WML Parents,

As a PGC partner, I'm happy to share some of the benefits available to all players in our program:
  • $100 off player tuition for all PGC summer camps
  • $50 off player tuition for all PGC fall camps
  • FREE access to PGC's 365 Training—more than 100 workout and skills training videos for a full year (regularly $195 per person, per year)
*Partner Program discounts cannot be combined with any other discount.
Why PGC?
If you've never heard of PGC, check out this two-minute video called "Why PGC is Considered the Best Basketball Camp in America".
​I'd highly recommend considering your child for one of PGC's camps this summer. Each of their camps are unique, but they're all transformational.
You can get more details about PGC, including dates and locations by clicking a camp below:
​It can be a significant investment to attend a PGC camp, but the value of their camps far outweigh the benefits of others. They're also the only program in the entire camp industry to offer a 200% Money Back Guarantee.
