Pay to Participate

Pay to participate contributions are used for the upkeep of athletic facilities, equipment, uniform purchases, and coaches salaries.

Exceptions and PTP Fee Caps:

  • Any student-athlete that qualifies for the Free & Reduced Lunch program will not be assessed a PTP Fee.
  • A $500 Family Cap will be in place for any family where multiple children participate in athletics at the High School. This does not include children that play at the High School and Middle School during the given school year.

Refunds for PTP Fees will only be granted retroactively to a student-athlete that suffers a season-ending injury. Student-athletes that either quit the team, or are removed from the team for eligibility or disciplinary purposes will not be refunded.

District Intramural Sports

(Held during the school day, traditionally during the lunch period or after school)

The term “intramural” simply means “within the walls.” Participation is always under the supervision and guidance of an intramural staff member and events are age-appropriate. Students may participate in a variety of activities including kickball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and other sports. The intramural program is all-inclusive and open to every student. In addition to further developing a sense of community within the school, the intramural programs provide students an opportunity to further practice and internalize the skills, attitudes, and knowledge acquired in their physical education class.

For more information, contact your individual school’s athletic office or the respective coach/staff adviser.
