Build-A-Skill Yoyo Company was created By Jess and Coleen in April, 2000 as a way to reach students and adults in an effort to teach the lost art of how to effectively use old-school toys. Success was very evident from the start in their teaching ventures and their philosophy of 'Getting a yoyo into the hands of children to help keep them from away from cigarrettes, drugs and alcohol' rings true to this day Sadly, Coleen passed away in early December 2012, but Jess still continues to run the program, visiting schools, after-care centers and a myriad of other events. They have been featured in several media outlets over the years, including Newspaper (Arizona Daily Star, etc.)
Television (Fox 10 News Phoenix, in conjunction with Bookmans) and Radio stations including 96.1 KLPX and KSAZ 580AM.
Teaching this lost art of eye-hand coordination through the use of Skill Toys, Jess has honed his skills as an instructor to teach and develop those skills to students and adults in a matter of minutes, thus reducing the time spent from the usual frustrating days and weeks of practice on one's own. Whether it is an individual session or a group session as high as 40+ people at a time, no one can teach as effectively as BAS Yoyo Co. After almost two decades of teaching, beginners and advanced users always come away better equipped than than they were when they first started our class sessions. We are generally available to bring the program to you within the states of Arizona (home base), New Mexico and Southern California. Contact information can be found below.
