always tell their players to communicate on the court, but most players don’t know what to say and resort to useless ‘chatter.’ At PGC, we teach players exactly what to say and how to say it.



    Is PGC Right For Your Child?

    Each summer, over 15,500 players from middle school to college attend a PGC camp — but PGC is not for every player.

    PGC is for dedicated players who truly want to get better — regardless of position or skill level.

    Just getting home from an incredible week at Scoring College. I had 8 players and 2 observing coaches with me. Fantastic week. Worth the cost by far. Best 'camp' I've ever seen.

    What Players Do at PGC…

    • Hear It – Each habit or skill is taught in the classroom first.
    • See It – Players watch film of pro players using each habit.
    • Do It – Players learn to apply each habit in game situations.

    What Players Don’t Do at PGC…

    • There are no talent shows or swim breaks.
    • There are no celebrity autograph sessions.
    • And, we don’t roll out the balls and “just play.”

    WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

    Make sure you send your child to camp with their notebook and pen because our top-rated basketball directors are going to help them learn things like:

    • The #1 way to increase your basketball IQ and improve faster than every other player on your team. (This is something your child can do while sitting on the couch in front of the TV or even scrolling Instagram. And it’s one of NBA Point Guard Chris Paul’s favorite tools for getting better when he’s not practicing in the gym.)
    • The super obvious, most common mistake 99% of high school players make when practicing that’s all but guaranteed to keep them ‘warming the bench’ next season.
    • A simple offensive move Hall of Fame Coach, Bob Knight, called the ‘best move in basketball’. (When even “average” players do this one thing the moment they catch the ball, they can create instant separation from their defender and a huge advantage for their team, which often leads to higher percentage shots and winning more games.)
    • How to develop an ‘attack mindset’ that can make your child the ‘hardest to guard’ player on the court, and give them the confidence to beat any defender one-on-one at will. (Once this mental “skill” becomes second-nature, drawing defenders, breaking down defenses and creating more scoring opportunities with or without the ball becomes like a walk in the park.)
    • The 7 most common weaknesses to exploit in your opponents defense.
    • And much, much more…

    The Deeper Impact…

    Beyond skills, this camp equips players with a champion’s mindset for their career — and life. Through our teachings and special competitions, players have this mindset strengthened every day:

    Adversity – How to be ‘unruffleable’ in every situation.
    Resilience – How to build mental toughness with every decision.
    Mistake-response – How to respond to mistakes with composure.

    Here’s how a corporate VP described what he saw from his son:
    Read What He Found Remarkable »

    “My son Cam just came home from spending a week with you. I want to express how impressed I am with your program at PGC. The changes I see in him are remarkable!

    I’m certainly thankful for the basketball skills he gained from your school, but more importantly, the life lessons he has learned and is now implementing are what matter to me the most.

    He has not stopped talking about being an “A player”, changing his “approach”, work ethic, ways he wants to develop and lead others, and “leaving things better than he found them.”

    In corporate America, these are huge ideals I teach to my people and I feel that Cam has taken a huge step in his life towards bettering himself as a young man.

    We have already taken advantage of the lifetime pass and he will be attending PGC throughout his playing career.

    We are thrilled with Cam’s PGC experience and I will commit to being your biggest cheerleader within my circle of influence. I’ve already worked in some of the lessons he brought home with him for my next corporate presentation.

    Thank you again for the impact you have had on him and I look forward to him continuing to grow with you as he continues his PGC experience throughout the years.

    10 REASONS TO REGISTER

    10 Pro Tips Players Learn at the Scoring College…

    SCORING SECRETS

    Learn the exact moves the NCAA’s leading scorers use to get to the free throw line an extra 2-3 times per game, get up 2 more three-pointers per game, and get more wide open looks, even against bigger, faster, longer opponents. (PLUS… learn how to build your own personal step-by-step workout so you can perfect your new moves as soon as you get home!)

    READ & ATTACK BALL SCREEN DEFENDERS

    3 super simple ways NBA point guards use screens to create advantages and aggressively attack open scoring lanes for easy buckets. (Without learning this information in our Day 3 classroom session, it will be nearly impossible for your child to play the guard position well at the next level.)

    ADVANCED SHOOTING FOOTWORK

    How to properly get your feet set to shoot when receiving a bad pass or when you’re off the move. (This simple shooting technique your child will learn on Day 1 in the film room is something Steph Curry has used his entire career. And it’s quite possibly the best way to get your shot off quicker and avoid getting blocked.

