Littleton ESD Athletics

We believe athletics are an essential component to our schools’ academic programs. Participation in sports offers unique opportunities to promote self-discipline, improve self-image, and encourage a healthy sense of competition. Developing these principles and promoting character development leads to academic, athletic, personal, social, and career success. The ultimate objective of our program is to improve our athletes’ skills while teaching sportsmanship and having fun.

Athletics Seasons:

  • Fall: Boys and girls basketball and cheerleading at participating schools
  • Winter: Flag football, girls volleyball, and cheerleading at participating schools
  • Spring: Boys and girls soccer, and cheerleading at participating schools
  • Summer: Boys baseball, girls softball, and cheerleading at participating schools

Participation Requirements

In order to participate in our school athletics programs, students need a completed parent/student agreement, consent for emergency care, annual pre-participation physical, Littleton Concussion Acknowledgement, sports try-out form, and to have paid athletics fees. You will find all of these forms in the athletics handbook

Athletics Fees

There is a fee of $25 per student, per sport ($60 annually per student or $90 annually per family) assessed for uniforms and equipment. This fee is non-refundable and cannot be transferred between students; it is however, applied to the school tax credit on your state income tax return. Scholarships are available; please contact your school’s athletics director or principal for more information.


We use the following procedures to assess student eligibility for sports:

  • Students must attend at least half the school day to participate in games.
  • Students must demonstrate academic proficiency.
    • Progress is checked weekly during the season with grade verification.
    • Forms for each teacher to sign off forms must be returned to coaches the same day they are signed.
    • All athletes with failing marks or non-returned forms will be temporarily ineligible for play.
  • Three ineligibility rulings in one season render athletes permanently ineligible for the remainder of the season.
