Help Your Child to Be the Best Shooter on the Floor
In today’s game, it’s hard to get on the floor if you’re not a great shooter — especially at higher levels of play.
In this camp, your child will discover how to become a deadly shooter so they’re the ‘go-to’ player on every team.
Note: The fall Shooting College schedule will be announced in July
THE PGC EXPERIENCE
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.

This experience was OUTSTANDING. I gained so much new knowledge about being an effective shooter. I’m very excited to bring this back to our program.
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 GET
Transform Your Shooting
In this camp, players discover how to:
- Build unshakeable confidence like Steph Curry
- Develop shooting accuracy like Diana Taurasi
- Get a lightning-quick release like Klay Thompson
- Develop killer footwork to ‘stop and pop’ on a dime
- Get and stay motivated to get in their daily workouts

In the Classroom
From the best teacher you can imagine, teaching their favorite subject — shooting
THE DEEPER IMPACT…
No one has ever become a deadly shooter without tremendous self-discipline, initiative, and sacrifice — and a killer mindset.
In this course, players are inspired to develop every quality necessary to become ‘great,’ which can then be applied to any aspect of life.
FALL CAMP DETAILS
Fall Camp Details
This camp is open to male and female players entering 7th - 12th Grade.
We limit sessions to 48-96 players, depending on gym size, 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.
Day 1: Camp starts at 2:00pm and ends at 8:00pm.
Day 2: Camp starts at 10:00am and ends at 4:00pm.
Each day of camp runs from 9:00am-4:00pm and check-in on the first day is from 8:30am-8:45am.
Each day includes interactive classroom and video sessions, as well as action-packed gym sessions.
Note: There is a short meal break each day for players to eat a bag lunch/dinner or for parents to drop off food.
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
Join over 7,500 coaches who have attended PGC course. Coaches consistently tell us the time they spent at PGC is the most beneficial investment they’ve made in their coaching career.

"This has been an amazing experience and I learned so much about myself and how much harder I can push myself. I can’t wait to use these work-outs back at school. I came here as a good shooter and I’m leaving her with the knowledge that I can and will be a great shooter."
Frequently Asked Questions
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 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 110,000 players and 7,500 coaches have been attended a PGC camp over the past 30 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 the entire camp and you’re not satisfied with the basketball education they received, contact us within 3 days of the camp and we’ll give you all your money back.
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:
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.
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 does Tuition Protection provide me with?
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.
Fee: $35 for day camps and $55 for residential camps.
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.
Fee: $55 for day camps and $95 for residential camps.
Note: Without a protection plan, tuition is non-refundable.
What health and safety precautions are planned for camps?
We will implement safety measures based on guidance from health authorities and requirements from host facilities. These measures may change leading up to camp.
There are detailed procedures for specific situations on this page.
What if I get injured prior to my session?
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.
During sessions, we do our best to ensure that an Athletic Trainer will be on site to provide ice and first aid as needed. If there is a serious injury, parents are notified and the player is taken to a local medical facility.
Note: If you decide not to attend your course due to an injury, our cancellation policy still applies.
