*Parents, a coach, or an adult the players works with at home are highly recommended to attend to a minimum of 2 sessions. We want to ensure the adult who works with the child at home has a sound understanding of how the child has progressed and what they need to be working on between sessions. 

 

About Coach Bill Ryan

With over 25 years of experience as a coach and private instructor specializing in Pitching, “Wild Bill” Ryan has worked with over 500 athletes ranging from youth ranks to the college level, polishing and developing pitchers for years.

Bill utilizes an individual approach to developing player mechanics; he believes that our bodies are genetically designed to do things like throw a ball at a target, and coaches players to relax into being successful with their own natural abilities. Rather than relying on a single coaching philosophy, Bill remains flexible in his coaching which allows his players’ individual talents to flourish within the structure of a team’s system.

Coach Ryan has spent five seasons as Pitching Coach with the Menlo Park Legends Collegiate summer team, and is currently the Pitching Coach at Menlo-Atherton high school.He carries certifications from the National Pitching Association and the Tom House/ Rod Dedeaux Baseball Institute, but considers his greatest accomplishment to be that the players he coaches return to the sport of baseball year after year, competitive and healthy.
