A message from the principal...

This year looks to be exciting and entertaining.  I have great hope for our Blue Blazers in all sports and music programs.  Our coaches, athletes, marching band, orchestra, and choir member are working very hard.

All of our activities are going to climb higher this year.  We will have an outstanding year in sports and extracurricular activities.  Our music program is poised for outstanding achievement, and our sports are ready to reach new heights as well.  This will be a great year for the Blazer success story.

Blue Blazers, be ready to cheer and support our students in all activities.  Go Big Blue!

A message from the athletic director...

                  Welcome Blazer fans!  I am looking forward to the upcoming school year with great excitement and anticipation. Our athletes and coaches have been working hard preparing for this upcoming season. 

                  The Elkhart Central athletic department strives to help each athlete reach their fullest potential in every area of the student- athlete experience.  I am a firm believer that athletics provide our students with important life lessons such as teamwork, self-discipline, and dedication to hard work.  Our student-athletes will develop academically, socially and mentally by participating in team sports here at Elkhart Central.

                  The success of our athletic program is dependent on the commitment of our athletes, parents, coaches and the whole school community.  This commitment is exemplified by our athletes off season conditioning and competition, the year round efforts of our dedicated coaching staff, support of our administrative and teaching staff at Central, and the tireless hours of volunteer service and support given by our parents and Blazer Athletic Club Members.  I am extremely thankful for your continued support and loyalty to Blazer Athletics.  Please continue to be part of our student’s lives by attending all of our athletic events and promoting good sportsmanship!

                  “EVERY DAY IS GAME DAY!”
