Welcome to Traverse City Central High School Athletics

 

We are extremely proud of the Trojan spirit, tradition and history here at Traverse City Central High School.  We believe that athletic challenges, in concert with academic pursuits, help students develop life skills that will serve them well as adults.

 

Why interscholastic athletics?  The answer is simple...it assists the education process in instilling and developing life skills necessary for future success.
