State law requires fees for participation, but provides for waivers or a cap on the amount of money to be collected.
Code of State Rules West Virginia Manual for Expected Behaviors in Safe and Supportive Schools
Section 4. Extra-curricular Activities
Fees may be required to help support the cost of extra-curricular activities; however, the fees should be kept to a minimum in order to further equal opportunity for participation regardless of economic status. If fees are to be paid by a student who cannot afford those fees, school officials shall develop options that will allow the student to participate.
