Consider Implementing BASIC in Your Community

Over the last twenty years, BASIC has been successfully implemented in four states in the USA and has been tested in Brazil. Note that the ABF is desirous of assisting in program implementation as our experienced staff can:

  • Train your staff in the academic and field BASIC instruction
  • Share content of the BASIC curriculum with partners
  • Share information on baseball/softball equipment that is safe for young children who may be of different development ages
  • Supervise the commencement of your BASIC program.

Ways to get involved

  • Become an affiliate by implementing a full, four or five-week BASIC summer program.
  • Opt for a one-week trial BASIC program.
  • Use BASIC lessons for after-school sessions dividing the time between sports-related academics and sports instruction.
  • Use four BASIC lessons focused on a sports personality for BASIC in-school.
