CTG Hoops purpose is stated within our mission statement, “Highly Skilled on the Court. Better People off the Court.” We understand that basketball ends for all of us one day. So our mission as a company, is for our students to know who they are without the basketball. It’s not about what we accomplish in life… but who we become through the process.
We design our training around three major principles:
1. Psychological Make Up (Mindset and Mental Training)
2. Physical Make Up (Basketball Skills and Basketball Athleticism)
3. Self Improvement Make Up (Life Coaching)
Ages have ranged from 4 years old, all the way to 21 years old.

CTG knows how crucial work ethic is to our program. Work ethic and consistency, are the number one indicators for any type of success. We also know how smart work can be just as valuable. We have to balance between these two extremes. Using both, smart work and hard work, to maximize the results of our students.
CTG has built a curriculum progressively. We believe in sequence. You can improve faster when working on certain skills/ movements in the correct order.
We wanted to give you the opportunity to look inside CTG’s brain. How we think, and how we train our athletes for crazy results. Everything we do has a purpose. We focus on the why, not the how. Every action we take must have intention. We don’t do things for no reason. Every detail has a purpose.
Variable training is a staple for CTG, it is what we are most known for creating. Variable training is the act of focusing on non-pre-planned movement. After we have built a fundamental base in any particular basketball skill, we focus on transitioning our students to more game-like training, which is non-pre-planned movement.
In a game, nothing is pre-planned. Everything we do is respond to our opponents’ movement. That is exactly why our basketball training should not be ONLY a pre-planned movement. However, this is what most of you are doing. When we train without defense, we are pre-planning each movement we make. When we train with defense, all our movements become instinctual, without thought. This will give our students better in game results.
