Read Full Bio

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, TJ 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 he wasn't as passionate about playing basketball as he was helping 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.

More Important Camp Details

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.

CAMP MEALS

Lunch is not provided. Please bring a packed lunch or lunch money. A concession stand will be open for lunch and drink purchase.

Camper Evaluation

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.

Transportation

Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.
