Drink plenty of fluids before, during and after tryouts each day. Each athlete should bring her own water bottle filled everyday. If you are not feeling well during the course of a work-out, or you are injured please notify one of the coaches and athletic trainer immediately. Your health and safety are extremely important to the Maryvale Athletic Staff.


ImPACT Concussion testing

As stated in the concussion information packet, students that plan on participating in athletics here at Maryvale must have a current "ImPACT" concussion baseline test on file. These baseline tests are relevant for 2 years – students who took them last year will NOT need to take it again for this upcoming school year. All incoming 9th graders and any new Upper School students who are trying out for a fall sport will need to complete the ImPACT concussion baseline. They will not be able to play this fall if it is not completed.

Testing is available at 1:30 p.m. in the Castle Mac Lab on the following days:

  • Monday, August 15 this session is FULL!
  • Tuesday, August 16
  • Wednesday, August 17

Each day is capped at 25 registrants.
