My daughters started working with Mr. Ryan at the U13 level when he acted as their club coach. His focus was clearly on skill development for all players giving them very solid fundamentals to work from while discovering the joy of the sport of volleyball. They have continued to work with him for the past 4 years developing their skills to a level now that each now plays on Division 1 level teams in club volleyball. He is passionate about developing each player to the best of their ability through strong foundations in fundamental basics and building each players individual skills from that base toward a high level of play. He is able to see small errors in form and function which when corrected, lead to large gains for the athlete. He believes in making each player as good as they can be, to give them the skills they need to succeed at the sport and always maintain the love of volleyball. I would recommend him for an athlete of any age or level for volleyball skill development and passion for the game.