    SUCCESS BLUEPRINT

    The real life story of how Vincent Van Gogh blocked out the “noise”, the haters, and the voices in his head that constantly told him “you’ll never be good enough”. (And how your child can use these lessons to avoid comparing themselves to others, and instead focus on running their ‘own race’ which often leads to more confidence and faster, better results.)

    MISTAKE RESPONSE

    How to quickly and easily respond to mistakes like a pro and move on to the next play without losing confidence, sulking or bringing down teammates. (This advice your child will learn on Day 3 is probably the most valuable basketball and life skill they’ll learn all week and it has the power to change their life.)

    MEASURING PROGRESS

    One of the easiest ways to find out (in real-time) if you are actually improving your game or not. (Plus, your child will receive our favorite methods, tools and workouts that make measuring progress fun and interactive.)

    PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DECISIONS (PEDs)

    A short list of the cheapest, safest, most legal “go-to” performance enhancers that NBA & WNBA stars like LeBron James and Breanna Stewart used to reduce injuries, increase their playing time, three-point percentage and much more. Players discover exactly that and more during the Day 2 evening classroom session.

    PLAYING WITHOUT THE BALL

    How imitating 5x NBA Champion Dennis Rodman’s approach on offense can help your child earn more playing time if they aren’t the best player on the team. (Not only can developing this one skill extend your child’s playing career and make them stand out to coaches in a great way, it might just be their best shot at playing in college.)

    DOMINATING ON DEFENSE

    A “crash course” on how 5’2” WNBA Point Guard Debbie Black became the biggest pest on defense, consistently beat opponents to spots, and developed the uncommon (but a favorite among coaches) habit of hustle, and how you can too! (There’s no guaranteed “shortcut” to getting more playing time in high school, but becoming a world-class defender is about as close as you can get.)

    OFFENSIVE ATTACK TRAINING

    A simple technique used by 10x NBA All-Star, Carmelo Anthony, that can give you the “like magic” power to control your defender like a puppet on a string and keep them guessing all night. (Perfect this move in just one week and watch your playing time and points per game increase dramatically.)

    CAMP DETAILS

    Camp Details

    ENROLLMENT

    This camp is open to male and female high school players entering 9th - 12th & College.

    The majority of our Scoring College camps are limited to no more than 120 players to maximize each player's learning experience. Other camps are often 2-3 times this size, but we don’t take any more players than our camp director can know by name.

    Our sessions fill up and we turn away lots of players each summer, so don’t wait to sign up.

    CAMP SCHEDULE

    Each day of camp includes multiple classroom, film and gym sessions in the morning, afternoon and evening.

    Camp Check-in & Check-out: Check-in on the first day takes place between 11:30am-12:30pm. Check-out is at 11:30am on the final day.

    Get a 'Sneak Peek' of our Overnight Scoring College Daily Schedule

    The packing list and 'getting ready' details will be available in the weeks leading up to your session.

    OVERNIGHT CAMP SUPERVISION & DORMS

    At PGC, the safety and well-being of each player is our top priority. For nearly the entire day, all the players are together on the court, in class, or in the dining hall. Our staff stay in the dorms with the players to provide supervision & curfew checks.

    The players don't have a lot of time in the dorms, as they typically have less than an hour following the evening gym session to shower, have a snack and be in their room before curfew.

    The dorms are typically two players (of the same age) to a room. If desired, you can make a roommate request during the registration process.

    CAMP STAFF

    At many camps, the Director is a celebrity athlete or coach who lends his or her name to the program — but little else.

    At PGC camps, the Director personally leads every session and takes the time to know every player by name.

    Our team of Instructors will be there to inspire and support your child through every session. Our Instructors are typically PGC grads who have played college basketball and coach high school or college basketball.

    "I have worked with some great teachers of the game, however, this week at PGC, I observed the best teacher I've ever seen. The sessions were powerful, purposeful, and efficient. Not a session went by where I wasn't thrilled with the content and delivery. I can't tell you how impressed I am with PGC."
    — Coach Dave Jankowski, La Palma, California

    OBSERVING COACHES

    Join over 10,000 coaches who have attended PGC course. Coaches consistently tell us spending 5 days at PGC is the most beneficial investment they’ve made in their coaching career.

    At your PGC camp, you’ll attend all classroom, video and court sessions – just like players. You’ll also benefit from daily interactions with the director and other like­-minded coaches through in-session huddles and meals.

    If you're thinking about sending your players to PGC check out our Partner Program to receive special discounts available exclusively for your players.

