2022-23 Athletics Preview & Important Dates

A message from Director of Competitive Activities, Elisa Ryan Manny:

Please read for important information for the fall season including sports registration, eligibility, captains practices and important dates. 

For participation in all Upper School Sports:

1. Athletic Registration

  • Sports registration is completed as part of registration process each school year and includes MSHSL and Visitation consent forms.
  • For questions, please contact Elisa Manny in Athletics or Sarah Aamodt in Enrollment.

2. Health Forms - Sports Qualifying Physical

  • Upper School-level student-athletes need a current sports qualifying physical (current within three years). New students and students (entering grades K, 7 and 9) need a new sports qualifying physical on file with school nurse, JoAnne Geiser, as well as an Action Plan for any severe allergies or health conditions before they are eligible to participate. See the Health Office website for more information regarding specific needs for allergies and other health conditions.
  • Health clearance from the School Nurse is required in order to be eligible for athletic participation
  • Questions? Please contact Elisa Manny or the school nurse, JoAnne Geiser.

3. ImPACT Concussion Screening

  • Visitation's Twin Cities Orthopedic Certified Athletic Trainer, Emily Tindal, will send each student-athlete who needs to complete an ImPACT Concussions Screening an email during the first week in August with her individual code to complete the screening at home. An ImPACT screening does not prevent a concussion, so student-athletes will not be withheld from opening practices if it is not yet completed. However, a completed screening is mandatory to compete in the first competition. 
  • Screenings are required for the following high-impact sports: Soccer, Swim/Dive, Volleyball, Alpine, Basketball, Hockey, Lacrosse, Softball and Track & Field Pole Vault. Screening is available for student-athletes in remaining sports upon request.
  • Please contact Emily Tindal with any questions.

4. Athletics Check-In
Athletics Check-In is a quick stop for student-athletes to pick up their eligibility wristband and "check-in" to their official fall roster. All 9th - 12th graders who plan to participate in a fall sport need to check in. Those 7th and 8th graders who plan to try out for an Upper School team also need to check in. Middle School student-athletes who plan to play a Middle School sport do not need to check in. Eligibility wristbands are issued when a student-athlete is registered and has a sports qualifying physical on file with the school nurse. Wristbands need to be worn for the first week of fall sports to indicate that a student-athlete is cleared to participate.
