The Ultimate Scouting Experience


About the "Scouting Experience"

The Scouting Experience is a two-day, intensive event that will take participants inside the life of an NBA Scout. You will get hands-on training from 14 yr NBA scout/executive, Pete Philo (Mavs, Twolves & Pacers) and founder of the "Eurocamp" that has produced over 100 NBA Intl draft picks. Not only will you receive presentations on talent evaluation but you will also scout NBA prospects during live college games and discuss your evaluations. Each Experience will be limited to only 25 participants.

TPG has a long history of educating future leaders in the basketball and scouting industry. See Testimonials

JON CHEPKEVICH
STATS LLC



"Pete is not only well-versed in the ins-and-outs of the NBA landscape, but is more than willing to share his knowledge, insight, and experiences. The Mentorship Program is a unique opportunity to receive one-on-one, candid feedback and advice from a former front office executive. Pete truly wants the best for you - and helps to develop a personalized plan to catalyze your pursuit of a career in basketball."


DEVIN SMITH
PHOENIX SUNS



“Pete has a wealth of knowledge about the inner workings of the NBA. Having him as a mentor is an invaluable experience. He gives the advice you need to hear and not always what you want to hear. That’s the way it should be."


ANDREW DOZER
CHARLOTTE HORNETS



“Attending Pro Scout School/GM Experience gave me the tools and introductions needed to break into the industry. The access and ability to meet with and learn from some of the top executives in the game is not something that is offered at many other conferences you can find. You get a unique look into various aspects of an NBA Front Office and leave with tools and best practices that I continue to use on a daily basis today. I met some of my closest mentors at Pro Scout School and can’t thank Pete Philo and the TPG staff enough for the opportunity to get in the same room with some of the brightest minds in the game.”


ARTHUR MORIERA
UNIV. OF SAN FRANCISCO BASKETBALL



“I had the opportunity to connect with multiple people that I am still in touch with. Pete has been great with following up and always open to give career advice! Learning how important relationships are had a tremendous positive impact in my career. Made me a better coach and better recruiter.”
