Getting Ready Updates

We’re excited you’ll be joining us for a virtual course! Our virtual courses are designed to teach you to Think The Game, with focused basketball instruction and film breakdown sessions, plus in-home workouts that lock-in your learning.

To ensure you are set up for success, please carefully review the information on this page. This page will be updated with any additional details you need for your session at least one week prior to your start date. We will email you a reminder link to this page before your camp begins.

What You’ll Need

Digital Device
Throughout the camp, players will need to watch broadcasts of teaching sessions, film breakdowns, and workout assignments. To participate, you’ll need access to a smartphone or tablet with access to the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Notepad and Pen
The teaching instruction at PGC sessions is second to none. To maximize retention of the material, we encourage players to actively take notes and to review them frequently.

Dedicated Learning Area
Please ensure you have a comfortable environment, free from distraction, for your classroom and film sessions. For workouts, you will want to have space to spread out and move around.

Ballogy App
Online courses (other than PGC Grad School) are powered by the Ballogy App, available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. Before your course begins, you will receive an email invitation from Ballogy with instructions for joining your private group session.

PGC Grad School will be presented live via Zoom and will not utilize the Ballogy app.

In the meantime, refer to the most frequently asked questions we receive.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What's the difference between virtual courses and live camps?

Virtual courses are designed specifically for players who are not able to attend an in-person camp. PGC teachings and film breakdown are presented in 30-minute segments at dedicated times throughout the day. Between teaching sessions, players complete at-home workout sessions designed to lock-in key principles. Each day of camp also includes live Q&A sessions with a PGC Director

What is the Ballogy App? How do I get started with my virtual course on the app?

Ballogy is a social media style app designed specifically for the basketball community. Your PGC Online Shooting College course is powered by the Ballogy app inside a private group. The Ballogy app is available for download on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Each virtual course has its own private group inside the Ballogy App where you’ll access all of your course content. You definitely want to get everything ready in advance of your session!

We’ve created this reference guide for you to follow to ensure you have everything set up and ready to go before your session starts.

Prior to the start of your session, you will receive an email invitation from Ballogy with your group Access Code.

Once the app is downloaded on your device, there are two ways to connect or sync to your private course:

First-time Users

When you open the app for the first time, immediately enter your unique Access Code and complete the additional fields to create your new Ballogy account.

Existing Users

  • Go to your My Ballogy screen
  • Tap the Settings icon (in the top/right corner)
  • Select “Sync with Access Code”

You’ll soon see your roster invite notification, and any data coming from PGC will be added to your current account.

What if I'm not satisfied with the virtual camp instruction?

No problem whatsoever. We’ll provide a full credit of fees paid towards your next in-person PGC camp. We’re confident you’ll be delighted by the virtual camp experience we’ve created though. 🙂

What if I miss a session?

Just like a regular day at an in-person PGC summer session, if you miss a virtual classroom or court session, you missed it. You’ll need to be on time and prepared for each day of camp.

At the same time, we understand there may be legitimate reasons a player has to miss a given session, so we’ll do our best to have recordings available after-the-fact.

Can parents watch?

Parents are invited to experience PGC first-hand by joining their player for the classroom and film breakdown sessions throughout the camp. At-home workouts are enhanced with a workout partner, and we invite parents to join in alongside their player.
