Sr A Men’s Teams across North America ,

Ryan is one of the best defensive catchers to come out of Western Canada. His ability
to call games and his superior receiving ability are Ryan’s trademarks. His extensive
playing career includes National Championships at all minor levels highlighted by a
Gold Medal as a member of Team Saskatchewan at the 1993 Canada Games. Ryan
has coached minor ball for over 20 years at all age levels, both boys and girls. His
unique instructing style pushes his catchers to develop a strong work ethic but keeps a
smile on their faces. His passion for the game is transferred to the athletes he instructs
as he teaches catchers not only the position but how to become better teammates and
leaders. Every year since 2014 Ryan has been instrumental in developing catchers that
have gone on to college careers in the NCAA.
