    What’s a Shooting College?

    If you’ve ever watched your child pass up an open shot when you wanted nothing more than for them to have the confidence to take the shot, our Fall Weekend Shooting College can help.

    And while we can’t magically make your child a great shooter in one weekend, we can give them the knowledge, skills and blueprint needed to quickly become a great shooter before the season starts.

    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 Shooting College Right For You?

    Every fall, over 2,500 players from middle school to high school attend a PGC Shooting College — but PGC is not for every player.

    PGC is only for dedicated players who are serious about becoming better shooters.

    Your child doesn’t have to take themselves too seriously in order to benefit from our camps (we still have lots of fun!), but they will need to enjoy working hard and challenging their existing self-beliefs to improve their skills.

    Take our 1-minute test to find out if PGC could be a good fit…

    Here’s What Players Learn at Shooting College…


    I felt like my shooting got better right away but more importantly, I was given the blueprint to becoming as good of a shooter as I possibly can when I return home!

    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…

    • Just jack up tons of shots and “hope” to get better.
    • Learn outdated shooting techniques like “BEEF” and 10 toes to the rim.
    • And, there are no celebrity autograph and photo op sessions.

    WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

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

    • The #1 mistake players make before a game even starts that’s all but guaranteed to crush their shooting confidence no matter how much time they spend practicing. (This is something that can be fixed within 5 seconds and doesn’t require changing their shooting mechanics.)
    • Why thinking like a ‘mad scientist’ might just be the fastest way ever discovered to consistently knock down more shots in games.
    • A “crash course” on how to build their own personal step-by-step shooting workout based on a 3-part formula our team learned while training with NBA shooters. (Without these 3 steps, it’s nearly impossible to translate practice performance into game results.)
    • How to develop a lightning-quick release that can potentially lead to getting off more shots and scoring more points. (The same drill that can help make this possible for your child also helped make Klay Thompson one of the NBA’s top shooters. It’s also worked to help countless PGC Grads such as Denver Nuggets, Jamal Murray.)

    10 REASONS TO REGISTER

    10 Pro Tips Players Learn at the Shooting College…

    SECRET SHOOTING DRILLS

    3 drills Steve Nash (the most accurate shooter in NBA history) built into his training routine that can build more confidence literally overnight. (If a player does these 3 basic drills as soon as they step on the court for every shooting workout, they’ll probably be amazed at how quickly their self-belief skyrockets.)

    EFFECTIVE DAILY HABITS

    A sneaky way (inspired by James Clear, author of #1 New York Times bestseller, Atomic Habits) to transform your daily habits and make progress toward your goals without getting stuck in your own head. (If your child struggles to consistently improve their shooting, learning this simple concept has the power to change everything for them. Especially if they’ve had difficulty sticking to a plan in the past.)

    MEASURING PROGRESS

    One of the easiest ways to find out (in real-time) if you are actually improving your shot or not. (Plus, you will receive our shooting specialist’s favorite shot-tracking tool that makes measuring your progress fun and interactive.)

    SHOOTING OFF THE DRIBBLE

    How to create more separation (and shoot with less moving parts) so you can easily get your shot off more often when in traffic.

    CONFIDENT DAILY MINDSET

    A surprisingly effective mind control trick that can help you make more shots and get more playing time, without changing your shooting technique or even picking up a basketball. (As parents, it’s often difficult to know how to motivate our kids to reach their full potential… but players who attend our Day 2 afternoon classroom session and make this small adjustment to their daily mindset have shown huge increases in taking initiative and putting in the work required to improve.)

    CONSISTENT SHOOTING MECHANICS

    A phrase coined by legendary martial arts instructor, Bruce Lee, that can eliminate “mind clutter” and virtually guarantee they get set to shoot in the exact same way every time. (Memorizing this one thought, might just be the easiest way to eliminate any future possibility of making the same shooting mistake twice.)

    SHOOTING MISTAKES TO AVOID

    Why common advice like, “you gotta get up 500 shots a day” can sometimes actually make you a much worse shooter and lead to getting benched more often.

    FOOTWORK

    An easy-to-follow framework that leads to developing killer footwork and the ability to ‘stop and pop’ on a dime.

    EFFORTLESS POWER

    An obvious (but often overlooked) technique most NBA & WNBA players use to effortlessly generate more power. (Damian Lillard & Steph Curry are probably best known for this little trick which can immediately increase your range and help you avoid getting left behind in today’s game, which requires the ability to accurately shoot from distance.)

    SHOOTING ACCURACY

    One easy “tweak” you can make to your shooting motion to potentially increase accuracy by up to 5 or even 10 percent in one weekend. (This tip comes straight from 3x WNBA Champion and 10x WNBA All-Star, Diana Taurasi. And while not every player will experience this kind of progress, we’ve seen dramatic improvement in the players who’re dedicated enough to practice it consistently.)

    AND SO MUCH MORE…

    After a full weekend of serious learning, your child will have a customized training plan that’s guaranteed to make them a more confident shooter in 90 days or less.

    FALL CAMP DETAILS

    Camp Details

    ENROLLMENT

    This camp is open to male and female players entering 7th - 12th Grade.

    We limit sessions to 64-96 players, depending on gym size, in order to maximize each player's 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 fall, so don’t wait to sign up.

    CAMP SCHEDULE

    Day 1 - Saturday
    Camp starts at 2:00pm and ends at 8:00pm.

    Day 2 - Sunday
    Camp starts at 10:00am and ends at 4:00pm.

    Each day includes interactive classroom and video sessions, as well as action-packed gym sessions.

    Note: Make sure to bring snacks or lunch each day (meals not included). There is a short meal break each day for players to eat a bag lunch/dinner or for parents to drop off food.

    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 a PGC course. Coaches consistently tell us the time they spent 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.

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

    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 I don't know my Fall schedule yet?

    You can wait until you know your fall schedule before you register. The only problem is, the session you want to attend may 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.

    How many players attend each Fall session?

    The majority of our Fall Shooting College sessions can only accept 64-96 players. 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.

    With more than 15,000 players registered this year for our summer camps and only 2,500 spots available at our Fall Shooting Colleges we expect we'll have to turn away lots of players this Fall, but we limit enrollment so that we can provide the best experience possible for players and ensure they get up over 500 shots per day.

    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.

    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 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. ($75)

    Can I use my 2 camp pass toward a Fall Shooting College

    Yes! The 2 camp pass can be used toward any of our 5-day Point Guard Prep and Playmaker College day camps and is fully refundable. The pass can also be used toward a Fall Shooting College.

    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 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.

    14-DAY ONLINE SHOOTING COURSE

    14-Day Online Shooting Course

    How Does It Work?

    Each 14-day on-demand course includes daily instruction, film breakdown, mindset training, workouts, and self-guided shooting tests, which you can complete at your own pace.

    I’m amazed at how I can see improvement and how fast it has happened!! I love this course and am so excited to keep doing it!”

    — Bella Bone, PGC Online Shooting College Grad



    Can’t Make it to a Fall Shooting College in Person?
    Don’t sweat it… You can sign up for the 14-Day Online Shooting course and feel confident knowing if you’re not satisfied with the program for any reason, we’ll give you a full refund.
