Pride in doing things the right way is what I'm about.  my greatest accomplishment is marrying my supportive wife Stacia.  We have 3 beautiful children who keep us plenty busy.


I have been an educator and high school varsity coach for 15 years.  I have 25 seasons of varsity coaching experience in 3 different sports. My teams have earned conference titles, a state title, and many players have gone on to play at the collegiate level.


While attending Linfield College I earned 5 all conference awards and helped my basketball team to the national tournament.  I was known for my shooting ability, 

mental toughness, and competitive desire.  Coaches appreciated my meticulous attention to detail, and I carry that approach into every player I work with.

Ryan Cruz Hoops players gain excellence in both areas of character development and on court skills.

Hear What Others Are Saying

"Ryan is the perfect blend of experience and teaching ability.  He has helped my son immeasurably in his shooting technique and mental aspect of his game. 10 out of 10!" 
"Our son has been working out with Ryan with both one on one personal sessions and group clinics. Not only has our son greatly improved his shot, footwork and overall basketball knowledge but he comes home and does his homework. If you have a child who wants to improve their basketball craft, I highly, highly recommend Ryan. His easy going attitude and attention to detail will definitely take your player to the next level if they choose to put in the work." 
"Ryan's workouts are very fun and my shot has really improved.  I can't wait to go back!  I love playing basketball with Ryan. He has helped my shot and my confidence.  My game has definitely improved."
