Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it. Coach Chris Perin possesses over 10 years of coaching experience and a proven record of championship success. Was named 10U Offensive Coordinator after spending the 2018 season as CE Stars co-offensive coordinator. 

During his debut season, he focused on creating a learning environment with clear expectations for all parties involved to ensure shared accountability across the board. In doing so, this led to the organization’s 1st National Championship at the 10U division.

Perin brings a unique perspective to his new role as Regional Youth Director for CE Stars. As he enters his 2nd full season as Offensive Coordinator, Perin has leveraged his love for football and his purpose of cultivating each player on the roster. Winning championships for athletes is always the focal point, but Perin’s intentional plan to develop and expose players to themselves is a direct reflection of the environment created for them to thrive in which has ultimately set them apart. With a “Lead & Dominate” motto along with simulated game-like practices that focus on technique, tempo, and togetherness. Having 8 returning National Champs will help expedite the buy-in process of Perin’s system for onboarding players, and the results again should be hard to ignore. He and his wife, LaBron, have four children, Bryce, Grace, Graham, and Prosper. Who all look forward to another successful season while creating memories traveling across the country.
