YOU NEED A 'PERSONAL' SHOOTING COACH
HOW YOUR MIND CONTROLS YOUR BODY.
Basketball, Like Life, Is A Mental Game.
Hi, my name is Coach Jones. Since the early '80s I've been coaching basketball players, two years old to 50+, covering pre-school through mens league and Special Olympians through college basketball players. I've had as fine a group of athletes teach me about basketball coaching throughout the years as any coach could ever wish to have, and I thank all of you.
My basketball coaching goal has always been to help athletes understand the game of basketball and see their potential, assist them in realizing their potential then blasting through it by teaching and helping them stand on their own shoulders (it's great to stand on the shoulders of giants past but sooner or later one is forced to rely on one's self).
I've been an avid student of NLP and it's many branches since the mid '90s, focusing on sports - specifically basketball. I've studied at length directly with the greats; Dr. A.M. Krasner, Dr. Richard Neves, Dr. Tad James, and Dr. Richard Bandler (in that order). This knowledge underlies my unique basketball coaching style, perspective, and teaching philosophy.
The single most important process anyone coaching basketball can be involved in is teaching basics; the single most important process a player can go through is learning basics. Coaches and players can communicate only when both are standing on familiar ground speaking the same language. When I say basics, I mean basics. Basics basically begin with the pass. A dribble is literally a pass to one's self, and a shot is literally a pass to the basket, therefore a great passer naturally evolves into a great dribbler and a great basketball shooter. The most important basic of all is that basketball is a sport, sports are games, and games are FUN!
I cannot teach all the basics of basketball on this website, in videos, in Books, or in clinics. Innumerable books and videos cover the basics of basketball. I do not wish to regurgitate all that knowledge. If you wish to gain basic basketball knowledge, and I encourage you to do so, go to the library. One can spend literally years studying basketball basics. Within the pages of this website I'll direct you to various publications, websites, and videos researched by me and deemed to be great building blocks for the information and philosophies I teach.
A great basketball player understands the theories behind defense and offense - however the theory underlying the basketball game escapes most people on the basketball court most of the time. I encourage all basketball Coaches and all basketball Players to read the Basketball Theory page on this website.
I don't care who you are, on this website you will learn, and understand how to execute aspects of this wonderful game of basketball you never even knew existed! The purpose of this website, www.BasketballShootingCoach.com, is obvious; teach you to become a prolific scorer. You're not gonna' hear the same ol' stuff here. There is currently nothing for sale on this website. There is however a FREE basketball shooting book, Basketball - It's All About The Shot. These web pages, the book, Basketball - It's all About The Shot, and the accompanying videos together comprise a FREE online coaching clinic. The Book, Basketball - It's All About The Shot, is unique in and of itself and is guaranteed to work!
There are literally thousands of so called 'basketball shooting coaches.' Having researched many I find they teach the same things; they teach mechanics; they teach complicated shooting mechanics. After learning the 'Mental Key' to basketball shooting, shooting mechanics evolve easily and naturally. Why don't those 'basketball shooting coaches' teach the 'Mental Key' to basketball shooting? They don't know it.
Thanks for visiting; all comments and feedback are welcome and appreciated. I'm interested in what I can do to help you learn what you want to learn.
