Westminster Christian Academy has named Lindsay Carlile as assistant athletic director for the 2014-15 school year.
Carlile will assist Athletic Director Todd Zell in supervising and evaluating the school’s six-year athletic program. She will focus particularly on directing the Center for Coaching Excellence – a program to effectively train, serve and support the school’s coaching staff.
“My greatest passion is seeing athletes and coaches use the platform of athletics to glorify the Lord, so I am incredibly humbled to have the opportunity to support our athletic department in that pursuit with this position,” Carlile said. “Having coached at Westminster these past five years, I’ve been blessed to connect with many exceptional coaches and athletes.”
Carlile received her bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and pre-physical therapy from the University of Illinois. She has worked as area director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for four years. She has experience collaborating with area coaches, planning and coordinating annual leadership and sports camps, and assisting with professional development opportunities for coaches.
Carlile also has participated in the National Fellowship of Christian Athletes Women’s Staff Development Task Force and coached Westminster’s varsity lacrosse team for five years and JV basketball for two years.
In her new role, Carlile will continue to coach the Wildcats’ girls lacrosse team.
