Participation in Central Christian's athletic program is a unique experience that prepares Christian men and women for a life of meaningful work and service.

“Having a place where they experience a community centered around Jesus that involves their favorite sport is invaluable to us as parents.”  -Chip Coleman, father of Silas (Class of 2025), Ezra (Class of 2027), and Jesse (Class of 2029)

Athletics

Central Christian athletics strives to exemplify Jesus Christ and to provide a balanced and competitive athletic program. Central believes that athletics provide an outlet for individual development.  The process is just as important as the performance and the student athlete, as part of the team, is more important than the program.

CCS is a member of the OHSAA (Ohio High School Athletic Association) for our High School teams and completes in MBC (Mid-Buckeye Conference) for both Middle School and High School teams. 

CCS competes against both Private and Public schools in Division 1 – Division 4.

Athletic Philosophy

Participation in Central Christian's athletic program is a unique experience that prepares Christian men and women for a life of meaningful work and service. The athletic experience provides a dynamic growth process for developing a desire to excel, learning discipline, teamwork and leadership, creating godly character traits and establishing mutual respect for others. Preparation for life is more important to the coaches and the athletic administration than win-loss records and championships. Above all, we desire to honor God in everything we do within the athletic program.

The CCS athletic program strives to exemplify Jesus Christ and to provide a balanced and competitive program.

CCS believes that:
• Athletics are a means to individual development
• The process is as important as the performance
• The student athlete, as part of the team, is more important than the program

Student Reflections

“What I’ve learned from three years of playing varsity soccer in Central’s program, though, is that success for us is more than continued tournament wins; it is a commitment to character development.” - Aaron Miedel, Class of 2025

“By the example of God, we choose to be a part of something greater. Being a part of a team at Central is not only athletics, but sharing one common goal, knowing Christ and to make Him known.” -Angela Miller, Class of 2024

"Even when the majority of the squad isn't as experienced as their competition, they somehow find a way to compete together and exceed their goals. Culture is everything, and Central has one of the best team cultures I have ever seen."  -Bill Lawrence, Head Soccer Coach, Malone University
