Intent registration for basketball will close on Friday, October 6. We register intent to play JV (5th and 6th grade) and Varsity (7th And 8th grade) boys and girls basketball from September 20 through October 6. This intent registration period helps us plan for the upcoming season. By determining how many athletes are interested in playing basketball, we can determine the number of teams we will have, how many coaches and uniforms etc we need. If your son or daughter is interested in playing Visitation basketball, please log into your account on Sports Illustrated Play at www.visitstionbvm.siplay.com<http://www.visitstionbvm.siplay.com> and register their intent to play. The evaluation process will occur in early November. You must register your intent in order to participate in the evaluation process.

Registration for our sports teams & programs are held before each season. Registration is the responsibility of the parents and children. We have tried to make this as easy as possible. Because of the volume of participants we must insist that you register in the time allocated so that we can have enough time to prepare the rosters for each team in each season. We advertise the dates on our website, this registration page, the Church bulletin, the school's One Call Now email, PREP's email and our own CYO email blasts. Registration is only conducted online via our website. The system will allow for registration during the advertised period only. You may pay for your registration with most major credit cards online. Registration typically takes place over a 2-3 week period.
For questions contact the Registrar: Cheryll Fisher @ email@example.com
