Athletics at Palm Beach Prep
Personal Growth is the most important aspect of a Post Graduate Year. Our program is designed to emulate the daily routine of a college basketball environment. We want our athletes to be fully prepared and comfortable when they arrive on campus as freshman. Our basketball program is coached by former college players and coaches who have firsthand knowledge of the requirements to not only make a college roster, but how to succeed and earn playing time once there. We play a 40-50 game National schedule against the top Post Graduate and Junior College talent in the country. Our national schedule allows us to increase our athlete’s exposure to collegiate coaches across the country while at the same time gaining in-game experience against college level competition.
Our athletic program is designed to maximize athletes’ overall potential as collegiate prospects. We do this by focusing on three key aspects; their skill set as a player, their physical fitness as an athlete, and their mental toughness as a competitor. College coaches at all levels are looking for players who can make an immediate impact on their program. Incoming freshman have an uphill battle in their first year. This challenge entails both the adjustment to the physicality of the college game and the learning curve of the team concepts required to play at the next level. We teach our players what it means to be a part of a system and hold them accountable to the same standards that will be expected at the next level.
