What do I do if I want to participate in a sport at Littleton High School?
All student athletes must turn in an '2012-2013 Athletic Registratin Packet' and the required athletic fee before participating in his or her sport.
Prior to your first official practice, the registration packet must be completely filled out, signed, and returned to the athletic office in the LHS main office complex. The packet includes a request for the following items:
- Medical consent and a current physical
- Parent signature for athletic participation
- Signatures of parent and student that athletic code has been read and is understood.
- Proof of medical insurance. All athletes need medical insurance to participate in any sport. If you do not have current coverage, the school can supply information to obtain seasonal coverage at a moderate price.
What is the athletic fee?
Athletic fees are as follows:
$135 per sport per athlete
$270 max per athlete per year
$405 max per family per year
Refunds are available if the athlete does not make the team or if they drop the sport before the first contest.
Lacrosse and Ice Hockey fees are paid directly to their own Booster Club. The family max and athlete max limits do not apply for Lacrosse and Ice Hockey.
When are the forms and fees due?
Athletic forms and fees are processed by the athletic department in the main office complex. The athletic department will not accept incomplete forms or partial payment. Forms and fees are due before you attend the first official practice for the sport. A multi-part form must be completed for each sport the athlete plays.
Why do I need a physical?
A Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) rule states that an athlete must have a current physical on file in order to participate in extracurricular activities. A valid physical is good for 365 days from the date listed.
If you are unable to get a timely appointment with your regular physician, please call the athletic office for a list of local chiropractors that have been approved throught CHSAA to perform athletic physicals for a nominal fee.
What is academic eligibility?
The student must be enrolled in at least 25 credit hours each semester. Each class is usually worth 5 credit hours. A student may only be failing one 5 credit hour class or a number of classes that add up to 5 credits. An eligibility check is done weekly. If a student athlete is failing more than 5 credits that week, he/she is ineligible for the next week and remains ineligible until he/she is failing no more than 5 credits. If the student athlete fails more than 5 credits in a semester, he/she will be ineligible for the first nine weeks of the following semester. Grades will be re-checked at the end of the nine weeks to determine eligibility for the next nine week period.
Summer school may be used to make up work from the previous semester to gain eligibility.
How much does it cost to get into games?
The Continental League establishes admission prices for league contests.
Students: If you've purchased an activity pass, it won't cost you anything to attend LHS home events. If you have not purchased an activity pass or you are attending an 'away' game, the cost is $3 with a student ID. Once playoff games begin, the CHSAA fee for all games is $5.
Adults: Generally, admission is $5 for league events. Senior citizens (55 and older) are free. Non-league and tournament prices may vary depending on CHSAA regulations.
