Centre competes in 23 intercollegiate sports (11 for men, 12 for women), with 40% of the student body participating in one or more team. The College also offers 15 intramural sports in which 80% of our students participate.

The Centre Colonels currently compete in Division III of the NCAA and the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, recognized as one of the top Division III conferences in the country. Centre College Athletics, however, will become a member of the SAA (Southern Athletic Association) beginning Fall 2012.

The Praying Colonels Fund supports the entire athletics program, and gifts to this fund support the notion that a liberal arts education should seek to unilaterally enhance both the mind and the body.

Gifts can also be designated to specific teams, in which case they will be used to support annual projects as requested by the individual head coaches. More information on each current request is listed below. To make a gift to Centre Athletics, click here. You can state on the online form how you wish to direct your gift.
