Sports Participation Fee

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! The Boosters are responsible for the organization of registration fees, uniforms, equipment, scheduling, etc. for the Saint Mary athletic programs. To offset the ever-rising cost of running each of the athletic programs throughout the year, the Boosters collect a $50 participation fee for each student-athlete wishing to participate a sport affiliated with Saint Mary School. Regardless of the number of sports your child plays, the participation fee is $50/student-athlete. This fee does not apply to children playing U6 soccer.

How do I pay this fee?

Be sure to fill out the form for each child, and then we have two payment options:

1) We offer the option to pay via PayPal (or credit card) on this page and at the end of the electronic registration form.  You will be redirected to PayPal so you can pay via PayPal or credit card.

Pay with PayPal

2) Checks can be made payable to Saint Mary Boosters and return with your child(ren) to school or P.O. Box 42 – Alexandria, KY.

When is this fee due?

September 9, 2018

Will I have to pay $50 for each sport that my child plays?

No.  Regardless of the number of sports your child plays, the cost is a total of $50/student-athlete.

I already paid to register my child for Campbell County Youth (Campbell County North) soccer. Does this fee still apply?

Yes.  The participation fee pays for Saint Mary jerseys, field maintenance, tournament fees, etc.

What grade levels & sports are required to pay this fee?

K-8 Basketball, U8-U14 Soccer, Cross Country, Volleyball, Dance, Cheerleading and Golf (New). This fee does not apply to children playing U6 soccer.

Does this fee affect how much/little my child plays?

Only if the fee is not received.  This is a “participation fee” is not a “pay-to-play” fee.  The participation fee has no bearing on which teams student-athletes are assigned, playing time, or other coaching decisions.

Please take a moment to place a check next to each sport your child will play and your child’s name and grade level below.

How does this compare to other schools?

Other schools do charge a similar fee.  Some charge a flat fee, like we do, and some charge a certain amount per sport.  Here’s a comparison of examples:

Basketball + Cross Country:

  • Saint Mary = $50 total
  • Other schools = $75 total

Soccer + Cheer:

  • Saint Mary = $50 total
  • Other schools = $50 total
