The Colonie Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 2019 to recognize graduates, staff/faculty, and community members who have achieved significant accomplishments and will provide current students with positive role models in their own lives. Each spring, the Board of Education Athletics Hall of Fame Committee seeks nominations for induction into the Colonie Central High School Athletics Hall of Fame in the following categories Athlete, Team, Coach, Athletic Contributor and Legacy.
The nominations are reviewed each school year by the Athletics Hall of Fame Selection Committee, which determines the inductees who will be included in the Hall of Fame class in October.
