FCA Coaches Take USHL Positions
Alexandria, Minnesota, August 10, 2016 – Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) Hockey Director Rick Randazzo announced that Coaches John Lafontaine and Rylan Galiardi have accepted coaching positions in the United States Hockey League (USHL). Coach LaFontaine as the Head Coach of Muskegon Lumberjacks and Rylan Galiardi as assistant coach of the Sioux Falls Stampede. FCA Hockey Coaches ministry will now have 4 coaches coaching at the highest junior level in the country.
Both Lafontaine and Galiardi have been involved in FCA Hockey Coaches ministry for several years, participating in (and leading) coaches calls that include other coaches from around the country.
They join Head Coach Jason Lammers (Dubuque) and Associate Head Coach Dallas Steward (Chicago) in training, mentoring and coaching the top 17-20-year-old players in the world. Each of the four coaches has trained through FCA’s Coaches Academy in 3Dimensional Coaching techniques and apply them in working with their teams. The method focuses on three dimensions of coaching, Fundamentals (Physical), Psychology (Mind), and Heart (Holism). Research shows only about 15% of coaches intentionally coach beyond the 1st Dimension. FCA seeks to help coaches go beyond the fundamentals to coach the whole athlete.
FCA Hockey is a ministry of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, headquartered in Kansas City, which has been conducting America’s foremost sports ministry for more than 60 years since its founding by such legends of sport as Branch Rickey. The ministry has a focus on supporting coaches, and helping them to be good leaders of the young athletes in their charge.
