Head Coach


Coach Ryan "Bernsy" Berns is an Arizona native. He played youth lacrosse with the Kyrene Warriors, high school with the Corona del Sol Aztecs, club ball with the AZ Starz, AZ Burn, and West Coast Starz, and ultimately was a defensive captain for the Arizona State University Sun Devil Lacrosse team. Coach Berns is still extremely involved with the Sun Devils lacrosse program as a board member and is the VP for the ASU Men's Lacrosse Alumni group.


Coach Berns has been coaching youth lacrosse with the Ahwatukee Lightning and Hot Sauce teams since 2018.

Outside of lacrosse, you can find Coach Berns spending time with his family (fiancé, Haley; mom Sara; dad, Jim; and sister Holly), hiking, or playing sports (men's league lacrosse, golf, tennis, pickleball). Ryan is also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ at Merrill Lynch.
