Skills Academy I

Foundational Skills

Designed to be the place for young players to build a strong foundation for the game in a fun and engaging environment. Develop critical shooting, ball-handling, passing, and movement skills, as well as key character qualities that all leaders possess.

  • Five foundational skills – ball control, shooting, passing, vision, movement
  • How to improve athleticism, balance, and coordination
  • How to make layups against contact
  • How to shoot the ball properly at a young age
  • How to have fun while learning new skills


We know how valuable your time is, especially in the summer. That’s why we’ve gone to extreme measures to protect you and your time. If you’re not satisfied with the basketball education you receive, we’ll give you DOUBLE your money back. No other camp comes close to providing a guarantee like this.


The Skills Academy was AMAZING. I've coached for years and attended numerous coaching clinics, but what I learned that first day were things I hadn’t ever heard before.

Skills Academy camps typically have between 50-75 players. Many camps are 2-3 times this size, but we don’t take any more players than our course director can know by name. Most of our sessions fill up and we turn away lots of players each summer, but we limit enrollment so we can provide the best experience possible for players.


  • Interactive off court activities and film sessions
  • Multi-sport games and competitions
  • Leadership and communication training
  • Attitude, habit, and mental training
  • Passionate and dedicated directors & instructors

success stories

It is nearly impossible to sum up the experience throughout a week at the PGC camp. As a coach, I was able to see the skill level of the players rise. However, I was blown away by the leadership and confidence I witnessed the players develop from this program!

I learned so much this week of camp. I had fun and definitely got better!

It brings the fear out of the children on failing and learning how to become a leader on and off the court with their teammates and friends.
