About Fighting Irish Athletics

Central Catholic High School offers a total of 24 varsity sports for males and females. The school nickname is the Fighting Irish with school colors of Scarlet & Gray. Fighting Irish athletes have been battling it out on the fields and courts since 1920. Playing for Irish pride and rooting for our teams is a huge part of the spirit and tradition of Central Catholic High School.

The CCHS athletic philosophy has always been one of participation and opportunity. As a result, Central Catholic encourages students to participate in as many different sports as they like. Our coaching staff is encouraged to work together with this philosophy in mind – even with student athletes playing more than one sport in the same season.

Forms that must be completed by all CCHS Athletes
