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:
Cross Country • Field Hockey • Golf • Softball • Tennis • Volleyball
Fall Sports begin August 7, 2017
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 email@example.com.
