Sports Participation Fee Eliminated

May 20, 2022

Great news for families of students who play sports at West Valley's schools! Thanks to the recently passed levy, WVSD is now able to remove the fee for participating in athletics, better known as ‘Pay to Play.’

The District truly believes activities are part of the educational experience, and families should not be burdened financially for participating in these activities. “Previously, this fee was $75 per student, per sport, and some of the fees we believe kept students from turning out and enjoying or trying new things. We don’t want that to be the case any longer, and we think this will give students the ability to discover their passion without financial barriers,” says Assistant Superintendent of Business Operations, Joe Connolly.

Now, all students have greater access and opportunity to take part in after-school activities in West Valley. The new change will go into effect starting in the fall of the 2022/23 school year.
