I played collegiately at Augustana University (South Dakota), and have coached at the junior high, high school, NCAA D3, NCAA D2, and NAIA levels. I have also worked as a skills and athleticism trainer, run AAU programs, and worked with young athletes at the Juvenile Detention Center in Seattle, Washington, where I am employed as an Officer.

I currently consider opportunities on a case by case basis.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Pat for the past several years. Pat is a man of integrity and high character. His knowledge of the game is superior. He is a person who cares for kids in their development on the court but more importantly off the court. Your kids are in good hands with Coach De Smet and I highly recommend him. Mark Prince

Our son played for many coaches on his way to a college basketball scholarship, and Pat stands at the top of this list due to the respect, confidence, work ethic, and love for the game that he instills in his players. While he holds them to high standards, he invests in them as a person and helps understand how to win at life.

Thank you, Rick! I know you're proud of the young man your son has become. So am I.

Having played for John Wooden at UCLA, I know what good coaching is. Pat De Smet is of the same mold. He knows the game deeply, is able to teach what he knows well, and is of the highest character. How do I know this? He coached my two grandsons. Swen Nater.

Thank you, Swen! It's going to be awesome to see those boys grow up!
