Client Reviews

Great attention to detail. A really good motivator as well. Brings out the best during the training sessions.

I have two boys who have been playing basketball in Orange County for the last 10 years. Between my two boys, I’ve been involved in nearly every prominent basketball program in Orange County. Believe me when I tell you, your kid will never have this type of developmental instruction ever. I should add that my boys are completely different, one is a baller and the other plays just to play. Coach Smith treats both the same but obviously coaches the level of your kid. I loved coach’s practices and teaching however, my respect and admiration went to another level when I saw firsthand his live in game coaching. Orange county is so incredibly lucky to have him available for our kids. If you do not take advantage of his knowledge, you are doing your kid a disservice.
My son has been training with Coach Smith for 7 months now and I can honestly say he is one of the best coaches around. The level of commitment he has towards the kids is undeniable. His knowledge of the game is extensive, and I constantly see him teaching the kids new techniques. We have also had the privilege of seeing him work with older groups and he really does cater to the skill level of the individual he is training. If you have a child who is interested in basketball, you are someone who already plays the game, or you are trying to get ready for college or pro level, I highly recommend training with Coach Smith. You will not regret the decision at all. My son walks away happy each session with him and will talk about all the new techniques he learns. We are lucky to have him as a coach!
All the coaches my boys have worked with the last few years have been excellent. Lamont just takes it to a higher level. His attention to detail on building skills is tremendous and he relays the right amount of encouragement with firmness. The boys respond to him and it is fun, as a parent, to see them improve under his guidance. It’s as if my 11 and 12 year olds are getting high level college coaching every session with Lamont! I encourage anyone who wants to learn how to properly play basketball to seek his instruction.
