Being trained in bio-mechanics I knew that his technical applications were an incredible gift to the world of speed and movement effectiveness. Due to his mentorship I’ve continued to develop as a coach from his progressive methods. As a sports scientist and researcher I attest there’s no comparable program available.”

www.joedanielfootball.com “Coach simple. Play Fast. Win” Head Football Coach at Amelia High School in Virginia. Coach Baskett and I go back a number of years. I was first introduced to his system while at Prince George H.S. as a defensive coordinator and performance coach. I still use it to this day. Coach Baskett’s system is the epitome of my philosophy to coach simple and play fast. His program is designed to perfection and I learned using it that you follow it or it will fail. Nothing compares to it on the market today. I highly recommend it for every program.
