Visitation offers one of the strongest athletic programs in the area. Our student-athletes win awards and recognition, but also take away powerful lessons and life skills from their time in the playing arena.

We offer Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity level competition, as well as no-cut sports like Cross Country and Track, so there's a home for every athlete. Our teams are consistently competitive across the board, earning banners and winning championships. Our student-athletes earn recognition as All-League and Washington Post All-Met athletes and even national honors, while many continue their careers at the collegiate level.

The strength of our program goes far beyond awards and banners, however. Our student-athletes build pride and confidence through practice and hard work. They learn the rewards of teamwork, good sportsmanship, patience, and perseverance.

Coaches

Over the course of her athletic career, a Visi girl will learn from coaches who bring a full range of athletic experiences.

We have 50 coaches across all our teams, and their diverse backgrounds include coaching at the high school or club level and competing at the collegiate level.

A number of Visitation teachers continue their involvement beyond the academic day by coaching, and a large number of alumnae have returned to pass on their experience and knowledge to the current students who follow in their footsteps.
