The organization Shooting for Success will hold 10 weeklong camps this summer in the Stone Oak area where kids ages 5-15 may learn basic or advanced basketball skills.

The background

Former pro basketball player David “DJ” Jones, founder/president of Shooting for Success, will lead each camp, which is open to boys and girls whether they are a beginner or experienced.

Representatives for Shooting for Success said the camps are designed to help participants develop proper basketball mechanics, a better understanding of the game, and a set of values that can guide them on the court and in their personal life. Lunch is included each day during a camp.

A closer look

Representatives for Shooting for Success said several past camp participants have gone on to play college basketball or for junior national teams in global competition.

Shooting for Success also offers private training opportunities, and club teams where players can further develop their skills and team-playing abilities.
