He said: "We will create opportunities for our young players in the Amlin Challenge Cup and we will create them in a frontline team. So it won't be a team full of youngsters as that's not realistic.
"Max Stelling and Dean Hammond are the kind of people we would like to see push on. Our academy players are developing really well and we will see a couple of those guys involved around the squad as their energy has been fantastic in the Aviva A League."
Ryan has restructured the academy since his arrival in May and many of the players have already impressed the Warriors boss.
The JP Morgan Sevens Series in August, where Warriors progressed to the finals at the Recreation Ground in Bath, was a first chance for the Director of Rugby to cast his eyes over the young talent at the club.
Players have subsequently stood out for the Cavaliers side this season and, according to Ryan, a number of them are pushing for first-team spots.
He added: "There is a core group of about 10 young lads who play and train with the first-team every day.
"One of the challenges is to create an environment where these guys can come in and not sit on reputations to prevent their progression.
"The challenge of what we are trying to do here is to be a competitive side in the future and do that the right way.
"It might not change some of the results in the short-term but it will fast-track their development and, if we can get any of those youngsters to put their hand up, then we will give them the opportunity in the Aviva Premiership."
