Hello and welcome to the Defy team! My name is Ryan Small and I'm the Founder of Defy Athletix. I'm a former Loyola and U. of Maryland player. At Defy we're obsessed with individual performance. We have assembled a team of what I believe to be the best individual player coaches in the game. Though we have coaches from great college programs, that's not what we care about - we hire great teachers. We believe small teams of great coaches is much more effective than large teams of okay coaches. These coaches are all trained in the Defy system, and at the highest level. Each coach leads their own event and inherently understands the Defy systems which ensures that every camper receives the best instruction available.

Feel free to browse their bios below and best of luck in your pursuit of excellence!
