Incoming 9th-12th grade, college players, and coaches
Become an Unstoppable Scorer from Every Position on the Court
No player wants to sit and watch others make big plays, break scoring records, and get scholarships.
Develop the scoring package and mindset you need to dominate the competition next season.
THE PGC EXPERIENCE
You Deserve the Best Training — Period.
Sure, you can get world-class skills training in a few other places too.
But, there is no other place on the planet to develop your basketball IQ, mindset, leadership, playmaking, and confidence — all at the same time.
A great player contributes to their team in ways the average fan never notices. However, good coaches always notice these “little things.” So, if you want to be a great player, you better learn how to do these things too.
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, you’ll develop the mindset to be a champion.
It takes energy and intelligence to ‘run the show’ for your team. You have to inspire teammates, foster a sense of urgency, and get others to work together. PGC is your ‘leadership laboratory’ to develop these skills.
What if you could transform your perspective towards setbacks, losing, injuries, being benched, unfair treatment, and all the things that rob you of your confidence and joy? Well, you can — and we’ll teach you how.
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’ll teach you exactly what to say and how to say it.
Is PGC Right For You?
Each year, 12,000 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.
What You’ll 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 You Won’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 GET
Develop These Skills
In this camp, players discover how to:
- Beat their defender off the catch and dribble
- Finish creatively in the paint like Steph Curry
- Take charges and get the call like Debbie Black
- Get their shot off against taller, longer defenders
- Use fakes to create advantages like Candace Parker
- Use their training time better so they improve faster
- Read and attack ball screen defenders like Jamal Murray
Players transform in these areas and return to their team with the ability to read the defense, get buckets, and stand out on any court.

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 »
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.
Corporate Vice President
This camp is open to male and female players entering 9th-12th grade, and college players.
We limit sessions to 80-120 players with a 12:1 player-to-coach ratio. 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.
Check-in on the first day takes place between 11:00am-12:30pm. Each day of camp includes classroom, film and gym sessions in the morning, afternoon and evening. Check-out is at 11:30am on the final day. The packing list and 'getting ready' details will be available after you register.
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 to a room, although a few dorms are singles, triples or quads. If desired, you can make a roommate request after you register for your session.
Note: If you don't need a dorm room and will commute each day to camp, the tuition fee will be reduced by $100.
At many camps, the Director is a celebrity athlete or coach who lends his or her name to the program — but little else.
At a PGC camp, your Director will personally teach each classroom session, lead each gym session, and oversee & evaluate your performance on the court.
Our team of Instructors will be there to inspire and support you through every session. Our Instructors are typically PGC grads who have played college basketball and/or 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 classes 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
Join over 7,500 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.

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.
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!
PGC is an absolute must for anyone serious about taking their game to the next level.
This experience is exactly that - an experience. It is simply the best that I have ever attended in over 20yrs of coaching. I highly recommend it to all levels of coaches. Bring lots of note taking materials - you will need them. You will truly enjoy every minute.
The best coach/director that I have ever had. Even though the camp is exhausting, you learn so much that is well worth it.
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
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!!!
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
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.
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
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!
PGC really changed my life and my thoughts not just on basketball but how to handle life. I've learned more in this week about basketball then my whole life. I loved every minute of this place. Completely inspiring.
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
Game changing. Well worth the time and resources used to be a part of this. I have found a roadmap to success with PCG I feel and I plan to use it going forward for my players and family.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I'm good enough to attend PGC?
We get this question often and it's not about being 'good enough.' Here's what you need to know:
1. If you're a dedicated player who loves the game and wants to improve, you'll fit right in, no matter your skill level. If you're not interested in learning the game, PGC is probably not for you, regardless of how good you are.
2. PGC camps are about you. As long you as understand this, it won’t matter much who you’re competing against through the week. And 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. At our Point Guard College camps, we occasionally have a pro player or top NCAA player who is significantly better than everyone else, but these players don't mind one bit, as they come to PGC to learn.
3. Players are placed in skill-based groups, so if you're a less experienced player, you'll be with others who are similar — and if you're one of the top players in the state, you'll be with other top players.
What if I want to register, but I’d prefer to come with a teammate?
Sure, bring a teammate with you. The more teammates who attend PGC with you, the more games you’re likely to win next season.
However, don’t wait to register until you convince some teammates to join you, or you may end up losing your spot in the process.
If you only like to attend camps with people you know, think of this as an ideal opportunity to stretch out of your comfort zone. Even if your teammates choose not to enroll, you’re going to meet some incredible people—many who you’ll be friends with long after your 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 I don’t know my summer schedule yet?
You can wait until you know your summer schedule before you register. The only problem is, the session you want to attend will likely be sold out.
To make it risk-free for you, we have two Tuition Protection options available when you reserve your spot (see below). 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 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 I need to cancel my registration?
Things sometimes come up that are unavoidable—we get it. That's why we offer Tuition Protection options, so you can have peace-of-mind.
Cancellation Policy: If you can't attend your camp for any reason, including schedule conflicts, last-minute injuries, a concussion, an unexpected illness, or a family emergency, as long as it's at least 14 days before your session, you can transfer 100% of your camp fees paid to a future camp, transfer it to a friend, or donate it to an underprivileged player. Cancellations within 14 days of the camp will receive a 50% PGC credit for fees paid.
In the event that PGC cancels a session, including due to restrictions imposed by by government authorities or the college or facility, 100% of the tuition fees paid will be credited towards a future PGC camp. Without a protection plan, tuition is non-refundable.
Tuition Protection - Gives you a full refund if you cancel more than 30 days before your camp and a full PGC credit if you cancel within 30 days. ($55)
Super Protection - Gives you a full refund if you cancel more than 3 days before your camp and a full PGC credit if you cancel within 3 days. ($95)
