CAMP PARTICIPATION IN RELATION TO THE NEW NCAA RECRUITING RULE:  The new recruiting rules have no impact on camp participation, communication between players and college coaches during the camp.  The players 2020 through 2024 still are on the field and can work directly with the college coaches. (Coaches may not discuss specific recruitment with certain players is the only impact of the new rule). 

Coaches can still evaluate, receive future emails with game times, go to games and put the younger players on "Their Radar" Our camps at PGF allow players a great opportunity to stay within the rules and develop direct relationships with the coaches on the field during the camp.

WHAT COACHES ARE SAYING ABOUT PGF ELITE CAMPS: "I make a point to participate in PGF camps as they are very organized, have a great player to coach ratio, allow me to develop that face to face relationship and it gives me a great opportunity to evaluate players of all ages in attendance so I can continue to follow their progress...parents have told me after the camps that they were impressed with their daughters opportunity at the camp, PGF camps allow me to stay within NCAA compliance and still work directly with players at the younger age"  -  Current PAC 12 Coach

"I make my schedule around PGF camps, it allows me to work directly with players on the field, evaluate, establish a relationship and then attend their games that same weekend, PGF Camps are as well run as any camps I have attended"  - Current Big 10 Coach

To All College Coaches attending PGF Nationals

We want to welcome you to PGF Nationals of 2019, as you plan your week, we would like you to consider attending our PGF National Championship Camp.

The camp is run on Sunday, July 28th 2019 from 10:00am to 2:15pm at Harvard Park, 14701 Harvard Ave. Irvine CA.  There are no games scheduled for that day (this is the day after the end of 16U and 18U and the day prior to the start of 14U & 12U).

The camp utilizes all 7 fields at the complex and we place 30 players on each field (total of 210 players, with a grad year of 2020 through 2024, all are non-committed).

Each field is run independently of the other and are run by college coaches.

The camp schedule is broken down into the following...
10:00am..Defensive drills
11:00am..Offensive drills (normally dual front toss)
12:00noon until 2:15pm.. Live games, no umps, no score, starting at 1-1 counts and fast paced.

All players wear a colored numbered pinnie that ID's the player by year of graduation.

You are not required to check in in advance, when arriving, go the PGF Tent where we give you a detailed coaches book that has players listed by field, year, position(s) and numbered pinnie.

You will know most of the coaches running each field (we put 4 per field) so feel free to ask them to accommodate any request of putting a player on the field or position.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at mario.moreno@pgf-mail.com
