Head of School Rene Gavic offers a message of gratitude and hope this Thanksgiving.
What You Need to Know for the Start of Fall Sports!
There is no in-person check in this year. All families with students registered to play a sport received an email from the Athletic Department either confirming that they are cleared or informing them of what they need to provide to the School Nurse in order to receive clearance.
1) Athletic Registration
- Athletic registration is built into the school registration form. If you have any issues with school registration, then please contact Mirella Miller.
2) Health Forms
- All Upper School-level student-athletes need a current sports qualifying physical and an Action Plan for any severe allergies or health conditions before they are eligible to participate.
*2020-21 UPDATE: The MSHSL is allowing physicals that expire anytime from March 12, 2020 through the end of the 2020-21 school year to be eligible through the 2020-21 school year. All student-athletes must still complete the annual health history questionnaire that is included in registration (see above #1). All physicals still need to be on file and approved by the School Nurse.
3) Concussion Screening
- Student-athletes in need of an updated concussion screening received an email from our TCO Athletic Trainer, Emily Tindal, with directions on how to complete the screening at home on your school laptop. A current screening is not required to begin on August 17. A concussion screening does not prevent a concussion.
In compliance with Governor Walz's Emergency Order 20-99, all organized youth sports are on pause from midnight Friday, November 20, until midnight Friday, December 18. This applies to all Visitation winter sports, as well as volleyball.
Governor Walz is expected to announce changes to Fall and Winter sports in a press conference tonight at 6 p.m. We will communicate updates as they become available.
Two Visitation Seniors have signed on to compete at the NCAA Division I level next year. Go Blazers!
Meet the new volleyball coach, Colleen Modde!
