List of 4 items.

  • Facilities

    The Constance and Samuel Pistorio Sports Complex and the new Artificial Turf field are the centerpiece of the Mount de Sales Academy athletic facilities.

    The Sports Complex is home to our Basketball and Volleyball teams. It also houses our physical education classes, Cheerleading squad, as well as a variety of summer sports camps. The Sports Complex includes a weight room, Athletic Trainers Room, offices for coaches and teachers, locker rooms and a classroom.

    Our turf field is the home to our Field Hockey, Soccer, Lacrosse, and Softball teams. The teams play and practice on the on-campus field that is located prominently in front of the campus.

    Mount de Sales’ teams also enjoy partnerships with a variety of area schools and community recreation sites for off-campus home games. Benefiting are Cross Country, Tennis, Swimming and Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field.
  • Resources

    Those involved with interscholastic athletics enjoy the full support of the MDSA administration and student body.

    Mount de Sales Academy sees athletics as a complement to the overall educational process and important to the promotion of school spirit and development of school pride.

    Approximatley two-thirds of our students annually tryout for at least one Varsity or JV squad place on one of the thirteen teams coached by our experience coaching staff.

    Nearly every varsity sport’s head coach has five or more years of experience at Mount de Sales alone to share with our athletes.  The goal of each coach is to develop athletes individual and team skills with the goal of competitive success while emphasizing fair play and sportsmanship.

    Supporting the athletes and coaches is the Athletic Director’s office, which handles the everyday administrative and seasonal scheduling of activities related to all of our teams.

    A Certified Athletic Trainer is provided through Mount de Sales Academy for daily on campus consultation, first responder injury evaluation, game coverage and the rehabilitation of injuries.
  • Concussion & Head Injury Policy

    All student athletes will be pre-concussion baseline tested by the MDSA athletic trainer before being allowed to participate in sports.

    Mount de Sales Academy will implement the computerized ImPACT program, or similarly recognized diagnostic tool. Post-concussion student athletes are retested and the scores are compared to baseline to help determine athlete readiness to return to play.

    If a student athlete sustains a concussion while currently participating in a Mount de Sales athletics program, she will be removed from play and evaluated on site by the attending athletic trainer. The student athlete will then be referred to her physician for further evaluation. The athletic director will also be notified.

    After being diagnosed with a significant concussion the Concussion Committee team will determine how best to modify the student athlete’s academic schedule to accommodate the required period of total cognitive rest the brain needs to heal properly.

    A 1st post-concussion ImPACT test will be administered by the MDSA athletic trainer 1-3 days after the initial injury or upon the student athlete’s return to school. These results will be emailed to a neuropsychologist selected by MDSA for interpretation.

    A reevaluation with the student athlete’s physician will also be required before return to play decisions will be considered.

    The student athlete is eligible to begin the gradual return-to-play progression when she has 1) received clearance from her physician, 2) has a post-concussion ImPACT test which has returned to baseline status, 3) has been cleared by the MDSA athletic trainer, 4) has been cleared by guidance that all of her make-up work is complete and 5) The student is no longer receiving academic accommodations.

    In order to protect the well-being of each student athlete, MDSA reserves the right to determine the level of participation for all student athletes who have sustained a concussion. Suffering a single severe concussion or multiple concussions may lead to the prohibition from participation in contact sports or possibly any sport at Mount de Sales Academy.
