OUR STORY

Who We Are

Born in Baltimore, Ryan and Deemer have competed against each other at the highest levels throughout their playing days and are widely regarded as two of the best shooters in lacrosse. They attended rival high schools, Calvert Hall and Loyola Blakefield, and competed together during the summers with the Baltimore Crabs, Gotskillz, and FCA. Only matching up once in college for Johns Hopkins University and Duke University, Ryan and Deemer continued to train together with Torre Kasemeyer and Gotskillz Lacrosse in Towson, Maryland throughout off seasons. Off the field, they’ve worked out for several years together with Jay Dyer Strength & Conditioning and have built a strong friendship. Both graduated college in 2016 and continue to compete for the Charlotte Hounds and Atlanta Blaze. In June 2016, Ryan and Deemer proudly announced they’d be East Coast Dyes sponsored athletes. Now residing in different cities, RBDC Lacrosse will take what they’ve learned beyond the Baltimore area and travel nationwide to train players and help the next generation of rising stars.

Ryan currently coaches for Marquette University, serving in his 2nd year as a volunteer assistant. In 2017 Marquette won the Big East Championship.

Deemer has recently joined Varsity staff at McDonogh School (Baltimore, MD), where he will serve as an offensive assistant and in overall player development. McDonogh is one of the top high school programs in the nation, competing in the MIAA conference.

I have had the pleasure of training Ryan and Deemer since high school and have witnessed their determination, work ethic and subsequent growth as lacrosse athletes, coaches and men.  

Ryan and Deemer will always challenge themselves to improve and turn weaknesses or flaws into strengths.  They continue to build on successful high school and collegiate careers as they shape their game for the professional and international stages.

I can assure they will apply this same approach when instructing the next generation of lacrosse athletes.

Deemer and Ryan are friendly coaches that easily connect with players. They break down the drills and skills being taught so that any age can follow along, and quickly see improvement. Having participated in clinics with other MLL athletes, my son says RBDC is the best!

 Your methods and level of instruction for the past few sessions since October, in addition to the instruction Ryan provided 1:1 has been nothing less than exceptional.  It has focused Mitchell and accelerated his level of performance more than any other training he has attended to-date.  Part of the magic is you are both talented lacrosse role models he admires for your lacrosse and scholastic achievements,  but more is the fact that you both provide positive and consistent instruction that not only reinforces key fundamentals but also raises lacrosse IQ. 

Parent of Scarsdale Training Group

My son got more out of his sessions with Deemer in 5 weeks than he received in a full year of sessions from other instructors. Deemer’s knowledge of the game plus his disposition with the kids makes him the perfect coach.

Deemer has one goal in mind– making each player better. His hands on, technical clinics are efficient, with no wasted time, to maximize the number of touches. Having played at the highest level, his drills concentrate on real game situatinos emphasizing quick hands, shooting, and dodging. His passion and love for the game are contagious.

Bill Lynch
President of US Lacrosse Arizona and Ahwatukee Lacrosse

Overall a very positive experience for our players. Your knowledge, skill, and positive energy were evident during the entire clinic. I look forward to seeing you again in the future.

We truly appreciate the detailed instructional plan and your ability to cater to the multiple skill levels and ages of players that attended the Greensboro RBDC Offensive skills clinic. We are looking forward to the next time you guys are in town and pumped to be partnered with RBDC lacrosse! Thank you again for spending quality time with our boys!

Jim Rood
Maryland Wolfpack

Ryan Brown and Deemer Class provided a great training experience for our MD Wolfpack players by not only teaching the proper skills required to be a top lacrosse player but for taking the time to get to know our players and interacting with them one on one. Our players learned a lot but more importantly they left the RBDC Clinic a little better then when they arrived. We look forward to working with Ryan and Deemer again in the near future!

Ryan Grimes
Looney’s 2020 Coach

RDBC and Deemer Class has worked with our Looneys 2020 Orange team several times in the past year. They run a very structured skills and shooting focused practice session. They have also worked with small groups of players from our team outside of our normal practices. Our players enjoy the the high rep, skill focused sessions and have really benefited from it. The fact that their coaches are younger than most high school and club coaches also helps our guys relate to them more. RDBC does a great job of talking to our guys about what it takes on the field and off the field as well since they were in their shoes not too long ago. They have really helped a lot of our Looneys 2020 players.

