CTGHoops 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:

3. Self Improvement Make Up (Life Coaching)

Close the Gate has trained over 250+ students within the last year. Ages have ranged from 4 years old, all the way to 21 years old. Students have traveled from up to an hour away from any of our locations to come train with us. CTG has over 125+ five-star google reviews.

What is Off the court with coach jack?

“It’s not about what we accomplish in life, but who we become through the process.”

The mental side of the game is one of the most undertrained aspects in all of sports. To truly elevate your game and life, you must understand how we think as people.

At the end of the day, basketball ends for all of us one way or another. If our worth as a person is defined by what we achieve, then who are we when we fail? Understanding that performances do not define us, is the turning point in anybody’s LIFE, NOT just their basketball career.

Our podcast aims to equip basketball players with the wisdom to create maximum performance on the basketball court, but also for how they handle themselves off the court. 

I can only imagine what this podcast could have done for me when I was a player, who struggled with so many aspects of the game that came down to one, constant problem… MINDSET.

If you are a hungry basketball player/ coach/ parent, looking for any way to become better at the game but also as a person… you need to be listening this podcast every week!

Our podcast, Off the Court: Mindset + Mental Training Podcast, has over 78 five-star reviews on apple podcasts with over 6.5 thousand downloads.
