From 2010 Ryan has been coaching Putteridge Swimming Club, Modernian Swimming Club, Leighton Buzzard Swimming Club and recently at Dunstable Swimming Club as Assistant Head Coach. Within his short time as Assistant Head Coach Ryan has provided huge amounts of technique work and advice that have helped many swimmers shred seconds off their PBs to win at the Bedfordshire County Championships, and taken the junior team under his knowledgeable wing for them to be awarded their first ever Chiltern League round victory and to be the only club to score over 200 Points.
