She has experience coaching AAU teams at 5th through 6th grade level. She served as the assistant coach on the Arlington Hurricanes team during the 2006 and 2007 AAU season.

Coach Chris basketball life started many years ago first as a player for CYO in Queens, NY.  She went on to play at Stella Maris HS, Rockaway Beach and played as a freshman for Molloy College NY. Coach Chris is passionate that basketball provides you with critical skills that are used throughout one’s lifetime. Strategic Decision Making, Discipline, Critical Thinking, Leadership and Team Work are further developed and recognized by players when playing the game.

Coach Chris is registered nurse and works for the MITRE Corporation supporting the Department of Defense Military System, The Veteran’s Health Administration, Department of Health and Human Services, and other federal healthcare agencies.  Coach Chris is married with 3 children.  Her oldest daughter Elizabeth was a point guard on the varsity basketball team.

Coach Chris is committed to teaching the fundamentals and proper mechanics of the game. She also believes that as much concentration must be paid to defense as offense, as defense wins games!  Her priority is to instill the principle that “hard physical work can be a lot of fun” and is looking forward to a successful and productive season.  Coach Shamloo brings 100% to the team and the season and expects the same of her players.
