Andy Deininger coached both of his older daughters when they played Parish Athletics starting about 16 years ago. His older daughters have officially aged out of the league, however he and Kristin still have a son who is in the 4th grade division, and a daughter who is in the 1st grade division.  Andy is responsible for the overall coordination of the league on the fields. He oversees fields, volunteers, communication with the board, and much, much more. When Andy is not on the fields, he is either doing kids stuff or working his job as a Sales Engineer.

Their oldest (Mikaela) is a Sophmore at UNC-Chapel Hill and Ella is in the 11th grade. While Ella does come to help at times, she spends most of her weekends at horse shows with her horses. Noah is in the 4th grade and has been a regular on their fields since he was a newborn, as has Lucia who will be 7 this year. Both will be playing Soccer and Baseball.
