President & Founder
“. . . a coach inspires and motivates children from all levels of talent and creates a group of superstars.”
– Coach Smith
Coach Smith has been involved with youth sports for more than 25 years. Whether coaching baseball, football, soccer or basketball, his philosophy stayed consistent: The role of a coach is to inspire and motivate youth, winning is not the goal. However, when you inspire children to be at their very best, and instill a sense of confidence that no one can take away, the result is winning. Not only winning in sports, but most important, winning in life. Anyone can put together a group of superstars and then pat themselves on the back after a winning season, but a “coach” inspires and motivates children from all levels of talent and creates a group of superstars. Given Coach Smith’s years in Corporate America, he knows that sooner or later our children must face the real world, so his primary focus and goal is to create productive, well rounded individuals that will be successful regardless of the path that they take.
