High coach to athlete ratios help maximize feedback and development.
High coach to athlete ratios help maximize feedback and development.

The success of our athletes isn’t just luck. It is a combination of coaching and work ethic. Our coaches have extensive experience playing and coaching at the post-secondary, provincial team and elite player level throughout Canada, the United States and Internationally. Basketball is their passion and they are continually expanding their knowledge and experience to benefit Rangers athletes. Here is some information about our leading coaches.

At Rangers Basketball Club, we believe in a high coach to athlete ratio in order to maximize individual feedback and development. Our grassroots philosophy not only supports the development of young athletes, but also the development of young coaches. Many schools are restricted in the number of teams they can run not because of a shortage of athletes, but because of a shortage of coaches. We had over 50 coaches involved in our programs last year! Chances are you will find a past or current Rangers coach in your school.
