The Central Catholic Basketball program provides an opportunity for student-athletes interested in basketball to improve their skills through inter-scholastic WPIAL and PIAA league competition and playoffs.
Students have the opportunity to compete on our basketball teams at the freshmen level, as well as on the junior varsity and varsity level. Game preparation consists of a rigorous practice schedule and pre-season weight training and conditioning, as well as off-season summer leagues and open-gyms. Competition is provided at the varsity, junior varsity, and freshman levels.
Players representing Central Catholic are expected to be exemplary in their discipline, dedication, and attitude. Hard work and team play are the foundation of the program’s philosophy. The varsity program has achieved great success, making the WPIAL playoffs 12 times in the last 14 years, and the PIAA state playoffs 6 times. The team has averaged 19 wins a season, winning 70% of their games. The Vikings have appeared in numerous local and out-of-state tournaments, including the WPIAL and PIAA state finals.
