Personal Development

It’s Bigger Than Basketball

WHAT PTW is an invitation-only program providing high level training for boys and girls in grades 3-12 who are serious about becoming better athletes and committed to character development.

WHO We have worked with over 2,500 young athletes in the past several years – many who have gone on to lead their varsity high school programs and others have matriculated into high-level Collegiate programs as a result of their training and mentoring at PTW.

WHERE We provide small group and individual training, seasonal clinics, tournaments, and programming, as well as running town basketball programs in Metrowest Boston and Middlesex County.

WHY All young people deserve a chance to become the best version of themselves both mentally and physically. For us, it is Bigger than Basketball – it is about developing great people who also happen to become great basketball players.

Sign-ups open on March 29th

3v3 Tournament

My son's ball handling and finishing around the basket are two of the areas where he has made the most progress, allowing him to make his high school varsity team as a Freshman. Thank you DeShawn and PTW team. Success is a grind and doesn’t happen overnight. You have to put in the work over long periods of time. We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of mentors at PTW to keep pushing!”

Chris Sullivan

The PTW trainers always came prepared with plans that matched the age and skill level of the participants, and the feedback we received from players and parents was outstanding. We look forward to continuing our partnership

DeShawn Gibbons is an amazing mentor, coach, and role model; our sons have not only improved substantially as basketball players but have also learned important life lessons regarding work ethic, personal care, confidence via preparation, and self-awareness.

Dr. Ofer Levy

I highly recommend DeShawn and PTW for individual, group, and team training. DeShawn carefully organizes and customizes training programs for the individual player, communicates very well, and is an excellent mentor and role model.

Newton Basketball MetroWest

My son has worked with Josh Hall in both individual and group training over the past year. Josh pushes him and the other boys to improve through careful attention to skills — with an emphasis on what it takes to compete at a high level.
