Hello Rocket Tennis Players and Families. We are so excited to introduce Ryan Hankinson as our head boys tennis coach. Ryan is a Grand Rapids native who graduated from Hudsonville High School in 1986. He attended Hope College and later graduated with an English major and psychology minor in 1994. He earned his teaching certificate in 1995. He is currently a retired English teacher at Reeths-Puffer who has been married to his wife Heather for 31 years and has two adult children Samantha and Michael who both were college athletes. He continues to coach tennis and basketball while “semi-retired” and while not coaching student athletes at Reeths-Puffer he reads voraciously, sees movies regularly, strings racquets for area players, enjoys bicycling, motorcycling, and traveling to all over the United States. His tennis coaching foundation began under Craig Gurr as a Junior Varsity Boys coach in 2015 and continued under Tom O’Brien. He has been the Varsity Girls Coach since 2017. He appreciates the amazing support top area coaches have provided him joining their ranks especially: Greg McMannus from Whitehall, Cody Liverance from North Muskegon, and Scott Zerlaut from Grant. His basketball coaching experience ranges from coaching nearly every level of basketball for both girls and boys. He was an assistant coach for the Holland Blast of the IBL, a girl’s varsity basketball coach for both Reeths-Puffer and North Muskegon. He coached JV and Freshman boys teams at Zeeland, Spring Lake, and Reeths-Puffer before the MHSAA moved both seasons to the winter. He coached AAU basketball for the Grand Rapids Storm under Jason Martin and traveled the country working for PGC camps (Point Guard College) in Texas, Georgia, and Illinois, as well as the Midwest which specializes in “teaching the game” like no other nationwide camps do under current President/Owner Mano Watsa and original founder Dick DeVenzio. Over 28 years and coaching nearly 100 different teams he most values the long-term relationships he establishes with players and the opportunity to mentor some of them throughout life.
We are 2 weeks away from the deadline to secure your tshirt, but remember you can still register until the day of the camp! We have 30 girls signed up so far! You don’t want to miss this! 🥎 Register here 👉🏼 https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeGpMgOed_if1GdFHY9ql3kayyjzpVFb15w-GRIFJeiOsAfGg/viewform
Attention cross country families and fans. We are thrilled to introduce Lindsay Keefe as our head girls cross country coach. Hello Rocket City, I am Lindsay Keefe, and I am a lifetime Rocket. I started Kindergarten at Pennsylvania Elementary in 1986, graduating in 2000. I started my running career in 7th grade when RP formed its first Middle School Cross Country team. I ran Cross Country and Track for RP through High School, and ran Cross Country, Indoor, and Outdoor Track for Michigan State - I bleed Green! I started coaching while in college for Gazelle Sports’ Marathon Training program. After graduation I went on to teach Middle and High School Sciences, and coached Middle School Track in Chicago. I have had the joy of coaching Reeths-Puffer’s Middle School Cross Country team for 12 year, including 2 seasons with our oldest of 3 kids. I am very excited to evolve my opportunity to help kids fall in love with “flying down a trail,” and building the self confidence to push themselves to improve. When I’m not on the trails you can find me doing yoga, downhill skiing, and on the water - paddling, swimming, and boating. Whatever I’m doing, it’s usually surrounded by a bunch of kids. I cannot wait to put in even more time on Muskegon’s incredible trail resources. Thank you Rocket City for this opportunity! C’mon, Rockets - Let’s hit the trails!
Summer weight room schedule attached! Plenty of opportunities to develop and grow in your craft. Make an excuse to get better.
