What Other Coaches Say

“Coach Larson has worked with our Hamilton High School program in the fall for the last 6 years (16 years with our entire program). He has worked on skill development which includes ball handling vs. pressure, attacking the basket and different ways of finishing. Our basketball readiness has improved drastically over the years. The skill work has improved the confidence in our players and their decision making with the basketball. The attention to detail and the teaching of drills make Coach Larson the best in the business. The implementation of his teaching throughout our program has really helped our program take that next step. If you have a chance to have Coach Larson work with your program, you will be better because of it.”
Andy Cerroni, Sussex Hamilton 2018 State Semi-Finalist

“Forrest Larson is simply the best! The skill development drills that he uses with our players are some of the same ones implemented by many of the top Division 1 college programs in the nation. In addition, his overall knowledge and attention to detail are second to none. Our players and program have been heavily influenced by Coach Larson and we would not be where we are today without his help.”

Todd Fergot, La Crosse Central 2017 State Champions
2018 State Semi-Finalist

“Forrest Larson and his staff do an incredible job here at SPASH every summer helping kids improve their game. Coach Larson’s energy level, expertise, and drills are outstanding. Any player interested in getting better, in a fun and competitive environment, won’t want to miss this opportunity. Our SPASH kids look forward to Take It To The Rim each summer. Hosting camp has been a great benefit to our program.”

Scott Anderson, SPASH, 2015-17 3-Peat D1 State Champs

“Everything Coach Larson is teaching has a purpose. In his workouts, our players are constantly drilling and repeating work on fundamentals and skills that have a direct carry over to the game. It’s common sense workouts with game application.”

Jeff Boos, Sun Prairie High School, 2018 State Semi-Finals

"Forrest Larson is proof that you can be a great teacher of the game no matter where you are.  I would send my son or daughter to the Take It To The Rim Basketball Camp in a New York minute!"

Dick Bennett

"At the Take It To The Rim Basketball Camp, you will use many of the same drills that we use in our own individual instruction program.  The Take It To The Rim Basketball Camp is one of the best instructional and skill development camps in the country.  If you are serious about putting in the time and effort that it takes to become a better basketball player; I would strongly recommend that the Take It To The Rim Basketball Camp be a part of your summer schedule."
