  • PGC Summer Camp Registration - REGISTRATION OPEN

    PGC Basketball teaches players the uncommon skills, habits and mindset that coaches at the high school, NCAA, NBA and WNBA level mostly look at when deciding who they want playing on their team.
    Players who attend PGC learn how to “think the game” so they can separate themselves from every other player on the court, which leads to things like:
    • Getting more playing time
    • Becoming the player coach trusts most
    • Getting more attention from college coaches
    • Winning more championships
    • And, much more…
    If this sounds like something you want for your child, here’s what you need to know…
    Because of their popularity and limited space, PGC sets a date and time when they begin accepting registrations each year for camp. This year, that date was Monday, Jan 29… and when registration opened, over 5,000 players registered in the first few days.
    So needless to say, many of their Summer courses are going to SELL OUT. Click this link to register now!

    (Last year, more than 100 courses sold out across North America)

  • Personal and Small Group Training

    CORE Hoops Personal or Small Group Training is for young Gentlemen in 2nd Grade – High School
    Fundamentals are the foundation from which every player will develop their game.  Personal training sessions are meant to build confidence and develop your individual skills each session.   

    For more advanced players, CORE Hoops trainers will help you develop position-specific skills, motor function skills, multitasking, and reaction time. Each session is tailored to your skill level, position and individual needs.
    Don't get left behind the competition this summer. Grab a few of your friends and sign up for a small group training that will focus specifically on what you all need to get better. Choose a date that works for your group and the session that fits your need. Sessions are for 3-6 players at a time

    Training session selections include:

    Speed training
    Post Moves

    Small group training sessions are very important in developing the complete player while taking your skills to another level. Despite being in a group setting, you will still develop individual skills, which will be applied in the team setting. Group sessions add an essential element to developing a Team Mindset and Team Skills when learning the game.
