Fall Sports

Canisius offers six highly competitive athletic programs in the fall season with opportunities in football, soccer, volleyball, golf, cross country and crew. If you have questions, please contact the coaches listed on the team pages.

In order to tryout for teams, you must have an up-to-date physical on file, and register on Form ReLeaf.

Information for Freshman Student-Athletes

“Musts” before you can take the field:

1. You must have an up-to-date physical on file with the school.

2. Student-athletes must be registered with Form Releaf. It is a secure platform with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our programs and helps us be more administratively efficient. This system eliminates the paperwork our student-athletes were previously required to turn in.

BEGIN YOUR ONLINE REGISTRATION using this link to Form ReLeaf:

3. Contact the school nurse, Mrs. Keating at keating@canisiushigh.org if you have any questions.
