Fees & Expenses

FEES AND EXPENSES

Certain fees and out-of-pocket expenses are associated with sports participation at Lawrence High.

These fees help cover many things including but not limited to: coaches salaries, equipment, transportation, uniforms, and the Lawrence Public Schools catastrophic insurance premiums for athletes.

PARTICIPATION FEES:

Each athlete must purchase an activity ticket ($25) and pay a participation ($50) or “pay-to-play” fees. The activity ticket is a once per school year fee while the participation fee is accessed per sport.

Participation fees will be billed to the students account once final rosters are submitted and should not be paid in anticipation of earning a spot on a team or roster.

OUT-OF-POCKET EXPENSES:

Each sport may also have out-of-pocket expenses associated specifically with that sport. They may range from $125 to $1500+. Should you need financial assistance please see the head coach for that sport.

ACTIVITY TICKETS:

Activity Tickets are required for all students participating in a KSHSAA sponsored sport or co-curricular activity. Proceeds from activity tickets pay for athletic and activity expenses, including sports officials and co-curricular judges. Any student may purchase an activity ticket regardless of participation in sports or activities.

The cost of an Activity Ticket is $25. Activity tickets are valid only for regular season home sporting events hosted by LHS. They are not valid for tournaments, games held at Allen Field House (KU), or post-season play. This includes games played at our facilities hosted by another school.

The activity ticket cost will be applied to the student’s account when the sport/activity roster is finalized. A billed activity ticket is not considered a paid activity ticket.

An activity ticket must be presented to a ticket taker for free admission to an event where admission is charged. Photographs or images on a phone of the activity ticket will not be accepted at the gate.

Proceeds from activity tickets pay for athletic and activity expenses, including sports officials and co-curricular judges.

Activity tickets may be paid in the LHS Finance Office M-F 8:00am-3:30pm.
