A Note from Coach Pettis

Westminster Christian Academy Parents and Players,

First, I want to thank Steve Berry, Tim Hall, and Dr. Mosbacker for giving me the opportunity to be the next Westminster Christian Academy Boys Lacrosse Head Coach. I am honored they have put their faith in me, and I am excited to coach and mentor your boys on and off the field. I understand that we have quite a bit of work to do, but I am beyond excited to get started and start molding this program to what we all know it can be.

This program will certainly be different compared to years past, and we will be very successful both in the classroom and on the lacrosse field. My vision is to build on discipline, development, and faith in one another on and off the field.

With the support of the school’s administration, parents, and players, I believe that we will get this program to where it needs to be.

Thank you for your support Westminster Christian Academy family. It is time to get to work the Wildcat way!

Thank you,
John A Pettis
