High School Athletic Participation Fees

For those students participating in high school athletics:

Due to the reduction in the district athletic budget, it has become necessary to charge a participation fee of $120 per athlete, per sport for those students wishing to participate in high school athletics.  This fee allows us to maintain the scope of programs we provide, allowing students to have a wide variety of opportunities for involvement in activities beyond the school day.  Payment of the fee is required for participation and a schedule for when the fees are due is listed below.  Also be reminded that students must have a current physical form and a gold emergency card on file prior to participating in any practice/tryout.

IMPORTANT: Please be aware as well that the fee does not guarantee playing time, only the opportunity to be on the team if selected
