Tryout Information

Tryouts for fall sports begin the week of Aug. 8, 2022. Students are expected to participate in all tryout dates. 

2022-2023 Athletic Physicals

If your daughter intends to participate on any athletic teams at Marian, a new, yearly physical is required by the NSAA (Nebraska Schools Activities Association). In order to be valid for the 2022-2023 school year, this physical must be dated AFTER May 1, 2022. This is required of ALL students that wish to participate in any athletics for the 2022-2023 school year.

You must complete the parental consent and signatures on the Marian form, even if you have a different form from your physician.

Please download and complete the physical evaluation and consent form here.

Fall Sports Tryouts 2022

Head Coach Information

Cross Country

Monday, Aug. 8 | 6 a.m.-8a.m.
Tuesday, Aug. 9 | 6 a.m.-7:30 a.m.
Wednesday, Aug.10 | 6 a.m.-7:30 a.m.
Thursday, Aug. 11 | 6 a.m.-7:30 a.m.
Friday, Aug. 12 | 6 a.m.-7:30 a.m.

The coaches will meet after practice on Friday. They will choose about 48 runners to be the competitive Marian Cross Country team. The rest of those that try out will be invited to join the Marian Running Club. That way, those runners will be able to run as a group, with any other students that are members of the club. With this new tryout procedure, there will be no need for a time that must be hit to be a
team member.
There will be two or three opportunities to time a 5K run (3.1 miles) during the week of tryouts. The tryout days are considered practices, so attendance is required at all five days of tryouts. If you must be absent from any of the five days, be sure to clear that with Coach Wright ahead of time.
The coaching staff wishes you the best possible tryout and looks forward to working with you during the tryout week! Have a great rest of the summer break and be sure to use some of that time for getting in shape. See you on the 8th :).
-Coach Wright, Coach Golka, Coach Cotton, & Coach Han
