Dads' Club

Welcome to the Dads' Club

In the parking lot, on the sidelines, helping wherever they can...the Dads' Club makes Catholic Central a better place. 

Open to all current and alumni dads, please see our calendar for our meeting schedule and upcoming  events. 

Join our Detroit Catholic Central Dads' Club Facebook group to continue the conversation and stay up-to-date!


Catholic Central Dads,

On behalf of the Catholic Central Dads’ Club welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. For our new families joining our Shamrock Community, we look forward to meeting you. CC is more than an academic institution; it is a family of loving people who strive to provide our young men with an outstanding high school experience.

This is our seventh consecutive year at CC with our second son in the building now, and I offer this advice, get involved. The CC experience is not just for your child, it includes you. No matter if your title is dad, stepdad, grandfather, guardian you are a member of CCDC. This year we have a grandfather on our board, and I am absolutely thrilled to have his support. CCDC’s mission is to foster community engagement and fellowship. And we encourage all of you to be a part of this!

Last week Friday we kicked off the CCDC year with Varsity Football Coach, Justin Cessante '99, and Athletic Director,  Aaron Babicz '93, sharing their passion for their Alma Mater. It was a great night of fellowship & conversation. On Thursday August 24th, CC Varsity will host Dearborn High in a playoff rematch from last fall. On September 11th, we will host our annual Corn Hole Event in the north parking lot which is always a blast. And to finish off September, we have Boys Bowl, CC vs Brother Rice, the best Michigan High School Rivalry.

Calendar of events will be on the landing page under the parents tab. Please follow us on our Facebook page Detroit Catholic Central Dads’ Club.

We also have upcoming volunteer opportunities and encourage your involvement:  Parking Lot Traffic Control for the August 18th dance, Football Parking/Merchandise Sales & 50/50 sales. To run all these events, it takes a village. So please consider taking on a shift or two, promise you will enjoy it. Volunteer sign-ups will be on our biweekly Parent Newsletter sent on Thursdays.

Lastly, we are excited to announce the “CCDC Swag Shop”.  The link is on the CCDC landing page. Items for dad are available online and shipped right to your doorstep. So, get your merch and see you at a future event!!

If you have interest in volunteering or have a question, please email me at

Another Great Day to be a Shamrock Dad, God Bless our Shamrocks!
