Westminster Hires David Klyn as Boys Varsity Basketball Coach
Westminster Christian Academy has hired David Klyn as its new varsity boys basketball coach. Klyn has served as an interim head varsity coach for the 2011-12 school year, during which he led the team to a 22-5 record.
Athletic Director Todd Zell says that Westminster is privileged to welcome Klyn to its coaching staff. “David brings a great deal of energy to the team, but what really stands out is his walk with the Lord,” says Zell. “He is a godly man who not only shares his knowledge of the game but also shares about his walk with God as well. He is a great example for our young men to follow.”
Klyn is the physical education teacher at Central Christian School and will continue in that position. His wife Karissa is the physical education teacher at Kirk Day School.
Prior to his service as interim head varsity coach, Klyn served on the basketball staff at Westminster for three seasons, both as JV coach and assistant varsity coach, and was voted a coach of the year in Westminster's district this past year. He also worked for Point Guard College and several universities as a summer coach/instructor during the past four years.
Klyn says, “I am excited for the opportunity to join the Westminster community and to train young men to use their gifts and abilities to glorify God and further His Kingdom.”
