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.

Over the course of her athletic career, a Visi girl will learn from coaches who bring a full range of athletic experiences.
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.
Georgetown Visitation is unique. Instead of having just ONE mascot, we have TWO: the White Bear Cub and the Gold Tiger Cub!
Five Visitation students were included in the Washington Post's All-Met recognition this spring, while Varsity Lacrosse coach Katie McMahon was named "Coach of the Year".
Five Cubs will be continuing their athletic careers at the collegiate level. Lizzie Kerrigan '18 will row at Fordham, while four members of the lacrosse team will still need their sticks: Jill Gollob (Yale), Ellie Kiernan (Georgetown), Olivia Naughton (William & Mary), and Clare Richards (Catholic University).
Summer is just around the corner, as spring sports come to a close.
