Where in South Florida can you find positive coaches who actually can teach an aspiring athlete the necessary skills to make it to the next level? The AthleticSelect team of Coaches Travis Smith, Eric Dolling and Leroy Collins offers a socially engaged platform that connects aspiring athletes ages 7 to 17 and their parents with experienced private sports coaches in their areas.
AthleticSelect only allows coaches who have played college or professional sports giving its participants personal hands- on experience and details of each respective sport of their interest.
One- on – one sessions are available as well as group sessions for healthy competition concepts and ideas. Smith, a former DB for the University of Miami brings years of experience in software development, sales and finance, and also launched the Real Deal Foot-ball Recruiting in 1997.
Smith will be accompanied by Eric Dooling, a former NCAA basketball All -American with the No. 6 Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) in the country. In addition his brother former 12 -year NBA veteran, Keyon Dooling, will provide coaching clinics. Leroy Collins, a technology veteran in product development and software quality assurance.
