Matt Smith

Matt Smith just completed his third season as the Head Boys’ Varsity Basketball Coach at Gordon Lee High School in Chickamauga, Georgia.  He is also the Founder and Director of United Basketball Clinics. Matt has 19 years of coaching experience including 13 as a head varsity coach for both boys and girls. Smith’s coaching career started as a student assistant coach while attending Toccoa Falls College in Georgia.

Matt has worked numerous camps and clinics throughout his career including Don Meyer Camps, Nike Camps, and PGC Basketball Events.  His vision of wanting to see the best teachers of the game in the gym with basketball players, showing the concepts they were teaching led him to develop and create United Basketball Clinics. The mission of United Basketball Clinics is to provide first-class and affordable coaching clinics for coaches of all levels.  Matt is passionate about helping coaches grow as leaders, improve their game strategy, and believes “on-court demonstration” is the best method for attending coaches to incorporate the concepts being taught. United Basketball Clinics are held in various locations throughout the country including the famous “Hoosier” gym in Knightstown, Indiana where the movie “Hoosiers” was filmed.
