"PLAYERS, NOT PLAYS"

ABOUT NJBC & JT

New Jersey Basketball Club (NJBC) is a youth basketball organization based out of Union County, New Jersey focused on teaching players how to play and understand the game of basketball. NJBC utilizes a games-based approach to coaching through the use of small-sided games (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4) to maximize learning and transfer from practice to the game and to create a more permanent change in performance. This allows for more player involvement (as compared to individual drills) by increased time possessing the ball, resulting in a substantial opportunity to improve and more enjoyment. Too many players focus on becoming great at flashy drills that do not correlate to the game. Basketball is a game of decision-making; we focus on improving players' decision-making by spending most of our time playing against a defense

NJBC is founded by Jonathan Toczynski (JT), current Head Boys Basketball Coach at Woodbridge High School and former Bergen Catholic High School Varsity Assistant Basketball Coach. Coach JT is a USA Basketball Licensed Coach, as well as a former coach at Snow Valley Iowa Basketball School, recognized by Sports Illustrated as one of the nation's top basketball camps. Coach JT is also a member of Radius Athletics, recognized for their members' ability to teach towards the modern game, as well as Thrive On Challenge, known for members' ability to create transformational cultures.

 

In his third season at Woodbridge, Coach JT led the varsity team to the program's first Greater Middlesex Conference White Division Championship in 42 years. Coach JT was voted Greater Middlesex Conference Coach of the Year for the 2023-2024 season, as well as Middlesex County Coach of the Year from the New Jersey Basketball Coaches Association. At Bergen Catholic, Coach JT assisted a program that won multiple division, conference, and state championships, while consistently being ranked a top basketball team in the state and in the country. Through Coach JT's time at Bergen Catholic, players have graduated to play at North Carolina, Xavier, Notre Dame, Fordham, and Saint Peter's, amongst others. Coach JT is also a high school teacher in Middlesex County.
