More About Coach Ryan

Currently I am an assistant women's coach for Connecticut College.

Prior to working at Connecticut I had four years of experience as a High School girls JV coach and have had the privilege of working for a coach that stresses fundamentals and has won multiple state titles.

I have experience working with off-season programs, organizing shooting events, ball handling and summer workouts for both HS boys and girls teams and have also attended several basketball coaching clinics including but not limited to Nike Clincs and PGC Glazer clinics.

Also have experience working individually with HS basketball players doing skill-work during the off-season to prepare them for the upcoming year. While in the US Navy, I earned the designation of US Navy Master Training Specialist (MTS). I also have current CT Coaching Certification with Red Cross CPR certification.

References available upon request.

Varsity HS basketball player. I joined the Navy after high school and stopped playing the sport for a period of time. Competed in Navy tournaments and intramural leagues. A huge part of my motivation for coaching is to help athletes reach their potential, something I don't feel like I did in HS.

I firmly believe athletes and parents should be extremely comfortable with the sessions that I provide before commiting time and money; I will gladly work with anyone risk-free with no obligation or pressure. Also, if money is an issue, talk to me about reduced rates..... I WILL NEVER turn people away if they truly want to improve and simply don't have it in the budget.

No two players are the same and each will have specific session plans tailored towards getting the most of our time and helping them to reach their goals. I start each workout with a quick stretch and warmup to prevent injury and get the body ready to work - the warm up will include form shooting to work on shot mechanics.

Workouts will be focused on drills designed to get players BETTER -- and will emphasize ballhandling/passing/shooting/finishing fundamentals. The workouts are also tough, don't show up unless you are ready to work!

Client Reviews

My daughter attended a session with coach Ryan and was very happy with the drills and skills he taught. I was very impressed with coach Ryan's enthusiasm and positive attitude. I believe he will help my daughter tremendously and highly recommend him.

Ryan has been great!

A great leader and teacher . I feel like a better player already . He pushes you to be the best you can . Definitely will be booking him again

Coach Ryan worked with my team as a guest coach. He zero’d in on weaknesses and helped these individuals make immediate progress along with addressing the entire team as a whole. After just 1 session he made a positive impact. I highly recommend coach Ryan to anyone without reservation. I hope to connect in the very near future. Great work Ryan!

Great Coach brings as much enthusiasm coaching as you do to basketball great mentor

10/10 would recommend

Ryan is an excellent coach! He was very professional and knows the skills of basketball. My son Justin really enjoyed working with him. We will highly recommend him to anyone who needs basketball skills improvement. Thanks Ryan!

My son just had his first session with Ryan and I truly could not be more impressed. Ryan is so knowledgeable and had drills we had never seen before. He sensed when my son was getting frustrated with himself and not only addressed it right away, but put a positive spin on it. He is super personable and my son took an instant liking to him. We are looking forward to working with Ryan again.

Coach Ryan is terrific. My son loves his sessions and is improving quickly. Highly recommend Coach Ryan.

Coach Ryan was supportive and took the time to observe her play during a game. It was a great way to evaluate our daughter before coaching. He was able to get started on specific areas right away and he has made a positive impact on her technique. So far we have been very pleased!!

(no details provided)

Very patient and encouraging to both of my kids. They liked him so much they want to continue with lessons. They learned so much in one lesson already.

Coach Ryan is very motivating. He gives drills that push you and makes you better. Very supportive and wants to do everything he can to make you better.

Ryan isn't just a trainer. He's an encourager. Everything he does come from WITHIN. Personally one of the best trainers in the country.

Coach Ryan is very knowledgeable and is great with kids.I have been to many basketball camps all around Connecticut, and Coach Ryan is one of the best teachers I have taken my kid to. I highly recommend giving him a try, I will definitely continue to have lessons with him.

Coach Ryan was great! Good guy also a great coach.

Coach Ryan after two sessions has increased my handle by a ton . He always gives excellent advise and is very positive. The drills are very good and I feel like I have gotten much better after just two practices.

Awesome coach! Really encouraging and knows what he's doing. Already started to see results after only a few sessions. Will definitely recommend!

September 14, 2015 To Whom It May Concern: I am pleased to write this recommendation on behalf of Ryan Harings, an applicant for a coaching position in your basketball program. As a parent, I have watched Ryan coach my daughter for the past couple of years in basketball at the high school level. He is a wonderful coach who brings his knowledge and love of the game of basketball to each practice and match. Ryan takes the time with his players to speak to them individually about their strengths and about additional ways that they can improve their skills, and he is always willing to give his own time after practice or at additional times to assist them in reaching their goals. He develops a rapport with his players that is present both on and off the basketball court and has become a mentor to many young athletes, including my daughter. He is the type of coach who believes in all of his players and looks forward to helping each one become successful which helps to create a successful program. Ryan’s outstanding work ethic and dedication to his players make him an outstanding coaching candidate for your basketball program. Without reservation, I can attest that he has made an incredible impact on my daughter, both on and off the basketball court, and she will miss his presence this season. If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at (XXX) XXX-XXXX. Sincerely, Kristen XXXXXXXX
