Head Boys Varsity Basketball Coach
Boys Varsity Basketball
Prior to joining CVCS, Chris has served as a coach for Mayfair High School, Bellflower High School, and Orange Lutheran High School. Coach Childress's greatest strength is in skill development and mentorship for professional, college, and high school athletes.
Coach Childress started his official coaching career in 2010 as a way to educate student-athletes on the overwhelming process of becoming college athletes. It turned into a passion for developing youth through sports. He is dedicated to bridging the gap between sports and faith while bringing a championship mentality to CVCS.
When Coach Childress isn’t teaching the game of basketball, he enjoys spending time with his beautiful family. Chris is thankful for his wife (Michelle), son (Kevin), and daughters (Chloe and Camryn) for allowing him to live out his dream as a basketball coach.
Chris’s Coaching Philosophy:
Although high school athletics is the most competitive level our athletes can compete at within the community, success is more than just wins and loses. Being a scholar-athlete is not easy, nor is it a right, but that’s what makes it so rewarding. Our goal for the Capistrano Valley Christian Basketball Program is to change the culture of what it means to have “CVCS Pride.” Athletes are role models, especially to the youth and because of this, we have a tremendous impact on the lives of others. As a family, we will develop a reputation of being honorable members of our community. We will achieve this goal by having a positive attitude, a strong work ethic, undying commitment, unwavering self-confidence, an ultimate concept of team, and most importantly by making sure our FAITH shines front and center before anything. It takes a special person to succeed in athletics and in life, but every successful person needs help in doing so. It is through athletics that we hope to instill these habits and core values that will create special young men who will become successful adults. We will not settle for average, only aspiring to be exceptional.
“AS A FAMILY, WE WILL STRIVE FOR GREATNESS!”
We believe Coach Childress is a landmark hire in building a program that will allow us to join the elite programs in all of Orange County. We take this step for the ultimate goal of reaching more young people to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through a truly exceptional Christian education. Please join me in welcoming Coach Childress and his beautiful family to the CVCS community.
