ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS FOR AVON HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS PARTICIPATION FEE

1. Fee Structure

Parents/Students will fill out a form and pay a fee of $175 for participation on each athletic team. One (1) form per student per sport. The maximum participation fee is two sports per student and/or four sports per family, per school year. The fee applies to all levels of play, including varsity, junior varsity and developmental teams.  If a cap was met, those individual athletes must submit a Pay to Participate Form indicating that that the individual or family cap applies.

 

 

2. Fee Collection

 

Fees will be collected after the teams are selected and before the first official game. No fees will be collected for try-outs. Students selected for team membership will not participate in games or practices until the fee is paid. Pay to Participate Forms will be distributed at Practice and available online. The Fees will be collected in the Avon High School Main Office. (Please see Pay to Participate Form)

 

 

3. Fee Waiver

Families eligible for the free or reduced lunch program or who cannot afford the participation Fees, may request that the participation fee be reduced or waived. They may make their requests privately to the high school principal, the assistant principals, the athletic director, the director of guidance, or the town’s director of social services. All such requests shall be kept confidential.   The Pay to Participate Form must be submitted to the Athletic Office indicating that the individual is qualified for a waiver.

 

4. Refunds

Students who become academically ineligible to participate on an athletic team, are removed from a team for disciplinary reasons, or who quit the team will not be eligible for a refund of a participation fee. Students who are injured or move out of the district will receive a pro-rated refund based on the number of weeks they were on the team.

5. Scenarios - Basically, there is a 2 sport cap on Pay to Participate for each individual.  Crew will over ride other sports on payment.  There is a 4 sport payment per family.  Again, crew payment will over ride payment with other sports.

Please remember that crew has a ($175) payment to the AHS Athletic Dept.  and a ($110) payment to the "Friends of Crew account (Crew Boosters) that is submitted to the coach at the time of registration.
