Rick Torbett is often regarded as among the best teachers of basketball in the world today. His lead role in the Better Basketball videos is one of the reasons they’ve achieved such a high level of value to coaches everywhere. Coach Torbett strives to make even the most advanced techniques so easy to understand that even very young players grasp them quickly and apply those systems to their own game.

Coach Torbett’s techniques have been proven to surpass those of coaches whose teams are in the NBA. For example, in the last six seasons only two NBA teams averaged over 40% from the 3-point line. Coach Torbett managed to coach entire teams to shoot over 40% for three consecutive seasons – a stunning achievement in or out of pro ball.

It’s not spending more hours on the court that achieves results like that. NBA players are out there drilling for a full-time job. It’s better basketball theory and advanced coaching techniques that make the difference, and Coach Torbett makes sure every video achieves this high standard of performance.

Coach Torbett spent 24 years as a high school coach with an overall winning percentage of 70% at four different schools, helping players earn scholarships to premier collegiate programs. He’s since devoted himself to traveling the world to study more sophisticated coaching techniques and to garner even more knowledge about how to better play the game of basketball.
