How will attending this training program benefit you?

There is a lot of preparation and communication required to launch and manage a successful BEST season. Even experienced coaches/teams sometimes fall by the wayside. Participation in this training program will solidify the communication channels between your team and SET BEST. Thereby eliminating unnecessary chaos at the beginning of the Fall semester. Each participant will have a firm foundation from which to launch their 2013 team.


Participation in BEST provides students a key to unlock creative problem solving skills, preparing them for previously unimagined opportunities!!! However, well informed teachers, coaches, and mentors are the key to program success.


Sign up before June 10th, 2013!!!
