Tryouts

Fall Sports Information

Any student interested in trying out for a sport needs to create an account on PRIVIT.   If you have a new physical for 2021, you can upload it to your PRIVIT account. 

Login to PRIVIT

Fall Tryouts begin August 9.  More information will be sent out to student athletes closer to August 9, when we can confirm the local government guidelines for sports participation.  On August 9th all sports tryout participants must check in at Cor Jesu in the Commons before going to the tryout. This includes sports that participate off-campus except golf.    Tryouts are a minimum of 3 days and are typically completed by Friday of the first week.  After tryouts are complete, practices continue Mondays – Fridays and some weekend days until the season is complete.  Athletes for all sports teams are expected to be at all practices and contests for the season.  Any student athlete that makes a Cor Jesu team is required to watch the on-line rules meeting with their parents each year.  This will be done after tryouts are complete. Athletes will receive a pledge card after they have watched the rules meeting.  The signed pledge card needs to be returned to the Athletic Office.  The $80 participation fee will be collected on-line this year through your SMART Tuition account.  

If you are cut from a sport and are interested in another sport, Cross Country and Softball may be an option, but you need to contact the Athletic Department immediately so that you can continue to accumulate the 14 practices required before competition. 

If you have any questions about a specific sport tryout, please contact the head coach or the Athletic Director, Liz Biedenstein, at lbiedenstein@corjesu.org.

Please make sure you have a water bottle with you each day. 

Cross Country

Email Coach Katie (khelbig@corjesu.org) for a summer training packet.

The Cor Jesu Cross Country team will begin practicing on Monday, August 9 and as XC is a MSHSAA sanctioned high school sport, a serious commitment is required. Although cuts are not made based on speed/ability or race performance results, retention on the team will be based on attitude, sportsmanship, effort, and reliability.

  • Make sure you’re well hydrated when you come to practice
  • Bring a water bottle
  • Wear a watch to keep track of your time
  • Returning runners bring their summer running logs the first day

Practice will be held 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. the first week.
