MESSAGE FROM RAY:
"My goal has always been to continue to acquire skills and apply them to make a difference where a difference is needed. In the coaching profession we have a responsibility to provide the the most productive and positive experience possible for our players and share what we have learned to help the next generation of coaches become better equipped to provide the same.
My mission is to help facilitate that learning and help transform the world of sports for all involved - coaches, athletes, and parents. I've traveled North America consulting with hundreds of schools, teams, leagues, and organizations about what works best. Let me share the results with you. My travels and experiences make me uniquely qualified to help you "cut down the nets" - figuratively, of course.. I can't wait.
