Matt Kimsey

Owner/Founder

​Coach Kimsey founded Fountain City Lacrosse in 2015 with a mission to reinvent "elite" travel teams in the off-season. Noticing a negative trend in many club programs around the KC area, the goal for Fountain City Lacrosse is to teach the game the right way, without breaking the bank for parents, and taking talented teams to compete around the Midwest, representing lacrosse in this region and preparing players for the next level with the best coaching around. 

 

Playing and coaching lacrosse since 2004, Coach Kimsey has over a decade of youth, high school, and collegiate lacrosse experience as both an assistant and head coach.  Coach Kimsey is entering his 5th year as the Head Men's Lacrosse coach at the University of Saint Mary here in Kansas City with an overall record of 28-29, building both the men's and women's programs from their inception.  In 2015 Kimsey was awarded the Great Rivers Lacrosse Conference Division II Coach of the Year and in 2016, 2017, and 2018 the Saint Mary men’s lacrosse program was awarded the KCAC Team of Character award.  2017 saw the Spires make a run into the NAIA National Tournament, and 2 of the past 3 seasons the Spires have been ranked top 10 in the NAIA post-season polls. Coach Kimsey has coached 2 All-Americans in his four years at Saint Mary as well as placing 13 Spires on All-KCAC teams, including the Offensive Player of the Year of the year in 2017, and Defensive Player of the Year in 2018. During this time, the Spires have had four NAIA Scholar Athletes in addition to numerous on the field awards. 

 

Coach Kimsey currently lives in Overland Park, KS with his wife, Janelle, their daughter Raelyn, son Callan, and their lacrosse-loving border collie Maverik.
