At the RSEQ Conference level, he was won RSEQ Coach of the Year seven times between 2000 and 2012.

He also served seven years with the national women’s program and was an assistant coach with the team that won the Gold Medal at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games. From 2000 to 2012, Smith led the Martlets to a berth at the CIS national eleven times. He has claimed three CIS gold medals, two silver medals and four bronze medals, respectively.
