maybe this should be called the roster total. In many sports the benches are filled with participants who cheer from the sidelines. At least in cross country and track & field the athletes are actually part of the action.

We must also consider that sports like soccer and basketball have roster maxes whereas both track and cross country are limitless when it comes to team members.

It would be really interesting to know the total number of students in California to which these participation numbers could be compared. You would probably have to multiply that number by 3 to get a true percentage of sports participation to avoid double counting kids who do more than one sport in any given school year....
