Coach Ryan was great! My 10 yr old son is looking to reach the next level, and when football was cancelled this year he told us he wanted to work with a basketball coach. Coach Ryan in our first session has already helped fine tune his shot, helped him with his footwork to start left handed layups correctly, and his footwork for shooting off the dribble better! My son had fun working hard, and that’s not something every coach is able to do... I would definitely recommend booking Coach Ryan if you are thinking about it at all!
Coach Ryan was very patient with my 8 year old who has recently expressed an interest in playing basketball. They did alot in their session. Afterwards, my son was enthusiastic about future practice sessions. He's learning proper techniques early and that is exactly what I wanted from 1 on 1 coaching sessions.
Ryan’s a man of great character and integrity. He is committed to doing things the right way. One of his goals is to be a contributing factor in seeing others reach their goals. A fierce competitor, Ryan makes it his aim to do everything he can do to make the team successful. He is one who gives it all in the midst of competition, with honor and respect for others. He is a tireless worker with tremendous knowledge of the game of basketball.
Ryan Wise has an inclusive rather than exclusive mindset. He always embraces the involvement of others and is ready to help others, as well. He sets an impeccable example of cooperation and excellence for all who work for, with, and around him. His professional way of handling people earns him great favor.
In getting to know Ryan Wise over the past couple years, I have found him to be very organized, hard-working, very intelligent, conscientious of others, and very knowledgeable of the game of basketball. In fact, he picked up our offensive and defensive systems and terminology very quickly. He was integral in the 2017 season in helping our team to a 20-12 campaign, a #25 final national ranking, and a trip to the NAIA National Tournament in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
In my 40+ year basketball career of playing and coaching I have had the opportunity to have Roy Williams when I was a teenager at basketball camp, attend coaching clinics with the likes of Jerry Tarkanian, John Belein, Bob Huggins, and Don Chaney, coach many young men and women on high school and youth teams, as well as play at a DIII college, Washington & Lee. I have two former players that are college coaches with a third on the way. I also have four former players who played at the college level and another who plays for me presently that will certainly play in college at some level. I only say this to say that in all of this it is rare to find someone like Ryan that has the perspective, personality, character and acumen required to be not just effective in coaching at the college level, but beyond this to be impactful in any environment.
Coach Wise teaches a lot more than just skill set. He teaches you how to think the game. He has the capacity to motivate even the best to find greatness beyond what they’re capable of achieving on their own.
Coach Ryan Wise has a great feel and knowledge for the game. He also has a gift when it comes to working with young players and helping them understand and apply skills & concepts of the game of basketball.
Ryan is a rising star in player development. His experience and knowledge of the game will take any player to the next level.
