Lightridge High School Athletics
Dear Parents of High School Athletes,
For the 2022-2023 school year, Loudoun County Public Schools will require that each student pay a non-refundable athletic fee of $75 for each sport in which he or she is a confirmed member. Athletes who try out and become official team members will be required to pay the athletic fee prior to the first official contest 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 online by credit card through the Loudoun County Public Schools payment portal 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 Friday, February 24th.
If you have any questions, please contact the high school your son/daughter attends.
