Petitgoue Also Emphasizes These 2 Things for Players

Coach Petitgoue also believes that if you're going to be good at this game, you have to put some time in on it. You just can't drop the ball in March and then pick it up back in November.

So he advises his players to play summer ball (7th grade and older) and attend camps, which has helped create his winning program!

And Breakthrough Basketball camps are a great way to make it be the player who stands out next season!
