About this pro

I’m a former NBA Professional and I coach and mentor kids. I relate to the kids because I remember what it felt like to be a scrub and what it took to overcome that. I’m heavy on details 

What I enjoy most is seeing the growth in confidence & seeing the transformation.

    He's the goat

    Everytime we visit New York City from Wilmington Delaware, Charles Jones gives my son Brady Daniels time in the gym. Charles teaches high level information that Brady uses in games right away. Charles teaches Brady a style that makes him hard to guard 1 on 1 versus kids his age and older.

    I've known Charles personally now for about 4 years. As a trainer he's "second to none". His methods are not just about "the what" but also about "the why". He knows how to assess the level of the trainee and give the best instruction for that level. Lastly his tough love approach instills a level of confidence that extends beyond the court. If you're in the market for a basketball skills trainer, you'd be cheating yourself not to call Charles Jones...did I mention he's a former NBA player who once led the nation in scoring when he was in college

    I just wanted to take the time to thank Charles Jones aka PointRUs for being in our sons corner for the past 3 years. CJ has been pivotal in our sons development. He made him believe in himself. He took the time when everyone else looked the other way. CJ knows how to show the kids what it really takes to understand and succeed in the game of Basketball. He is an underground NYC treasure. Do you self a favor and hit him up 🙏

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I start with the basics to create a good comfort level with the student. As I notice the students skill level I will adjust my drills and activities as I see fit. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I’m a former 2 NCAA Division 1 leading scorer and I was also top 10 nationally in steals & assists. I played basically professionally for 10+ years, 2 NBA & 9 abroad. I’ve been coaching for 10 years and developing players for just as long if not longer. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My pricing system is based initial skill level and expectations. People that come frequently usually get a price break because I see the students often, which makes it easier to work with them.
