Fall Sports Information

Any returning student athlete in grades 10-12 interested in trying out for a sport needs to update account on PRIVIT.   Incoming freshmen need to create a new account by July 15. If the student has a PRIVIT account at another school, a different email address must be used to create an account for Cor Jesu. Please make sure that email addresses for both student and parents are entered into PRIVIT. PRIVIT is used to communicate with participants during the season. If you have a new physical for 2022, you can upload it to your PRIVIT account. The 2021 MSHSAA physical on file at Cor Jesu is good for 2 years, unless otherwise noted by the athlete's doctor. 

Login to PRIVIT

Fall Tryouts begin August 8.  Cross Country, Field Hockey, Softball and Volleyball all need to check in at the Student Commons with the Athletic Department staff 30 minutes before going to practice. Golf and Tennis need to go to the site of the tryout. 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 are expected to be at all practices and contests for the season.  Any student athlete that makes a Cor Jesu team is required to attend a rules meeting.  This meeting will be held in the gym for fall student athletes before practice on August 16. A link to the rules review will also be sent to the parents of students participating in fall sports. Athletic  participation fees are collected through your Blackbaud Tuition Management (formerly SMART) account.  

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

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

Cross Country

Email Coach Katie ( for a summer training packet.

The Cor Jesu Cross Country team will begin practicing on Monday, August 8 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
