Coach Robbie Ferrito was born and raised in Italy, moved to the UK & Ireland right after college and worked all his life in Finance, has a degree in Statistics & Economics and an MBA. Robbie moved to the US 10 years ago with his family, lived in Pasadena, CA until June 2019 when they moved to Reno. His son, Rhys, joined Sage Ridge then as a 4th grader.
Robbie is an avid runner and competitor and participated successfully in more than 160 races in the last 10 years since moving to the US. In the last couple of years, he has focused on Rhys, and coached him to excel all the way to the highest level (at the most recent XC Nationals, December 2019, Rhys was ranked top 60 in the United States for his age-group).
Robbie has truly enjoyed this coaching experience and can’t wait to build on it at Sage Ridge.
He is also in the process of obtaining his coaching certification from USATF, both for Cross-Country and Track & Field.
His coaching philosophy is “Create the best possible conditions for success, then let go of the outcome” coach Phil Jackson, Chicago Bulls.
The idea is that, once you’ve prepared mentally and physically for your game, then you are ready to do your best—and your best is the best you can do. At the end of the day, you find success in learning and improving, not just winning.
