Who is Coach GRuf?

Ruf Sports is the brainchild of George Ruf (“GRuf”), a PTR Certified Tennis Professional and seasoned softball and baseball coach of over 45 years.

For George, player development is his art form; he excels in motivating players to go beyond their comfort zone and taking them to the next level. As a result, he has a track record of leveling-up high-potential players, whether that’s helping them transition from recreational leagues to travel softball, move from the bench to All-Conference and All-State, or compete in a collegiate environment.

"For George, coaching is less a job and more a way to connect with an support the softball, baseball, and tennis communities."
Before starting Ruf Sports, George honed his teaching techniques and drills by coaching his three kids from tee ball through college, providing private tennis lessons to kids and adults, and supporting ages 10+ for Little League, the Lady Fireballs, the Chester County Stars, the Fusion, and most recently the Oxford Divas. With Fusion, he supported the development of a 12U fastpitch softball team for 6 years, seeing them compete at the 18U level and then graduate to college.

For George, coaching is less a job and more a way to connect with and support the softball, baseball, and tennis communities. Even if his schedule’s completely full, he encourages high-potential players to reach out, connect, and start a conversation about leveling-up their talent.
