What are Participation Fees?
The Lenape Regional High School District has adopted a policy of assessing a $200.00 per student yearly fee for any student who participates in at least one athletic or extracurricular activity that requires a Board of Education paid coach or advisor. The fee is a one-time charge, and will allow a student to participate in an unlimited number of sports, activities, and clubs throughout the school year. In addition, each student must submit the Athletic and Extracurricular Activity Participation Fee payment prior to the participation (including tryouts) in the activity. The fee is valid for that school year only.
How do I pay the participation fee?
Payments are accepted either via our online E-funds system (preferred,) or by personal check/money order. The current participation fee cost is $200 per student, with a maximum family cap of $400. Please follow the instructions below to take advantage of the $400 family cap.

Students who voluntarily drop out of an activity will forfeit their fee.
