Centre competes in 23 intercollegiate sports (11 for men, 12 for women), with 40 percent of the student body participating in one or more team sport.

The College also offers 15 intramural sports in which 80 percent of our students participate. By supporting athletics and intramurals alike, the Praying Colonels Fund is a critical factor in providing our student-athletes a quality Centre Experience.

Praying Colonels Fund members can take pride in knowing they are directly impacting the lives of the nearly 600 young men and women who put on a Centre uniform each year. At Centre, athletics and recreation operates under the vision that a liberal arts education should seek to enhance the mind and body. We are also imparting invaluable life lessons about teamwork, servant leadership, the value of hard work, and being a part of something bigger.

The Praying Colonels Fund has enhanced facilities, allowed for the addition of video web streaming of athletic events, and provided funding for equipment upgrades, uniforms and travel.
