Five plus years coaching at National Goalie School and local premier Club program in Cleveland;

My sessions include use of state of the art technology to allow athletes to immediately visually see proper form and technique for both drills, conditioning and and skills. I integrate speed, agility, footwork, clearing both in and out of the goal to build a complete lacrosse goalie or defender.

I majored in psychology and focus on the mental aspects of the game and building mental strength and confidence in my clients. My coaching experience includes my college Division III team, and high school and middle school athletes. I have excellent rapport with parents and recently coached a U12 team and enjoy working with younger athletes.

As a NCSF-CPT I can focus on enhancing sport performance for each athlete by providing players with a personalized sport specific conditioning program.

Prior to College, I played for University School, Cleveland, Ohio and was a member of the 2009 State Championship Team; Also, played for St. Christopher's School and Virginia Elite Lacrosse Team prior to moving to Ohio and playing for Burning River Lacrosse Elite Team.

Session Plans vary based on the skill level of the athlete. Initially, I assess strengths and weaknesses and identify areas of development. I use state of the art technology to provide a visual of proper form, practice form through drills and also focus on sport specific strength and conditioning. Each athlete leaves with a practice plan and other tools to help their development on their own between sessions.

Client Reviews

In a one hour session my son has learned more technique then he has anywhere else. Will be booking more sessions in the future. Thank you Coach!

My daughter enjoyed working with him. Was a good coach for a beginner.

All I can say after our first session is that my daughter said that she learned more in the single hour with coach Ran than she did in all her camps combined.

(no details provided)

Ran coached my 14 year-old dauhgter with goalie skills. She really liked him and learned a lot. She wants to return for more sessions...enough said. We all know how hard it is to connect with a teenager.

Ran was terrific. He easily and quickly built rapport with my son. He was an outstanding teacher as well. The session was filled with excellent drills and one-on-one learning. We left with enhanced skills and ready for more. Easy to coordinate scheduling and right on time too. Highly recommend!

Ran Kirby is a proven athlete and a tremendous motivator; an essential ingredient of any aspiring athlete's development. Ran's passion for exercise compliments his deep understanding of the science behind cutting-edge training systems and his knowledge of lacrosse.