    I have come back three years now and every summer I get better! I don't have the opportunity to play club basketball but this training has helped me tremendously in being a threat and a major leader on my boarding school team not only that but to train at the next level in the summer in order to get where I need to go! It not only helped me as a player but helped shape me as a person!
    Natalie Jeanson
    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
    Tony Wilkins
    Helped me a lot with confidence and I didn't know that before coming here that his lessons would help shape me into a better leader and overall a better person. His personal stories and energy is great! Life changing experience that gives me an idea of what I have to do to be great. I wish I would have had this earlier in my high school career
    Kaleb Branam
    I read the reviews online and they were all positive so I came in with very high expectations. With that being said, I was blown away. I feel like a different person as well as a coach. Its like I had tunnel vision coaching views that all of a sudden were opened. Unbelievable
    Luis Perez
    This was by far the best camp I've ever been to. The dynamics of the coaches and athletes made this camp really special, and I will give it glowing reviews to anyone that asks about it! I am most definetly coming back!!! And I'll be bringing more teammates!
    Madison Knapp
    This is my sixth PGC course. I still continue to bring STUFF back home to my own teaching. I love the enthusiasm Pgc staff brings and it continually motivates me to be a better person as well as a coach. Love it!!!
    Jackie Cushman
    This week's experience was inspiring, insightful and uplifting. It has made me reevaluate how I run my program and how to better instill the lessons of life that the game of basketball can teach.
    Tamao Kawai
    This is a course all coaches should attend, not just basketball coaches... It has been a good week that has built my confidence as a coach of young athletes. Keep up the great work.
    Toby Romo
    Game-changing. Well worth the time and resources used to be a part of this. I have found a roadmap to success with PGC and I plan to use it going forward for my players and family.
    Jomo Martin
    Amazing impact, positive influence, really brought me out of my shell. At first I wasn't too sure, but by the end it definitely showed as the best camp I've ever been to
    Duane Stokes
    The best coach/director that I have ever had. Even though the camp is exhausting, you learn so much that is well worth it.
    Gus Corsetti
    PGC is an absolute must for anyone serious about taking their game to the next level.

    FAQs

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I know if my child is good enough to attend?

    We get this question often and it's not about being 'good enough.'

    If your child is a dedicated player who loves the game and wants to improve, they'll fit right in. If they're not interested in learning the game, PGC is probably not for them, regardless of how good they are.

    Players are placed in skill-based groups, so if your child is a less experienced player, they'll be with others who are similar — and if they're one of the top players, they'll be with other top players.

    How do we know it will be worth it?

    Over 125,000 players and 10,000 coaches have attended a PGC camp over the past 31 years and the feedback is consistent.

    Players who are eager to learn and get better have a really special experience. A player who thinks they know it all already and isn't interested in getting better doesn't typically enjoy their time with us.

    As long as your son or daughter has a passion for the game and wants to improve, they're going to love their time at PGC.

    As we stand behind the experience we provide, and to remove any risk for you, we are the only camp in the camp industry to offer a 100% Money-Back Guarantee.

    If your child attends an entire PGC session and you aren’t completely satisfied with their basketball experience, simply contact us within this calendar year and not only will we refund your entire camp tuition, we will also send you an additional $500 cash to help cover any of your other basketball events or travel related expenses this year, to help further your child’s development.

    But don’t just take our word on the impact of the PGC experience. Check out what a few PGC grads had to share about their time at PGC:

    What if the camp is just too far away?

    The average PGC camp attracts players from 11 different states, as well as a handful of international players. Hundreds of players fly, endure long bus rides, or beg a parent or coach to drive them 10-12 hours to get to PGC. We are constantly amazed at how far some players will travel to attend a session.

    Right now, players in North Dakota, Alaska, Lithuania, and New Zealand are coming up with creative ways to get themselves to PGC.

    So, don’t let distance be a deal-breaker for you. Where there’s a will, there's usually a way.

    “When we left PGC, we had a 10-hour trip ahead of us, so I thought that Daymon would sleep most of the way home. Although physically exhausted, he was so energized and excited that we talked for over nine hours about his experience at PGC. He said, ‘Dad, this was one of the greatest weeks of my life.’ Last night, I watched him play in open gym and he is already incorporating what he learned into his game. Thanks for the positive impact that you made on our son.”
    — Joe Osborn, Fort Wayne, Indiana.

    What if we want to register, but our child would prefer to come with a teammate?

    Sure, they can bring a teammate with them. The more teammates who attend PGC with them, the more games they’re likely to win next season.

    However, don’t wait to register until they convince some teammates to join them, or you may end up losing your spot in the process.

    If your child only likes to attend camps with people they know, think of this as an ideal opportunity to stretch them out of their comfort zone. Even if their teammates choose not to enroll, they’re going to meet some incredible people—many who they’ll be friends with long after their PGC session.

