Forever Dutch Renovation

It’s not just the trophies and titles that make Central athletics special. It’s the growth, relationships and life lessons. The spectacular $12-million P.H. Kuyper Gymnasium expansion enhances those opportunities.


But the game's not over...


The building is incomplete without the critical work necessary to give the original 50-year-old structure an urgently needed transformation into a championship 21st-century facility.


Funding is still needed as the starting date nears for a sweeping $3-million refresh of the building’s lower level, including:

  • State-of-the-art women’s varsity locker room with team room

  • Renovations for student recreational locker rooms

  • Major upgrades to the athletic training room


An additional $3 million is needed for the upper level for:

  • Recruiting suites

  • Conference/film rooms

  • Sikkink-Dykstra Welcome Center

  • Football coaches’ suite

  • New coaches’ offices
