    PGC BASKETBALL DIRECTOR

    Kristian Hudson is currently a course director for PGC. She first attended as an athlete during the summer months of 2012 and 2014. She returned in the summer of 2016 after her freshman year of college with hopes of learning more about the game at the college level. She came aboard working as a Basket Instructor in the summer of 2017 and has been involved with PGC since then.

    Kristian Hudson brings experience from the mid major Division 1 level and the Big 10. Having played at Florida International University and Nebraska respectively, she has learned countless valuable lessons through the sport of basketball that she looks forward to sharing with the next generation. As a student of the game and of life, Kristian uses PGC to teach to the hearts and minds of every individual.

    Throughout her playing career, Hudson experienced playing major minutes as a freshman, adjusting positions, transferring, being injured and not playing at all and more. As her mentor imparted the wisdom to her to “share what she knows to help others grow,” she looks to use her voice and story to pour into athletes, showing them how they can grasp the transformational lessons basketball has to offer that will serve them now on the court and in the years to come off the court. Her objective is to guide others in the understanding that basketball is not who they are but what they do. She hopes to shed light on how to use basketball as a tool to learn, grow, travel the world and be the best version of themselves. Kristian has coached on the NAIA level in college and currently coaches at Ramsay High School in Birmingham, AL.

    - Harper Lenehan

    "Above excellent use of ways to respond to players lack of focus or to bringing in players for activities."
    - Troy Gannon

    "I learned a lot of new things throughout this week that will help me in my game."
    - Claire Storhoff

    "Micah Gatewood expressed how much the camp gave him more options for being in position to score the ball. After the camp he said, “i can not wait to get on the court to use what I learned. He broke down S.C.H.A.P.E when he got into the car and his insights were incredible, especially how he made it relevant to how he could apply it immediately, on and off the court. Lastly, although he hurt his wrist the 2nd day, the PGC Staff used him as a coach for the week. This has lit a fire for coaching inside of Micah and he expressed, “I know I needed to think about life after basketball. I really like coaching and I think this is another option.” He even expressed joining PGC as an intern."
    - Eugene Gatewood

    "I love competing at all things and loved how much we got to compete at PGC. I cannot wait for my next PGC camp!"
    - Mossen Green

    "I didn't know my children could love the game of basketball more than they already did, but after a week of Skills Academy, they are locked in more now than ever! Thanks you Coach Hudson and the PGC Staff!"
