Senior Director of High Performance and Player Development
Ryan has been coaching for over 20 years. In that time he has worked for over a decade with only high performance players, consistently developing them into top 20 national players and beyond. His players have won Gold and Silver balls, numerous USTA national titles and are competing in ITF and Pro Circuit events. He has been successfully sending players on to flourishing college careers as well.
Ryan has traveled the country for over ten years guiding and mentoring players through the demanding, yet rewarding path of competitive junior tennis. He strongly believes that it is his abilities to build relationships that have allowed him to develop the players that he has been privileged enough to work with.
Ryan believes in building all court tennis players who posses well rounded skills- possessing self awareness and adaptive skills and who concentrate at extremely high levels. Ryan feels that players need to deserve success through hard work, commitment, problem solving and struggle.
Difficult periods in training and in matches are where greatness is discovered, cultivated and refined.
“Nothing great was ever accomplished without setbacks and obstacles. It is these moments in which we develop our resolve and determination. It is in these situations that we are defined as a competitor.”
Ryan is married and has two daughters; his oldest Ellyse is one of the top players in the country. Grace is a champion in the making. Ryan having children who love tennis and compete at the highest levels of the game gives him unusual insight into what parents experience along their child’s developmental pathway. Having been on this same journey as both parent and coach allows Ryan to assist in the most empathetic and professional ways to guide families and players towards their goals.
A Special Letter from Ryan Ginley about The USTA New England 12s, 14s, 16s, 18s Super Six Sectional Championships (Level 3) – June 24-28 @ UMASS (Amherst, MA)
I want to thank everyone for what was the greatest single week of my professional career. The teamwork, camaraderie and success during the recent New England Sectional Championship was amazing. The players, parents and staff of coaches and trainers did an incredible job of playing their part and “Setting the Tone!”
Our player’s played their hearts out as Intensity was not just a program name, but an identity. Everyone fought and battled and did exactly what we emphasized for the month leading up; concentration, consistency, compete and composure/calm. I felt good about our preparation going into the event, but once I saw how everyone handled themselves I knew we had planned perfectly to peak for this event.
I cannot thank the parents of our players enough. They were all terrific and supportive to both their children and our staff. Well done by you all. It is a joy to have such professional and appreciative parents in our program.
I am indebted to our staff of elite coaches and trainers. It is such a pleasure working with all of you everyday. I am so lucky to be on the same team as all of you. Everyday is a joy to come to this program because of our common goals, philosophies and enjoyment of each other personally. This week was the culmination of 9 months of work and I have never been more pleased with the results and enjoyed myself more than this years event. We are absolutely heading in the right direction and at a consistent and determined pace. The best is yet to come.
Special congratulations to Ellyse Hamlin and Nick Condos for their championship runs. These were special and very meaningful accomplishments. What a great way for Ellyse to end her New England sectional career.
Sam Svendsen had a tremendous run to the finals and put herself in position for the title playing the best tennis of her life. She will learn a great deal from the experience.
Sam and Nick have achieved career high national rankings with these results. Nick is #85 and Sam in #95 in the country!! Big congrats to you both.
Andrew Mercorella and Ally Daquino also achieved their first national rankings after getting wins at the event. Congrats to you both. Lots more to come.
I hope to see you all this summer. The fall schedule and sign ups will begin soon so stay tuned as we continue to SET THE TONE!!!!
