Centerville High School Athletics

The Centerville Athletic Department and Business Department are partnering together to manage a capital fundraising campaign to raise all the funds needed to build an $9.36 million dollar facility that will change the landscape of Centerville Athletics for years to come. The construction of this multi-sport athletic facility will have a significant impact on the students, coaches, and community of Centerville. It will provide the necessary facilities to train and develop student-athletes and help the school to continue its legacy of excellence in athletics.