    “Before I came to PGC, I was thinking, “I’m not going to know anyone there!”. But, as it turns out, I was welcomed into an extraordinary environment of athletes, instructors, and directors who made me feel like I was at home.”
    Misha Jones, Manassas Park, Virginia

    “What I love most about PGC is the attitude and approach of everyone around me. I have never been surrounded by such great, driven, and positive people. It just shows what kind of athletes PGC attracts.”
    Jacquie Chataway, Mississauga, Ontario

    What if we don’t know our summer schedule yet?

    You can wait until you know your child’s complete summer schedule before you register. The only problem is, the session you want to register for may be sold out by then as most of our camps do sell out each year.

    To make it risk-free for you, we offer Tuition Protection which gives you a full refund if you cancel more than 5 days before your camp and a 100% PGC credit if you cancel within 5 days. In addition, as long as it's at least two weeks prior to your session, you can transfer to another camp without any additional cost.

    What if I need to cancel my registration?

    Things sometimes come up that are unavoidable—we get it. That's why we offer Tuition Protection, so you can have peace-of-mind.

    Cancellation Policy: If your child can't attend the camp for any reason, including schedule conflicts, last-minute injuries, a concussion, an unexpected illness, or a family emergency, you will receive a 100% credit for camp fees paid that can be applied to a future camp, transferred to a friend, or donated to an underprivileged player. Without tuition protection, camp fees are non-refundable.

    In the unlikely event that PGC has to cancel the camp, 100% of your tuition fees paid will be credited towards a future PGC camp.

    With Tuition Protection: The purchase of tuition protection during registration will give you a full refund if you cancel more than 5 days before your camp and a 100% PGC credit if you cancel within 5 days of camp. ($125)

    What's the competition level like at each session?

    While the level of competition may vary slightly from session to session, there is nearly always suitable competition for the varying levels of the players. We occasionally have a pro player or top NCAA player who is significantly better than everyone else, but these players understand the intention of the week is development and learning, not competition. As long you as understand this too, it won't matter much who you're competing against throughout the week.

    Speaking of top players, while there are significantly more high school players than college players in attendance at Scoring College and Point Guard College courses, college players typically benefit as much if not more than high school players. As we teach details and subtleties of the game, we’ve found the more playing experience someone has, the more likely it is they’ll benefit from a PGC camp.

    What are the dorms like?

    Don’t expect the dorm rooms to be like the Hilton – they’re not. Some are nicer than others, but typically the rooms are standard college dorm rooms.

    We attempt to get dorms with air-conditioning whenever possible (nearly all college dorms have AC in the southern states), but some dorms don’t have it. You won’t spend much time in your room, but if you end up in a dorm that’s not very nice (or cool), it’ll be a chance for you to practice what you’ll learn at PGC about approach and mental toughness.

    If you don't require a dorm room for the week, you will save $100 off the tuition fee. We do recommend staying on-campus if possible, as the 'full-immersion experience' is instrumental in the transformation process for players.

    Note: Meals are still included for commuting players.

    What are the meals like at the residential camps?

    We have hungry players and staff at PGC courses. As a result, every meal is all-you-can-eat. Each college cafeteria provides a variety of options at every meal, and we request as many nutritious options as possible, especially as our staff have to eat cafeteria food all summer long.

    But, we can't guarantee your session will have amazing food, especially as we don't know what you think 'amazing food' is. If you're a picky eater, we recommend bringing lots of extra snacks so you don't go hungry.

    Note: We recognize some players have dietary restrictions and we work with each college to accommodate specific dietary needs. Please note your dietary restrictions on our 'additional information' forms once you've signed up and we'll contact you if we have questions.

    What details can you provide if I'll be flying to a session?

    If you are flying to a PGC session, you are responsible for your own transportation to and from the session. We recommend visiting the airport website(s) to determine the best means of transportation to and from the college. Many airlines have specific protocols for minors traveling alone. Please contact individual airlines accordingly.

    International Travel Insurance

    If you are an player attending a session in a country where you are not a resident, you must either:

    • Purchase international travel insurance and forward a copy of your certificate of coverage to PGC.
    • Provide a written letter waiving PGC of all responsibility in case of an injury or accident.

    The certificate of coverage or written letter must be emailed to [email protected] at least two weeks prior to the start of your session.

    We recommend booking a flight on the morning of your session that will allow you to arrive at the host college for check-in before 12 noon. If you arrive at the college before check-in begins, it’s not a problem (just bring a book to read!). If you are flying to your session a night early and you require accommodations, we may be able to assist you.

