At Shooting For Success, we’re so much more than basketball training.

We are a basketball organization dedicated to teaching athletes the right mechanics, a better understanding of the game, and a set of core values we expect our players to demonstrate on and off the court.

Our team is led and founded by David DJ Jones, known around the world as “The Shot Doctor”. Our trainers have all played elite level ball and share a desire to teach, inform, and grow not only better players, but better people.

Covid-19 update 3/24: distance training 

Due to ever-changing COVID-19 guidelines, SFS will be starting what we call ‘Distance Training’ within the next week.  This will begin with our competitive club teams and private training players and we hope to continue this program-wide including our fundamentals training as quickly as we can. Coach DJ (David Jones) has been using virtual training with overseas players as well as with his own daughter, Mailee Jones, who plays for the Vietnamese Women’s National Team, for some time now.  While it is different from in-person 1on1 training, we believe implementing distance training as quickly as possible will allow our players to not only retain their skills but help to create a sense of normalcy for kids during these unprecedented times. 

If interested in 1on1 distance training, please contact dj@shootingforsuccess.net.  We will be sharing information with our club teams in the next few days.  

COVid-19 health update

Everyone at SFS sincerely hopes you, your children, and family are staying healthy during these unforeseen times.  In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we feel it is important to communicate that SFS is working diligently to decrease the risk to our players, staff, and community while keep programs open as scheduled unless the environment in San Antonio changes or we are otherwise directed by local public officials.  In an effort to assist families while schools are closed we will offer an additional camp March 16 – 20 at a reduced rate.  We are tracking the latest information, statistics, and guidelines regarding the COVID-19 status and have implemented enhanced techniques for sanitizing basketballs, surfaces, and more to ensure our space remains safe.  We will be encouraging regular hand-washing breaks and use of sanitizer.  However, if you or a family member has been sick with a fever, cough, sore throat, or any cold or flu-like symptoms in the past 24 hours or if you have traveled to any high-risk areas lately, we ask that you please refrain from attending camp, training, or practice. We appreciate your cooperation. 

shooting for success kicks off middle school girls fundamentals program

A strong understanding of basketball fundamentals is crucial for our girls as they compete today.  Sadly, a lot of girls enter middle school tryouts without such knowledge and experience.  Good basketball fundamentals such as shooting mechanics, passing, anticipating the steal, playing big under the basket on defense and more are key during Middle School basketball for girls (and boys).  These are the basics upon which your player will build as she faces tougher and tougher competition in high school and beyond.  Imagine what she can do if she begins her journey in basketball with solid, strong, and correct basketball fundamentals.  It should not be the exception during these formative years.  It should be the standard.  At Shooting For Success, we are launching a Middle School Girls Fundamentals Training program for girls in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. 

Fridays 6:30 PM – 8 PM. Cost is $75/month.

shooting for success starts fundamentals program for beginners and those who need extra work

 

At Shooting For Success, we don’t cut players, we develop them.  We understand that not every player is ready for competitive club basketball.  Yet, that doesn’t mean he or she should quit.  That’s why Shooting for Success has started a fundamentals training program for beginners, ages 4 – 10 and those who want to put in the work to improve their fundamentals.  We believe in giving all kids the opportunity to enter club ball and middle-school ball using the correct shooting form, and sufficient in dribbling, passing, and other core fundamental skills.  

Fridays 6pm – 7:30PM & Saturdays 11:30 – 12:30 PM.

Meet David (DJ) Jones

I played professional basketball for over 13 years throughout Europe. I’ve trained some of the worlds best, and, I’m a dad of a collegiate basketball player.

There’s nothing I love more than sharing this lifetime of basketball knowledge and experience with your child.
