Ryan Robie joined PGC as a Basket Instructor in 2017 and will be entering his second summer as a Director. As a first-year head coach Ryan was searching for great resources to improve what and how he taught the game. In 2015, he attended his first summer PGC/Glazier clinic as an observing coach and has been a believer ever since!
As an undersized guard, Ryan began playing basketball at an early age and had success playing at a 6A school that had a tradition of basketball in large part due to his ability to see and think the game as well as paint the floor on the defensive end.
Named All-Metro Coach of the Year in 2015-16 and UKC coach of the year in 2020, Ryan is currently serving in his 7th year as the head women’s coach at De Soto High School in De Soto, KS. In his first two seasons as head coach, the team made it to the state tournament, a feat that had not been done at the school in over 30 years. In the past 6 seasons, his team has reached the state tournament 3 times.
The eight years prior, Ryan coached freshman boys and both boys and girls at the middle school level developing essential fundamentals for individual and team growth.
Coach Robie attended college at Kansas University where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Education as well as his master’s degree in curriculum and instruction. He is married to his wife Tracy and they have 3 children.
The quality people I have interacted with and learned from through PGC has inspired me to find more like-minded people that share a common passion for teaching the game of basketball and life! I’m excited to help SCHAPE other athletes and coaches as they pursue their goals both on and off the court.
