DC State Championship

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 14 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.

Meet Our Coaches

Coach Abell, Volleyball

 “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."

  • 1 Athletic Center

This award-winning sports complex includes classrooms, a weight and aerobics room, a training room, visiting- and home-team locker rooms, a student lounge, and a gym with seating for 500.

All of our teams practice on campus, with the exception of:

  • Crew - practices nearby on the Potomac River

Meet the Cubs: Ferdinand & Nicodemus

Visitation is unique: instead of having just ONE mascot, we have TWO: the White Team Bear and the Gold Team Tiger! Together, we are the Cubs!

Visi Club Sports


Visitation Rugby Club was founded in 2017 to introduce an international, Olympic sport for young women to play in a fun and competitive environment. The club is a no-cut, fun option for girls to pursue during the spring season. No prior experience is necessary. Rugby is a combination of skills developed in many sports such as basketball and soccer. We have a top-level coaching staff focusing on skill work and safety - three of Visi's coaches have played for the USA women’s rugby team, including the captain of the 2021 USA team!
