Ron Beilsten has been the Head Coach of the Division 1 roller hockey team since the 2003-2004 season.
In his first 13 years, Beilsten has compiled a record of 385-14-5 and won eight D1 national championships. From the 2004-2005 season into the 2007-2008 season, the Lions won a record 109 straight games and finished three campaigns undefeated. The 2005-2006 Lions team that went 40-0 and won the national championship was inducted into the Lindenwood Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.
With Beilsten at the helm, Lindenwood rolled to another solid regular season during the 2015-16 campaign, posting a 26-2 record. After winning the Great Plains Regional Championship, the Lions were poised to run the table at the 2016 NRCHA National Championship Tournament. Three solid wins in pool play against Farmingdale, Michigan State, and Arizona State would give the #2 overall seed to Lindenwood going into bracket play. The Lions would go on to defeat Slippery Rock (1st round), but get shocked by Bethel and lose 1-0 in the quarterfinals.
While coaching at Lindenwood, Beilsten continues to coach top level club teams in national tournaments. Before coaching at Lindenwood, Beilsten was an assistant coach for the St. Louis Vipers in the RHI. Beilsten was also the very first roller hockey inductee that has been inducted into the St. Louis Amateur Hockey Hall of Fame in 2014. Coach Beilsten is an 8 time Division 1 NCRHA national champion.
