Come Visit Us

Official visits

By NCAA rule, USJ can finance one official visit for an interested student-athlete, which includes meals, a small entertainment allowance, and overnight accommodations. Coach Straker will work with you to schedule a campus tour and meet with admissions on your visit. Recruits often attend a class with a present member of the team on their visit. An official visit may not take place until the prospective student-athlete begins their senior year of high school.

Unofficial visits

A prospective student-athlete may visit campus at her own expense an unlimited number of times and does not need to wait until their senior year. Coaches, members of the admissions department and all school staff are allowed to meet with you as many times as needed on these visits.


Our Schedule

Come see us compete, either at home or on the road! Let us know when you’re coming and our coaching staff will be happy to visit with you after the meet.



Your Schedule

Send us your team's schedule and we'll let you know when we will be able to come see you compete during your season.