    At most of our sessions, players who are at least 18 years or older can stay in the dorms a night early. To make a request for an early arrival, please contact us at least three weeks prior to your session.

    Note: We do not provide supervision or meals to players who arrive a night early to a session. Due to liability concerns, we are unable to provide early arrival accommodations to players under the age of 18.

    What if we can't afford the tuition fee?

    How determined are you or your child to attend a PGC camp?

    If you are truly determined, there are ways to make it happen, even if you are financially challenged. Lots of parents and players have done it. We hear their stories all the time.

    If you can’t help your child pay for the camp, don’t let that stop them. Right now, a player in Texas is figuring out how many lawns he has to mow to get to a session, while a player in Chicago is calculating how many driveways she has to shovel to get to a camp. For decades now, players have been resourceful in finding ways to raise the money they need to attend. What about you?

    Here are a few quick ideas to assist your child, as they can:
    • See if their school’s basketball program or athletic department will support them.
    • Ask family members to put holiday and/or birthday gift money towards the tuition fee.
    • Ask a coach or a teacher for help in seeking financial assistance from a community organization. Many local small businesses raise money to support young people who need assistance—especially if the opportunity is focused on leadership and character development.

    As a competitive athlete, your child will always face obstacles in their life, and some may seem impossible to overcome. But whatever the current circumstances, there is someone out there who has faced the exact same circumstances and found a way to realize their goals.

    Once they've done these things, if they still need assistance, let us know and we'll do our part to support you. We help many players each year, especially when they've shown us their level of commitment to attending PGC. Get further details here.

    Note: We also provide a financial discount for clergy and military families. Contact us for details.

     

    What about injuries?

    If you’re injured prior to your session, we recommend you still attend. Many players have done this, and nearly every player has said they were glad they did. The majority of teaching takes place in the classroom, so as long as you can write and sit in a chair, you’ll get all the information that every other player receives.

    Note: Every player's health and safety is our utmost priority. We've consulted college coaches and top athletic trainers to ensure we're taking every precaution possible to minimize the risk of injuries at the camp, including managing the physical load placed on players and ensuring proper rest and recovery time. We will also have an athletic trainer onsite for the duration of the camp.

    What if my child is too busy and just has too much going on?

    What exactly are they doing that’s keeping them so busy? Are their activities aligned with their dreams and aspirations, or are they just following the crowd and hoping for the best? Great players don’t base their games—or their lives—on hope. And, they certainly don’t follow the masses. First, they decide what they want; then they go out and find the people and learning opportunities that will get them there.

    What good is it to be seen by hundreds of college coaches at AAU events if they’re not doing anything special to stand out from the crowd? A good college coach can pick out the best players on the court within the first five minutes of a game. Sometimes, they can even spot the best players during warm-ups, just by noticing how they carry themselves and interact with others.

    Smart players spend more time “getting better” than “getting seen.”

    What type of supervision do you provide?

    At PGC courses, the safety and well-being of each player is our top priority. For nearly the entire day, all the players and staff are together on the court, in class, or in the dining hall.

    Dorms

    Our staff stay in the dorm building with the players, and we ensure appropriate supervision and curfew checks each night. The players do not have a lot of time in the dorms, as they typically have less than an hour following the evening gym session to shower, have a snack and be in their room before curfew.

    Our Three Rules:
    1. Players are not permitted to enter the dorms of the opposite gender at any time or they will be immediately sent home.
    2. Players are not permitted to leave the campus at any time unless it is with a parent.
    3. Players are must be in their own room by curfew.

    How many players attend each session?

    The majority of our sessions have 80-120 players with a 12:1 player-to-coach ratio. Typically, basketball camps are two to three times the size of our sessions, but we don’t take any more players than our course director can know by name.

    Most of our programs fill up and we turn away lots of players each summer, but we limit enrollment so that we can provide the best experience possible for players.

    Are there swim breaks or special outings?

    There are no talent shows, swim breaks, or celebrity autograph signings, and we don’t roll out the balls and “just play”. You can find these things at many basketball camps, but not at PGC.

    We believe when you invest in your game, you should actually get better and improve. So, our commitment is to NEVER waste a player's time or attention.

    What are my chances of getting into a camp if I'm on the waiting list?

    Spots occasionally become available within a month or two of the start date of a sold-out session. Your chances depend on how many cancellations there are for a given session and how many other athletes are on the waiting list at the time spots become available.

    If I'm on the waiting list for a sold out session, how do I know if a spot comes available?

    Once a session sells out, if spots come available, we contact all the players on the wait list at the same time. The spots are then filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Camps tend to fill quickly — Reserve your spot today before this camp sells out.
