Lili was a great trainer and mentor. Getting to work one on one with her helped me improve more quickly and it boosted my confidence.

As a former NCAA All-American, D1 national champion, and Team USA athlete, Lili Thompson knows what it takes to overcome adversity and master success. Today she’s on a mission to help players overcome their own setbacks and disappoint to accomplish great things – both on the court and in their personal life.
Lili spent her college career playing and loving basketball at two of the nations top universities: Stanford University (2013-2016) and the University of Notre Dame (2017/2018).
At Stanford, Lili enjoyed success as a team captain, All-Pac 12 Freshman team selection, two-time All-Pac 12 team selection, and two-time ESPN Player of the Week. In her three-year tenure, her Stanford teams attended the Sweet 16, Elite 8, and Final Four. They also snapped UConn’s 47-game winning streak in 2014. In Lili’s junior year, she became the programs 36th 1,000-point scorer.
At Notre Dame, Lili enjoyed her short tenure as a graduate student-transfer, leading the team in assists per game before her season ended with an ACL tear to her right knee.
As the youngest of six kids raised by two Army veterans, Lili’s life has always had a focus on discipline and academic excellence. At Stanford, Lili studied Science, Technology, and Society and received her Bachelor of Arts in Organizations and Innovation. At Notre Dame, Lili received her Master of Science in Business Management.
Lili has always been passionate about helping young athletes pursue their dreams, and she feels that her experience at the top levels of basketball will be an added benefit to the athletes that work with her. Lili looks forward to bringing energy, joy, passion, and precision to PGC sessions this summer and for many to come.
Lili shared her passion and energy with everyone. I would recommend my athletes attend any session led by her.
