You’ll also benefit from daily interaction with PGC directors, staff and the other observing coaches who attend. Of all our programs, coaches typically say that our summer sessions have the most impact on their coaching.

What they’re saying

PGC has given me the essential knowledge to become a better teacher of the game. I can’t wait to apply PGC’s terminology... My practices will never be the same.
Corliss Williamson  |  NBA Assistant Coach, Sacramento Kings (NBA and NCAA champion, Winner of NBA’s Most Improved Player and Sixth-Man of the Year awards, 12-year NBA veteran)
I’ve been involved in the great game of basketball for 25 years, and I learned more in the first three hours at PGC than in any ten years that I’ve spent in the game.
Coach Evan Woodward  |  Richland, Washington
Outstanding! The best clinic experience I have been witness to in 36 years of coaching! The combination of physical training and the classroom was really unique. I will leave here with plenty of new ideas on how to teach different aspects of the game. I will definitely be encouraging players and coaches alike to experience Point Guard College.
Coach Len Stanley  |  Bismark State College
All of the gym sessions were game-like and served a definite purpose. It’s awesome how the points of emphasis were reinforced... I’ve been to approximately 50 basketball camps, and you truly have the BEST teaching program in America.
