 Athletics

​Central athletics are open to all students with academic eligibility. The dedicated, experienced coaching staff teaches Centurions the importance of teamwork, respect for the games, and how to develop their athletic abilities on and off the playing field.

The athletic program at Greensburg Central works in conjunction with all other aspects of the school. It has been developed as an extension of the education achieved in the classroom setting. It offers a wide range of activities that are greater in number than most institutions comparable in size to Greensburg Central.

Students at Greensburg Central may select from 22 interscholastic varsity sports that compete in the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA). Because of this affiliation, and the shared philosophy of all member schools, varsity athletics are highly competitive in nature; varsity teams must, therefore, be prepared thoroughly and extensively. These students are offered educational opportunities that are provided in no other setting, and skills are developed so that teams will have opportunities to win.

 Athletic Trainer

Athletics.jpgMission Statement
Greensburg Central Catholic, in conjunction with Excela Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, provides comprehensive care for all of its student athletes. This care includes one licensed athletic trainer to be present at Greensburg Central Catholic for all practices and home events as designated by the contract.

Licensed athletic trainers are health care professionals who work under the direction of physicians to optimize the activity and participation of clients and patients. The scope of athletic training includes: prevention, assessment, and intervention of emergency; and acute and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations and disabilities. The athletic trainer may provide pre-practice taping and wrapping, evaluation and rehabilitation of injuries, on-field/court coverage and first aid, and post-practice assessments.

At Greensburg Central Catholic, we make every attempt to provide the finest health care to all student athletes. To aid in this care, parents are encouraged to communicate directly with a coach or the athletic trainer if an athlete sustains an injury. This direct communication can only benefit in the student athlete's recovery from an injury. Injuries are common with participation in athletics. With proper communication, and timely invention, most injuries can be managed within the athletic training room. If the management of an injury requires a more comprehensive referral, we can aid the student athlete/family through the process.
