“Visi Athletics is defined by the distinguished women who compete for our programs each season. The opportunity to compete at a high level with these young women for championships while helping them grow in general is what drew me to Visitation in the first place. It is truly a special environment."
While many know Visitation as one of the strongest athletic programs in the area, we take greater pride in the values our players bring to and learn on the field and the wellness practices students hone during their time here.
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, with many continuing their careers at the collegiate level.
Visitation has won the Lewis Cup for overall athletic excellence 13 times - more than any other school in the Independent School League.
The strength of our program goes far beyond awards and banners. Our student-athletes build pride and confidence through practice and hard work. They learn the rewards of teamwork, good sportsmanship, patience, and perseverance.
"Working with the Georgetown Visitation athlete for the past 20ish years they never fail to impress me with their commitment to doing not only their best, but willing to stretch themselves just that little bit more to be better than the day before."
"I have had the privilege to coach at Georgetown Visitation for 27 years. Visitation is a special place. I have had the opportunity to coach so many wonderful girls throughout the years who excel in the classroom and on the basketball court."
"What makes the athletic program here special is that you have students who want to be just as successful in the classroom as they are in their athletic endeavors."
