just the play.

Today Coach Perry is happy to be a part of the Like Mike Basketball family that offers a wide

Coach Perry philosophy is:
➢ Listening and effort comes first.
➢ Its’s not the drill, but what you are trying to teach.
➢ The offensive options are dictated by how the defense is playing.
➢ Play hard or don’t play.

Coach Travis Smith

I was always an athlete.  Whether it was on the basketball court, football field, track, or baseball field; being part of a team has always been a part of my life.

1993-1994 - Giddings High School  Varsity Starter Captain. -  Scored 400 points my Senior Year. I was a leading scorer, defender, and assist leader.

1994-1997-  Worked and Trained at University of Houston -Downtown as a Health and Fitness Coordinator.  Training was detailed to fit your goals in the gym as well as outside of the gym.

Currently,  I am an AAU Licensed  Basketball Coach working with Like Mike Sports.  I have worked at basketball camps such as Ronnie Arrow Basketball Camp and Mike Glaze of Like Mike Sports Basketball Camps.  

Motivating, teaching, and giving youths, from grades 3rd thru 12th, the vital and necessary skills, whether it is physical or mental toughness.  

Also, showing responsibility and dedication on what it takes to be the right athlete, in the sport 
of basketball, is very important to me in the development of an athlete.
