Teams & Tryouts

Through sports, our students strive for their personal best and learn to succeed by working as a team. Cor Jesu offers the following team sports:






Fall Sports

Cross Country  •  Field Hockey  •  Golf  •  Softball  •  Tennis  •  Volleyball

Fall Sports begin August 7, 2017

Important Notice:

The Metro Women’s Athletic Association that Cor Jesu is a part of has made a collective decision to start tryouts one week later then the July 31, 2017 MSHSAA start date.  The fall sports seasons will begin on August 7.  In order to get the mandatory 14 days of practice in, athletes will be expected to be at all practices from August 7 and on through the rest of the season.   Anticipate that there will be Saturday or Sunday practices as well during pre-season.  Any significant number of days missed after that August 7 start may inhibit a student from participating on any of the fall teams.  If you have any questions contact Liz Biedenstein at

Winter Tryouts


Winter tryouts begin Monday, October 31, 2016.  Participants are expected to be at all scheduled practices from the start of season to the end. If you have not put your name on the list in the athletic office for Basketball or Swim and Dive, please do so as soon as possible.   If we do not have your papers on the first day of tryouts, you are not eligible to practice.  .  If you are participating in Cheer, Basketball or Swim and Dive, and you did not attend the Sports Rules Meeting in August, you and a parent will need to attend the meeting on Tuesday, November 15 in the Little Theater at 5:00 pm.  This time has been changed to get the meeting in before swim practice at 6 pm.  Please arrive early to check in so that we can start the meeting at 5:00.  




Basketball tryouts begin October 31. All participants will practice together on Monday from 3:30-5:30.  Please check in with Mary Kaye and I in the lobby of the gym by 3:15.  The tryout extends through the week and will be split into a 3:30-5:30 Varsity practice and a 5:30-7:30 JV tryout.  The coaches will let participants know which practice they should attend.  The tryout is a minimum of three days.  Teams will be announced by Friday.
