Andy Deininger coached both of his older daughters when they played Parish Athletics starting about 17 years ago. His older daughters have officially aged out of the league, however he and Kristin still have a son who is in the 5th grade division, and a daughter who is in the 2nd 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.

Noah is in the 5th grade and has been a regular on their fields since he was a newborn, as has Lucia who will be 8 this year. Both will be playing Soccer and/or Baseball.
