      Our Vision

      Having coached for over 20 years at the D1 level, Coach Smith, brings a unique combination of methods, disciplines, and experiences to player development. The overall organization, structure, attention to detail, preparation, communication, teachings, knowledge of the game and accessibility are what separates LSBA from other programs! Our customized workouts are designed to focus on each player’s specific needs. We teach and emphasize the fundamentals of the game in every workout, while also taking great pride in studying the trends of the game. Innovative and outside the box perspectives will always be at the forefront of our teachings. Our vision is very simple; we want to grow each player and their game.
