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, with my newest position at PickUp USA basketball in Madison Heights. 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.
She was very good with the kids and helped them learn while giving positive feedback to enhance their skills
She helps me with being aggressive going to the paint and ball handing
Coach Shae really cares all about her clients and each of their development. She has very detailed skill-driven drills designed to help develop all aspects of your game. I highly recommend setting up some private sessions with her if your really trying to improve your game.
Shae helped me grow confidence in my ability to attack and break down defenders. She always makes sure you know the ‘why’ of a drill and expects you to go hard and push yourself.
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.
• I am CPR/AED, first aid, and concussion certified.

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.
