In Memoriam: Coach Bill Kristinat

InMemoriamCoach William “Bill” Kristinat, long-time Fountain Valley HS Girl’s JV Basketball coach, alumni of FVHS, and Co-Founder of So Cal United passed away in October due to complications from cancer. Coach K, as he was known, coached FVHS basketball in the boys and girls programs for the past 25+ years…this is a sad loss for the entire community and Coach K will be missed by all.

A celebration of Bill’s life was held Nov. 1, 2014 in the Fountain Valley HS gymnasium for all who knew Bill. A tribute video can be found below:

A college fund has been set up for his daughter Andie Kristinate in his honor. All proceeds go to Andie, a sophomore and Varsity basketball player, at Fountain Valley High School. Checks can be made to FVHS GBB Boosters, Account #0060371644. In the memo line, write “Andie Kristinat college fund”. Donations can be dropped off at FVHS or mailed to:

Jason Spriggs, Manager

Fountain Valley, CA 92708

ShelleyandCoachKAnother way to help the Kristinat Family is to buy scrip to restaurants, grocery stores, or other stores such as clothing and gas. Andie will need these things at some point. The scrip ladies have graciously offered to collect any donations. OR if you buy scrip for yourself, you can designate “Andie Kristinat–GBB” as the student,  and any contribution that would go to GBB boosters will instead go into her player account to help pay for her shoes and other basketball stuff.
