At Marianapolis, students can choose between 13 varsity teams and 19 other athletic programs, honing skills and building strength through daily afternoon practice. Everyone at Marianapolis Prep is required to participate in two sports seasons each year. Participation in either competitive teams or non-competitive athletic programming helps to fulfill this requirement.
New or novice athletes compete on junior varsity and/or thirds teams. Experienced athletes are challenged at the varisty level by a more demanding practice and game schedule. Tryouts are held at the beginning of each season; placement within programs is determined by the activity coaches and the Athletic Director.
