Steve to say thank you for having Brandon on the Ryquin team again this year. I appreciate all your efforts
putting this together and giving the boys a place to play, as well as Steve's time spent coaching. I know
I also wanted to thank Steve again for the training he gave Brandon last year. As you probably know,
Brandon has only really played one year of LAX and only half a season with the long stick. He has made
leaps and bounds from the time we first met Steve and I attribute a lot of that to the foundation Steve taught
him about the game. In fact, I'm not so sure Brandon would be playing at Davis next year without that. So,
again, please give Steve a special thanks for us."
-Dave, Parent 2013
"I can't express to you what a positive and affirming day we had at the Ryquin Tournament. We left feeling
like we were a part of something very positive and very fun! From the friendly and kind families on the
sidelines to the positive coaches and referees, all made today a breath of fresh air for many of us who have
been caught in the web of less-than-positive sporting experiences! Instead…we saw good sportsmanship
and love of the game! Ahhhhhh…what a grrrreat day! Thank you!"
- Charis, local lax team administrator
"The tournament was great. We were very impressed with the coaching and motivation from Jim and Andy
and Carson has really enjoyed his Ryquin experience this summer."
- Susan, Parent
"I want to thank you for all your time and effort working with all the kids, but especially for your impact upon
Kevin. He had the benefit of outstanding, and patient, coaching all spring and through the summer. I could
see on a daily basis the effects of your efforts on Kevin's development, particularly in light of it being his first
year playing lacrosse. We would be delighted for him to play for you in the future, any time, any place."
- Bob & Joan, Parents
"I just wanted to say Thanks. John loved getting to play this fall season. He had a lot of fun learning a new
sport." - Siobhan, Parent
"I thought the tournament organization was great, and it helped splitting it in to two days. Many kudos to you
and the team for organizing. - Scott, Coach
"Thanks for the great camp. My son Cole is 11 yo with and had a great time over the three days. He got a lot
of work on the core fundamentals of lacrosse form Coach Winn and the Ryquin staff. Cole is moving up from
7v7 to U13 next season. Coach Winn gave a good lesson on legal contact. Cole was dragging in the middle of
day three when the weather starting heating up, but after winning a New Warrior head in the shooting contest
he said, "I'm ready to come back next year!" - Jay Martinez, Parent
"My son was the winner of the Ryquin Scholarship this season, we are so very thankful...he was excited to
have the opportunity to play and learn from amazing coaches. Thank you Ryquin for supporting this camp
and his scholarship =)" - Denise, Parent
"Just wanted to also let you know that Kenny really enjoyed the lacrosse program this past weekend. He felt
he got a lot of good skill building help and feels he will be a better player because of it."
"I think the only thing you should change is the length of the camp. 3 days does help, but maybe making it a
week long event would make a more significant difference in skill. thanks"
- Eric Lee, Player
"I definitely enjoyed the camp. It was one of the better ones I have been to. It was a great bang for the buck.
Much better then most camps where its just like a normal lax practice with your high school team. The only
thing I would change would be more attack on defense drills; where the defense would practice their
defensive moves on attack men instead of other long poles. Great camp overall.
- Johnny Ploke, Player
