THREE SEASONS OF SPORTS PROGRAMS

Please do not send in payment until you are notified to do so via a Pay to Play (participation fee) form that will be issued to your student athlete by the coach. The Pay-to-Play form is handed to the student once he/she is placed on any WJJMS Interscholastic sports team to be signed by a parent/guardian and should be returned to the office by a specified date noted on the form, determined by the Athletic Director along with the payment. All parents/guardians are required to pay a $180.00 fee for students to participate in any Interscholastic sports team with a maximum of $540.00 per family per school year.
