About this pro

My name is Shae Oleta Smith, and I have recently been awarded by the Detroit Pistons for the Jr. NBA coach of the year. I have played basketball up to the collegiate level and currently, I am the CEO and skill enhancement trainer at Oleta One Basketball. I am also the first women Student Assistant at Madonna University for the Men’s Basketball Program. I participate in local camps, like BreakThrough Basketball, and have been apart of youth programs as an Assistant Coach. The youth teams I’ve coached were: RTJAA Major Thunder, RTJAA Minor 76er’s, and The Michigan Tar Heels 11U. My most recent accomplishment is beginning a podcast station called “Inside 94 ft.”

My services are to offer the knowledge and tools at an affordable price for players to have access to. 

I also have a lot of training content on my business page on Instagram, @OletaOne_Basketball 

I enjoy the progress each client is making and being able to provide the tools for them to succeed.

    It’s very competitive, and it pushes me to go hard everyday

  • Christine Bivins

    Shae is an extremely talented coach. She is persistent but also extremely patient with her students. She has a passion for teaching and skills development. I have seen massive growth in my daughter in just a few months — her mechanics, her speed and her overall attitude throughout the process have improved. Shae is responsible and I trust her implicitly with my daughter’s safety.

    Shae Smith is an excellent trainer. She does a great job with her clients. She treats them like family and always are looking to better them not just on the court but in the outside world as well. I’ve had the pleasure of watching her sessions in person and she is electric. I, myself even tried a session with her and it was a great learning experience.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

In the beginning, I observe the clients skills and abilities with basic shooting and dribbling drills. From there on, the workouts are specificically for that individual in order to work towards the main goal. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

• I am CPR/AED, first aid, and concussion certified. 

• Studied at Concordia Universtiy Ann Arbor and Madonna Universtiy 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

How did you get started teaching?

After being diagnosed with ventricular tachycardia and ending my playing career in college, I decided I wanted to still be involved around kids and basketball. Not only do I enjoy working with kids outside of basketball but I love to improve people and share my knowledge as well, which led me into coaching/training. I always strive to be that person that I needed when I was younger. 

What types of students have you worked with?

All ages and all skill levels