Dave Mitchell
Next Level Lacrosse Owner and Director

RBDC ran a shooting clinic at our facility this fall and the feedback has been tremendous. Our elite level players loved RBDC’s intense focus and breakdown of the proper shooting mechanics and fundamentals. Their ability to effortlessly relate to our young men while simultaneously challenging them to work hard is a rare gift, and we hope to have the RBDC team back again in the future.

Working with Deemer Class and Ryan Brown has been a pleasure from start to finish. As a club director in Minnesota, Deemer and Ryan did not hesitate to partner with us and were thorough in their communication. Not only was it great for the boys to be coached by some of the best MLL players in the world, but the passion they had for each player was remarkable- their authentic personality, coaching ability, and strategy was the best I have come across in the last 10 years.

Baltimore Parent

My son moved up from his A to AA team after training with Deemer last summer!  He came to tryouts in August and was noticed by coaches and parents- cannot tell you how many made comments and asked what he had been doing! He wasn’t even the same player! Unquestionably, this happened because of Deemer’s instruction. Not until working with him did his skills and development really accelerate.  As a coach, Deemer has shown not only is he a great player, but he has that rare skill to translate his high level of play into trainable skills he can teach others.  And Deemer’s disposition with the younger guys in particular is a character trait that makes my son‘s time with him invaluable. My son looks forward to it every time:)

Deemer…Just a quick note to say thanks for all the time and effort you’ve put into training Drew over the last seven months. The combination of both individual and group sessions have really helped to develop not only his lacrosse skills but his confidence as well. Your focus on technique and attention to detail is really showing in Drew’s game and he’s realizing through your efforts together how much hard work pays off. Additionally, the way that you have the boys process “why” they are working on what they are working on has really helped his lacrosse IQ and his field awareness. We look forward to Drew training with you for years to come. The best part, he has a blast training with you.

I was looking for an opportunity for my daughter to improve her shooting skills. Ryan and Deemer provided great instruction focusing on shooting technique and gave her individual attention to her form during the group training sessions. The level of play was competitive and allowed my daughter to work to her greatest potential.

Joyce Aiello
Parent, Baltimore MD

What amazing coaching! Deemer is so calm and clear with extremely precise explanations and direction in his training. He is so detail oriented in his ability to correct and explain areas for improvement, but does so in a way that my son instantly wants to work on fixing them and grow as a player.

Erin B.

My high school daughter did lessons with Deemer to get primed for varsity tryouts. He helped her gain confidence with lots of stick-work, dodging and power shooting, and she walked into tryouts self-assured and ready to go!

I can tell you that I am happy to hear that you enjoyed coaching Evan this winter. I can also tell you that not only did Evan really enjoy working with and for you but I enjoyed watching you coach him. You have a great demeanor with the players. Your ability to teach and explain the advanced concepts you want the players to execute is exceptional. The progress in Evan’s game is certainly noticeable and we look forward to finding time for you to work with Evan in the future.

Paul Schofield

Coach Class is an outstanding teacher! My daughters, my son, and a number of other club lacrosse players that I have coached, have all benefited greatly from his instruction. Obviously, he is a tremendous lacrosse player, but he also has a true gift for breaking down technique in a way that players understand. My kids really look forward to training with him! Coach Class is first-rate in every regard!!

Unparalleled coaching and attention to skill development from one of the best known collegiate and pro shooters in the business.

We were lucky enough to get Deemer out in SoCal to help us kick off our spring rec season in February. He worked with our girls middle school, boys U13/15 and boys HS teams. There were a lot of kids with wide variances in experience levels but Deemer jumped in, undeterred, with positive and infectious energy. The sessions were packed full of instruction but also flexible enough to allow for individual attention to punctuate a technique or to go over a drill that might have been lost on a player the first time through. The results were immediately noticeable and the kids had a blast. They still talk about the clinic and have been asking when we can do it again. There is a definite skill in being able to tailor and execute a practice plan that works for both beginners and kids who have been playing for a while. Deemer was adept at keeping everyone involved. We are fired up for the next one!

….On top of that, your game film review and consultation now adds offensive strategy to the fundamentals developed in previous on field instruction. This is an invaluable tool for “M” and it is incredibly time and cost efficient.

The online submission is so convenient and helpful because I can send in the best portions of my shooting workout, and then receive feedback regarding footwork, explosion, and hand placement. This has helped take my shooting to another level.
