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 2019 through 2023 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
