A message from the principal...

Welcome, Blue Blazer Fans!

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

As parents and fans, we need to show our student athletes support with our attendance at the contests and our enthusiastic vocal support. I believe our student athletes and our music students have learned many important life lessons with their participation in our extra-curricular program. I know they will take these important lessons into the real world. If college or the work world is their next step, our students will be prepared to take on these challenges.

Once a Blazer Always a Blazer!

A message from the athletic director...

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all past, present and future supporters of Elkhart Athletics. We look forward to spending the 2012-2013 academic and athletic year with you.

We ask that all of our athletes and coaches represent our school, our facilities and our programs with the highest regard. We ask that you as fans enjoy the experience of watching and cheering for our student athletes in a positive and enthusiastic manner.

We are the role models as teachers, coaches and parents that our student athletes look up too. Through athletic competition we work to shape the future of our leaders by preparing and teaching them how to work hard and respect fair contest. Learning to be a part of a team is a life- long lesson, one that we at Elkhart Central take pleasure in instructing.

I look forward to seeing you all around the fields, the courts and in the stands. It is a great day to participate... find our Athletic Profile by clicking here.
