CRITERIA FOR EARNING A LETTER

The following requirements must be met in order to receive a varsity letter for swim and dive.  Additionally, managers can receive a letter for attending all meets and/or helping out coaches with various tasks to be determined.  Ultimately, the coaches have the final say in whether or not an athlete or manager receives a letter.

Scoring: An athlete must score 25 points for the team at any Varsity meet during the season.  This usually consists of scoring in the top 2 or 3 on the team in an event, but can also be scoring in the top 10 or 20 of an event depending on the type of meet.

Attendance: An athlete must not miss more than 1 meet and/or 6 practices throughout the season.  The exception to this rule is missing a meet due to a mandatory year round team meet.  Please plan college visits, appointments, and vacations/holidays with this in mind.

Coaches' discretion:  The coaches have the final say in whether or not an athlete receives a letter.

Varsity letter: A Varsity letter is awarded to an athlete/manager who has met the established criteria of a particular sport for the first time. Only one actual letter is awarded to an athlete/manager during his/her high school career. Subsequent Varsity awards are represented by sport/manager pins or large bars.

Varsity sport pins: A Varsity sport pin (swimmer/diver) is awarded to an athlete who has met the established criteria of a particular sport for the first time.

Varsity large bar: A Varsity large bar is awarded to an athlete/manager who has met the established criteria of a particular sport more than once (the first time you get a pin).

Captain pin: A captain pin is awarded to an athlete who has served as the team captain throughout the season who has met the established criteria set out for a captain.

Manager pin: A manager pin is awarded to an individual who has served as the team manager throughout the season who has met the established criteria set out for a manager.

Letters, pins, bars and certificates will be handed out at the end of the season at the Annual Awards Banquet Ceremony.  Letter jackets may be purchased directly from the vendor at designated times throughout the school year as announced in the morning announcements and PTSA e-blasts.  Students and parents should watch for these announcements for dates of these fittings.  Please note that Letter Jackets are NOT arranged or provided by the Booster Club.
