The Legacy Athletic Department is excited to announce the hiring of Kaia Larson ‘10 as the Lions Head Girls Basketball Coach. Coach Larson was on the Lions coaching staff from 2014-2017 before taking an Assistant Coach position at University of Northwestern in St. Paul for the past two seasons.
During the hiring process, UNW Head Women’s Basketball Coach Aaron Kahl shared, “Kaia has contributed so much to our basketball program from her time as a player, to more recently, her time on our coaching staff. Coach Larson brings a contagious positive enthusiasm to a team. We all love being around her. Her knowledge and understanding of the game has always been very good and I am very excited for her to have the chance to impact the lives of her players in many positive ways!”
As a former high school and collegiate athlete, Coach Larson understands first hand the benefit and impact of athletics on a student’s path. She has a huge heart for reaching student-athletes for Christ through the platform of athletics. UNW Women’s Assistant Coach, Katie Dewitt, confirmed this when she shared, “I had the distinct honor of both playing and coaching with Kaia. God specifically gifted her with the talent of coaching and I was able to see that when I shared the court with her in both capacities. Her work ethic, commitment to integrity, genuine compassion, and love for the community at Legacy Christian make her a perfect fit for this position.”
When not coaching, you’ll find Kaia on campus at Bethel University where she works full-time as the Alumni & Family Relations Specialist or in the stands at any number of high school, collegiate and professional sporting events. She is a true fan of the game!
Coach Larson brings a highly competitive spirit to the Lady Lions program, along with a drive to see the program reach new heights. Please join us in welcoming Coach Kaia Larson back to the Lions court in her new role as Head Girls Basketball Coach!
