Participation Fees for Middle School Athletics
Each middle school student participating in athletics will be required to pay a $110.00 one-time fee with a family cap of $200.00 at SJMS. This will be assessed for the first time of participation per school year. Students who receive free and reduced lunch will pay a $25.00 one-time fee with a family cap of $50.00.
Each middle school student participating in the spring musical will be required to pay a one-time fee of $50.00. If the student has paid an athletic participation fee during the current school year, the $50.00 fee will be waived.
The “pay to participate” athletic fee must be paid on or before the first day of practice in sports that do not have a “cut” process. All sports with a “cut” process will expect payment of the fee once the teams have been established prior to the first competition. All fees will be collected by the Athletic Director’s office with checks made payable to St. Johns Public Schools.
No student will be ineligible to participate in athletic or musical programs solely due to the inability to pay the registration fee. Parents may make application for the fee waiver or an alternative form of payment by contacting the Athletic Office directly. Fee waiver information and alternative payment arrangements shall be confidential in nature.
