There are few coaches who have a proven track record or have the skill set to develop a player over a seven to eight year "growth and development plan" and even fewer who have developed athletes who have been successful at the collegiate level. Although Ripley has influenced  over a thousand juniors in various formats academies, camps, after school, resort programs however his most effective format has been his full time virtual school training.

Two notable athletes that trusted Ripley with his  methodology  through their junior development carees have been Ruben Tores and Mika Lowrance. Both athletes reached podium finishes at the college level.
