You’ll get better, become more EXPLOSIVE, and improve your offensive game!
If that’s what you want to do, Jim Jones is the trainer for you.
Jim Jones has helped countless players improve and get the “B.S.” out of their game.
He focuses on teaching young players the fundamentals of the game.
Jones’ time in basketball goes back over forty years to his days as a point guard at the University of Nevada, Reno and Cal State Bakersfield.
He grew up watching players like Jerry West dominate with concise, explosive movements, and now looks to help young players achieve success with those same skills.
I saw Jerry West in person one time and I couldn’t believe how smooth his stops were and explosive his starts (first step) were.
His change of directions were so smooth and explosive that defenders had no idea he was about to attack.
Though he believes in doing things “The Old School Way”, he’s by no means out of date — he’s helped the former Bakersfield Jam of the NBA G-League improve their skills, as well as standout West Coast high school and college players such as Shabazz Muhammad, Aaron Gordon, Stephen Zimmerman, and Isaac Hamilton.
His coaching experience also includes six seasons as a Skills Coach at Fresno City College, who went 169-11 and won State Championships in 2005 and 2012 under his direction. Jones also coached between 1986 and 2002 at three high schools in California’s Central Valley: Coalinga, Bullard of Fresno and Central of Fresno.
“I think the biggest problem in the game today is young players spend too much time practicing 3-pointers and spot shooting to the hindrance of developing an all-around game,” Jones said.
“Players of past generations would go into the gym and you very seldom saw them playing full court. We would focus on 3-on-3 half court and there wasn’t a 3-point line so you had to learn how to attack the rim or shoot it off the dribble in order to stay on the court. I go to high school games nowadays and players lack the ability to effectively beat defenders in half court situations.”
By focusing on the core offensive skills Jones teaches, young players can focus on beating their opponents in the easiest, most efficient ways possible.
No wasted time.
No wasted movement.
While other coaches look at X’s and O’s, Coach Jim Jones has spent a lifetime focused on individual skill development and the footwork required for players of all ages to elevate their game.
Jim recently released a training DVD that includes an hour of his best drills.
