Coach Chris co-founded 5 Star Sports back in 2003 to pass on his love and knowledge of sports to the next generation. Throughout his life sports not only showed him crucial life skills such as team work and self-confidence, it was also a way to get through some tough times. His favorite sports are basketball and baseball, which he has played his entire life. Coach Chris’ passion and love for kids shine through at every class he coaches. He has been the sole owner of 5 Star since 2012 and his commitment and drive to continue teaching our children on and off the field is only getting stronger.

“Chris and his team of experienced coaches are great role models for the children they work with. My son has been a part of their baseball program for the past two years and loves it!”

“My two children have never had a better experience! They not only had fun, but I feel my kids will be more confident when school sports start. I highly recommend 5 Star Sport’s camps!”

Steven Burswin

Chris was able to get my child into the basketball program on the day the program started! He was very accommodating and made my son’s winter!
