Dear CMI Sports Community,
My name is Chris Pearson, the new Athletic Director, Head Football Coach and PE teacher. I am excited to be a part of the CMI community as we embark upon new territory in providing our student-athletes a quality sports program filled with an enthusiastic coaching staff, spirited faculty and staff along with our supportive families. I've been involved in coaching going all the way back when I attended high school as a volunteer in youth sports. Since then I have coached a variety of sports from football to girls basketball to baseball from youth to college.
As an Athletic Director, I enjoy the camaraderie of working alongside our coaching staff and providing our teams the support to compete at the highest level. Our high school teams participate in the South Valley division governed by the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) while our middle school sports compete in a local league. Our team philosophy relies on a "pick me up" attitude. In essence, we believe sports are a true reflection in life in how we respond to adversities and challenges. Despite the outcome of the scoreboard, our goals as coaches and educators is to prepare our students to go through these challenges and build character in every measure.
