In 1994, at the urging of El Rodeo Parents, Coach Smith established Bevwood Fun Camps, becoming the first independent program offered by the City of Beverly Hills for the resident’s children. Upon his retirement from teaching in the BHUSD in 2015, he changed the name of his after school and summer programs to Bevwood Fun Camp Enterprise LLC., commonly referred to as BFC.  Not only was Bill’s Bevwood program the first offered by the city, but in its 26 year history is the #1 vendor in the history of Beverly Hills.

From 1995 to the present, Coach Smith has shared his blueprint of professional teaching techniques, skills and strategies with what he lovingly refers to as the “Eleven from Heaven.”  These men, under Coach Smith’s tutelage and guidance, carried the knowledge and his philosophies to other schools.  Darrell Gay and Winston Harrison at UCLA’s, U.E.S., Ken Smith, at Carpenter Elementary and who created a Bevwood style program in the SFV called KRS SPORTS, Terry Clark, Donald Smith, and Craig Martin at Sinai Akiba Academy, Al Fields at Kadima Day School, Nigel Scott at Hillel and Yavneh Hebrew Academies, Cliff Williams at Rosewood School, Ronnie Winbush and Kelvin Trice at Pressman Academy. All members of the BFC coaching tree have had a hand in helping raise tens of thousands of dollars for its charitable fundraising projects, like the Big Bear Pro-Celebrity Jam benefiting the Bear Valley Unified School District, The Flying Doctors of Thermal, CA Project and the Willie’s Wish Fund, an organization that benefits Coach Smith’s mentor, Crenshaw High School’s legendary Coach, Willie E, West Jr.  Since its inception, BFC and its “Eleven from Heaven” family tree have instructed and coached over 250,000 students through their various schools and programs.  Their impact on the lives of young boys and girls is incalculable and BFC’s footprint continues to grow.

The story of “SOS” was a game changer. It inspired Coach Smith to continue giving back to others. BFC is a diverse entity that seeks to share “TEAM BFC’s” expertise and knowledge in the areas of curriculum development, student engagement, fundraising and professional educational in-service training.

Recently, Coach Smith’s “SOS” story has recently been optioned by a production company and is being developed for the screen.  Stay tuned and remember Coach Smith’s motto;

Change your habits, Change your game, Change your game, Change your LIFE..
