Contra Costa Christian Schools is committed to quality coaching from a Christian perspective that grounds athletes in strong fundamentals of their respective sports while emphasizing integrity and sportsmanship. The primary aim of the Athletic Program at Contra Costa Christian High School is the spiritual and social development of the student athlete. Through participation in athletics we hope to develop in our student-athletes positive qualities of responsibility, cooperation, respect, commitment, leadership and discipline.
Contra Costa Christian High School competes regularly with Division 5 and Division 6 schools of comparable size. CCCS fields competitive teams with these other schools, in part due to the high quality of Christian coaches on staff. With only one team selected in each league, CCCS was awarded the Bay Counties League Sportsmanship Award in the 2008-09 and 2012-13 school years. The girls varsity basketball team won the 2015-16 BCL League Championship.
In the last few years, we have seen the following teams successfully attain playoff berths in NCS:
With a great sense of school pride and a strong commitment by the athletic staff, it makes it a great time to be a part of Contra Costa Christian Athletics!

My love for soccer began at the age of 10 when I played for AYSO. I went on to play for MDSL, Diablo FC, and De La Salle High School. The strong connections I formed with my teammates and coaches as a player are unforgettable. I carried the values I learned as a player into my work as a coach for De La Salle, Diablo FC & San Ramon FC. Practicing and training are a part of my daily life, and I’m excited to share the skills and values I have acquired over the years as the head coach of the men’s varsity soccer team.
I started running cross country and track in high school (Newark-Memorial in Fremont) and have continued running many races from 5Ks to marathons.
I also ran for local running clubs including Tamalpa and West Valley Track Club.
I have been working in the biotech/Pharmaceutical industry as an account manager for the last 30 years.
My love and passion for the last 25 years has been coaching cross country and track at the high school level. What I enjoy most about coaching is motivating
student athletes, not only to be runners, but to be the best person they can be!
Over the last 25 years, I've been blessed to send multiple runners to D1 NCAA programs. I am so excited to be a part of CCCS and help with guiding student athletes to be the best that they can be.
