"We are looking to work with players that are desperate to excel.  Those are the ones we can and will get results for.  If that's you, let's get to work!"

- Coach David Thorpe

Coach Thorpe is the Godfather of personal basketball training.  Thorpe has helped players like Jrue Holiday, Georges Niang, Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, Corey Brewer and Kevin Martin earn millions of dollars, make All-Star appearances, and even win championship rings!


This is the real deal and we're excited to share it with you.  Read some of our player's stories.

Kevin Martin, Retired NBA Veteran

"I started working with Coach Thorpe as a 19 year old kid about to start my second year of college. He was the only voice in my head for the next 14 seasons, when I retired after the birth of our daughter. And he and his wife were the first people to hold little Anna after my parents, grandparents, and my wife Jill's parents. He's been my second dad forever and always will be. He didn't just teach me skills, he taught me how to play the game and use those skills correctly. He did far more than that. He taught me how to be a pro, in every sense. It's simple, really; without his guidance and teaching, I'd have been a good college player with possibly a chance to play in a decent league in Europe. Instead I averaged over 20ppg in the NBA in six different seasons for three different teams. That's not an accident. That's what Coach and I did together. I only wish I'd have come under his tutelage when I was younger."

Corey Brewer, NBA Champion

"I tore my ACL at the start of my second season in the NBA and the following year I struggled to recover my game. My dear friend and college teammate Joakim Noah told me to go see Coach Thorpe. So I did. That was in 2009. From that first week I knew he was my guy. His style of teaching sneaks little things into my game. He breaks stuff down perfectly so I can quickly add new moves or finishes in games. He knows how to inspire players like no one else I know. Eleven years later, he's still my guy. He's the first man I called when I learned my dad fell into a coma, and again weeks later when he passed. I can't urge young players enough to find someone who can teach them the game and learn from then every second you can. I've played for some of the greatest coaches in history. He's high on that list."


Jrue Holiday

Jrue was the Gatorade National Player of the Year before he played a season at UCLA. He tested for the NBA draft and trained with us to prepare for it. Despite averaging just 8 points per game as a freshman he was drafted in the first round by the Philadelphia 76ers. He went on to become an NBA -All-Star and is the captain for the New Orleans Pelicans.

James Lee

Martell Webster

Martell was an NBA lottery pick and incredible prep player.  Later in his career he hit a rough patch so he worked with us on building his entire game.  He found confidence in his abilities once again. Soon after he signed a one year ‘minimum” deal with the Wizards and turned that into a good long term deal as well. He credited this success to spending time with us. We were the better for it. 

William White

Udonis Haslem

“UD” is the first ever student from the PTC to make the NBA. After training all summer in 2003 here in Clearwater he signed a deal with the Miami Heat. He is now a legendary figure there after winning three championships and being a strong spokesperson for the franchise and the city. Haslem had to develop a perimeter shot and learn to rebound to make the NBA. He did exactly that.

Jason White

Gal Mekel

From a middling career in Israel to the NBA, Mekel is the only Israeli, undrafted free agent ever to sign a multi-year guaranteed contract with an NBA team. A PTC client since 2012, he is now considered one of the top point guards in Europe. He’s also the captain of the Israeli National Team. Listen to this interview, this is what we do. Our job is to both inspire our players, to “DREAM BIG” as Gal says and get them way better.

John Brown


And Yes! You too will be installing NBA level moves into your game too.

Belief & Trust


You have to trust us that we will deliver the plans needed to get better and see in-game progress. WE have to trust you will believe this process can work, and then commit to following our suggested routines.



As best as possible, build out a daily routine. Sleep, eating and hydrating, stretching, training, playing, studying, chores, down time--all are part of the life of an athlete. Our pro’s LIVE FOR THEIR ROUTINES. Be like them.



A written routine absent the commitment to follow the plan is garbage. Real players execute the plan they wrote for themselves. Be a real player.



Our game is a game of athletes. Not everyone can be Giannis Antetokounmpo, but anyone can work to be the best athlete they can be. Lean muscle, explosive movements, finely conditioned bodies are our goals

Skill Development


This means everything we can do with the ball in our hands. Dribbling, pivoting, passing, finishing, shooting, it takes years to master most skills. Let’s start now.

Basketball tools


Great hands, attacking the right angles, knowing where, when, and how to cut, rebounding tips, defensive work, Basketball IQ: we need to develop these just as we do your ball and shooting skills.



It may be a game, but it’s also a business that keeps score. We want athletes who compete against themselves and their opponents with ferocity



PTC athletes all over the world are known for their leadership skills as much as their on-court play. If you want his help you need to commit to being a coachable player and a great teammate. Win big but be humble.
