Ty Ellis

When it came time to hire the first Stockton Kings Head Coach, Ty Ellis was a clear choice. His clear and purposeful communication, teaching, and feedback built meaningful and lasting relationships with our players.

Stockton Kings GM
Coach Ty is a dedicated coach on and off court. Always willing to go the extra mile to help players improve their overall game.
Cam Reynolds

Coach Ellis has the combination of coaching intellect and relatability which is rare. Usually coaches have one or the other. I am now a coach and have patterned much of my approach after him.
