Coach Ivan Jones is entering his 12th year with The Fairfax Stars Basketball Program. He started his tenure with The Stars as the head coach of the U13 Maroon Boys’ Team & assistant coach of the U12 Black Boys’ Team. Since then he has coached the 14, 15, 16 & 17U boys teams along with 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th grade girls team. This year he will be the head coach of the girls 6th grade Black team.
Coach Jones is a former assistant intermediate school, JV and Varsity boys basketball coach at The Potomac School in McLean, VA. He has also served as an assistant intermediate school football and lacrosse coach at Potomac. Jones is currently in his 4th year as an assistant girls’ varsity basketball coach at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, VA.
Jones believes in “Hard Work & Dedication To Your Craft” and implements this motto into his coaching regiment. He feels that if you are not giving 110% of yourself in everything that you do there’s no need to do anything at all. For Jones it’s all about teaching life skills and lessons through the sport of basketball. He is a strong believer in making sure that his players are taught the fundamentals and proper mechanics of the game.
Jones has put together a very aggressive tournament/showcase play schedule for this year’s 6th grade team where the student athletes will be able to compete at the highest level among the top competitors across the country.
