US Sports Camps and Nike Basketball Camps are thrilled to welcome back Terrence Jones of TJ's Ultimate Champs to the Nike Basketball Camp Family. As the Director of our Nike Basketball Camps in San Antonio, Texas, TJ brings incredible enthusiasm, experience and knowledge to our camp network. TJ will direct several weeks of camp this spring and summer for players ages 9-17. Nike Basketball Camp at St. Luke's Catholic Church will feature intense weekly programs tailored towards individual skill improvement and competition in a fun and encouraging environment. Due to the recent gym flooding at St. Luke’s Catholic Church, camp locations have been updated (listed below under highlights) for future sessions.

Nike Basketball Camps are pleased to present the Ultimate Champions philosophy: In order to be successful there has to be a strong foundation. If a builder is building a house, he must have a strong foundation in order for the house to stand properly over time. Well, the same is for basketball. There must be a strong foundation in fundamentals for continuous individual improvement.  In addition to an emphasis on skill development, camp will also aim to improve each players athleticism and explosiveness. 

Highlights Include

  • Talented staff of coaches eager to teach and reinforce basketball fundamentals
  • Wide range of skill development drills
  • In-depth analysis of each player's conditioning and footwork
  • Discussion of nutritional goals and off-court activities to benefit on-court game

Meet your coaching staff
Camp Director

Terrence (TJ) Jones

Coach Terrence Jones has over 22 years of basketball experience as a player, coach and player development instructor. Coach Jones has always been a student of the game. As a child, he didn’t start playing basketball until the age of 14. With little help from coaches or relatives (Coach Jones’ Uncle played for the New York Knicks), he taught himself how to play the game of basketball by watching games on television and tapes on basketball teachings of various coaches. In high school he was one of the top players in his high school history (ranked 14th in the state). He later went to UTSA to become at team captain as a sophomore. After UTSA coach Jones still had the desire to play the game of basketball. After playing in Europe and a short stint in Mexico, he decided that playing basketball wasn’t a passion, developing players.

Coach Jones went on to pursue his passion for developing players and became director of basketball operations at Home Court America in San Antonio. As Director of Basketball Operations, Coach Jones was responsible for developing new programs along with maintaining and increasing the quality of the existing basketball structure. Later he had the opportunity of becoming an assistant coach at a division 1 university. At as a college coach, he was extremely instrumental in player development.

Coach Jones is very unique in the aspect of working with different age groups. For some coaches, it is very difficult for them to coach and develop youth and also have the same success with developing college level players and professional players. He works well with all age groups and is very successful with them.

Currently, Coach Jones is the founder and lead skills director of Ultimate Champions Basketball Academy and National Camp Director for Nike Sports Camps.

I enjoyed the most about the camp were the coaches. They were really really really nice. The games were very competitive and fun!

Camper Parent

  • 5/5.

Overall the Nike Basketball Camp was a great experience for my child. We have participated in many other camps before. The instructors at each training station took the time to make sure each child understood what was being taught and how this would benefit them in a game. Also each instructor would work with each child to increase their individual moral and ensure them with work they would get it down. Other camps I've had my child go to in the past seem to just want as many kids to sign up to benefit them financially. Instead of looking out for the player's benefit.

My 9 year old beginner improved so much in such a short time!  He wanted to practice more at home.  The camp director was excellent!  He is very knowledgeable, great with the kids, and also incorporated discipline (which you don't see much anymore!).  I would recommend the camp to everyone.
