what is close the gate?
Close the Gate is a personal basketball training company in Janesville, WI designed to challenge players to approach the game with intellect and intensity. Although, CTG isn’t necessarily all about the details in the game of basketball, but also the game of life as well. A combination of college-level instruction (commitment to detail), video analysis, and high-intensity drills (game speed) will give kids the opportunity to realize great results. We consider ourselves as basketball AND life coaches!
Our goal is to make you the best possible player AND person that you can be. CTG wants to influence as many lives as possible, small or large. We live by our mission statement below.
“Highly skilled players on the court. Better people off the court.”

WHAT OUR ATHLETES & FAMILIES
SAY ABOUT US
“CTG is an unbelievably positive experience that has moved my daughter’s enjoyment of basketball into pure passion. She is never happier than when she is being challenged, motivated, and strengthened by her CTG workouts.
Parents of other athletes always ask me how she keeps getting better and my answer is always so simple: Jack. We are blessed and extremely fortunate to have had over five years of his time, individual attention, and incredible knowledge. CTG is an experience that we will never regret and will always feel blessed to be apart of!”
“My son Easton has gone to CTG summer camps and skills sessions since he was in grade school. Throughout that time he has not only developed his basketball skills through the varied techniques taught but also learned valuable life lessons.
Jack takes time to get to know each athlete and their abilities and goals, then tailors the lesson toward helping to achieve that. This could be through a word of the week about self reflection or meditation to improve focus. Jack truly cares for each athlete following in his fathers footsteps which means a lot. Jack’s dedication to athletes through private and group lessons along with videos and tutorials and blogs is evident we recommend this program to anyone.”

Our son, Gov, has been going to Close the Gate since he was 7. Close the Gate is so much more than basketball. Not only have his basketball skills greatly improved but his work ethic and discipline too. Coach Jack is a great teacher and coach but he’s also a mentor and a role model to Gov and has made a positive impact in his life.
They spend time talking about what matters in life and how to see things in a positive light. Due to Jack’s attention to detail, Gov’s shooting ability has drastically improved. He is a smarter basketball player because of Close The Gate.”
