My name is Chauncey L. Jones and I’m the CEO of Ball Like Me Sports Management, Inc., where even the best athletes get better. I want to share with you a little of my past experiences with basketball. I have been playing organized basketball since I was 8 years old. The first team I played for was the blue team in the Oak Park YMCA youth league, wow it’s really ironic that I started my career in Oak Park now I’m helping start careers in Oak Park, now that’s what I call coming full circle, what an awesome feeling. I went onto becoming the starting point guard for my elementary; high school and college teams. Over a three year span starting with my senior year in high school up until my second year in college as a starting point guard I posted a record of 95 wins to only 10 losses, so I think I know a little something about winning. Basketball has given me the opportunity to see the world and meet so many interesting people. Now I want to share my experience with your kids. I want to teach the skills I’ve been privileged to learn over the years.
At Ball Like Me Sports Management, Inc. we provide kids with the skills to win, not only in sports but in life as well. Our mentorship program offers a lot of real world views from major winners in life. Our mentors vary from the dental field; Business Managers of major corporations and College Professors and they’re really good at stressing the importance of education and self- respect. I started this company because I wanted to help kids get the proper training they need to have successful careers. I want them to get advanced training right from the start. I feel I’m a very good trainer, why? I’ll tell you a quick story, I started training this kid 18 weeks ago, he had never played basketball but his Mother had a good feeling about me, I guess my presentation was pretty good. When we started this kid couldn’t shoot; dribble and didn’t have any concept of the game. After 18 weeks I’m proud to say he is a player. He has an identity now. He can shoot, pass, dribble but more importantly he competes well and has more confidence on and off the court. I believe in myself, I believe this is a global movement and most of all I believe this is what God wants me to do. Ball Like Me Sports Management, Inc. where Real training = Real results.
