Elkhart Christian Academy is pleased to announce Jason Goon as their next girls varsity basketball coach.
Coach Goon comes to ECA after 14 years serving as a basketball coach within the Fairfield school district. He has also coached several AAU teams during the summer.
In addition to his basketball experience, Coach Goon is a faithful member of Grace Community Church in Goshen where he has served as an elder, a deacon and a youth leader.
Coach Goon states, “I want to teach teenagers about life as much as possible. I want them to grow as individuals and use teachable moments that arise with the hope that in the future it will help them to become great employees, wives, and mothers. I want the Elkhart Christian Girls Basketball Program to be known for being tough minded, playing hard, having great attitudes, having great sportsmanship, and honoring God with our actions. Those things will be instilled and we will not waiver from them.”
Richelle Viront, Elkhart Christian’s Athletic Director comments, “We are excited to have Coach Goon on board. He is an experienced coach with a dynamic personality who understands the big picture of what athletics are about. He is committed to growing and discipling our girls to not only be great basketball players, but more importantly, godly young women ready to make a difference for Jesus within their communities.”
