Dear Parents of High School Athletes,
For the 2017-2018 school year, Loudoun County Public Schools will require that each student pay a non-refundable athletic fee of $150 for each sport in which he or she is a confirmed member. Athletes that try out and become an official team member will be required to pay the athletic fee prior to the first official contest in order to be eligible to compete. Fees collected will contribute to the Loudoun County Public Schools budget to assist with coaching salaries, security, field maintenance, transportation costs, and VHSL Membership fees. The assessment of fees has been implemented at the direction of the School Board. There is no relationship between athletic fees to a guarantee of student playing time. Playing time for athletes is the sole decision of the Head Coach and his/her staff.
The fee will be waived for students that qualify for the free or reduced lunch program. The free and reduced lunch form must be completed by the parent to document eligibility, even if the student does not plan to use the form for meals. Athletic fees may be paid on-line by credit card through the Loudoun County Public Schools payment portal system or by cash, check or money order at the school. The payment portal system for the spring sports season will be available for use beginning Monday, February 26, 2018.
If you have any questions, please contact the high school which your son/daughter attends.
