Athletic Participation Fee

Athletic Participation

The Tipp City Exempted Village Schools has implemented an “Athletic Fee” for the purpose of reducing the cost to the District General Fund for operating our Athletic Programs. These costs include, but are not limited to transportation and coaching salaries.

  1. Parents and students are advised that payment of fees does not insure playing time.
  2. Fees are $100 for High School (9-12) Athletics and $75 for Middle School (7-8) Athletics.
  3. Any student who believes they qualify for a fee waiver due to financial need must fill out an application for consideration.  Waiver applications can be found at the Board Office or on the district website.
  4. Athletic Fees are due August 15th (or before the first contest in the sport) for fall, November 15th for Winter and March 15th for Spring.  Fees can be paid at the seasonal orientation meeting, in the HS Athletic Office (HS only), in the MS Main Office (MS only), or can be handed to your sport coach.  Please bring this Invoice & Receipt with you when making your fee payment.
  5. Students that have not paid the athletic participation fee by the assigned date will be unable to participate until such fee is paid.  This includes the payment of all of the student’s general school fees.
  6. An INDIVIDUAL cap of $225 is in place.  No individual student will pay more than a combined total of $225 for “Participation Fees”. This $225 cap incorporates fees for athletics, band, choir and clubs.  The participant is responsible for informing the coach or director when this cap has been reached.  The burden of proof lies with the athlete in proving that the cap has been met.
  7. A FAMILY cap of $300 is in place.  No family of Tippecanoe athletes will pay more than a combined total of $300 for “Participation Fees”. This $300 cap incorporates fees for athletics, band, choir and clubs.  The participant is responsible for informing the coach or director when this cap has been reached.  The burden of proof lies with the athlete in proving that the cap has been met.
