    SECURE YOUR SPOT TODAY!

    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, PGC is the place to be.

    We can’t magically make your child a great shooter in 2 days, but we can help them create a personalized shooting workout that’s guaranteed to improve performance if followed consistently.

    There’s no easy way to become a Great Shooter…

    (But there is a system players can follow!)

    THE PGC EXPERIENCE

    The PGC Lab

    At PGC, the one thing that makes a player’s experience unique from any other camp is what we call our “Learning Laboratory”.

    Inside the lab, your child will benefit from a 3-step system (Hear It. See It. Do It.) that’s scientifically proven to maximize learning by taking advantage of their personal learning style.

    Here’s How It Works…

    1. HEAR IT IN THE CLASSROOM

    Make sure you send your child to camp with their notebook and pen! The first thing they’ll do each day is attend an intense classroom session with our top-rated shooting specialists learning 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.)
    • A surprisingly effective mind control trick your child can use to make more shots, grab their coach’s attention and get more playing time without having to mess with their shooting technique or even pick up a basketball. (As parents, it’s often difficult to know the right things to say to motivate our kids to help them get the results we know (deep down) they’re capable of achieving… but players who attend our Day 2 classroom session #2 and make this small adjustment to their daily mindset have shown huge increases in taking initiative and putting in the work required to make it at the next level.)
    • Why thinking like a ‘mad scientist’ might just be the fastest way ever discovered to consistently knock down more shots in games.
    • A sneaky way (inspired by James Clear, author of #1 New York Times bestseller, Atomic Habits) to transform their daily habits and make progress toward their goals without getting stuck in their own head. (If your child is the kind of player who struggles to consistently improve their shooting (or any other part of their game) learning this simple concept has the power to change everything for them. Especially if they’ve had difficulty sticking to a training plan in the past.)
    • 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.)
    • 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.)

    2. SEE IT ON FILM

    Then they’ll review film of some of the best NCAA, NBA & WNBA shooters to discover things like…

    • 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 enjoy success playing at the next level.)
    • A simple trick for re-wiring their brain to think, act and feel like a great shooter.
    • One easy “tweak” they can make to their shooting motion to potentially increase their 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 these kinds of results, we’ve seen dramatic improvement in the players who’re dedicated enough to practice it consistently.)

    3. DO IT ON THE COURT

    Finally, they’ll hit the court to get 1,000 shots up over the weekend and learn things like…

    • One of the easiest ways to find out (in real-time) if they’re actually improving their shot or not. (Plus, they’ll receive our shooting specialist’s favorite shot-tracking tool that makes measuring their results fun and interactive.)
    • 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.)
    • Why taking 500 shots a day can actually make a player a much worse shooter and lead to getting benched more often.
    • An easy-to-follow framework that leads to developing killer footwork and the ability to ‘stop and pop’ on a dime.
    • 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 child’s range and help them avoid getting left behind in today’s game, which requires the ability to accurately shoot from distance.)
    • How to create more separation (and shoot with less moving parts) so they can easily get their shot off more often when in traffic.
    • And so much more…

    4. TAKE IT HOME

    After 12 hours of learning, your child will have a customized training plan that’s guaranteed to make them a more confident shooter in 90 days or less.

    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.

    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 year, over 14,500 players from middle school to college attend a PGC camp — but PGC is not for every player.

    PGC is only for dedicated players who are serious about becoming great 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…

    FALL CAMP DETAILS

    Fall 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
    Camp starts at 2:00pm and ends at 8:00pm.

    Day 2
    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 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.

    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.

    "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."

    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 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:

    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 12,500 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 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. ($35)

    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. ($55)

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

    The 2 camp pass can be used toward any of our 5-day Skills Academy and Playmaker College day camps and is fully refundable. However, the pass cannot be used toward a Fall Shooting College.

    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 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 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.
