Criteria for Earning a Varsity Letter
Historically, athletes couldearn a letter in Winter Track by winning a medal in one of the indoor meets. With approximately 65 member schools in our league, this criterion often limited that accomplishment to a select few. In order to recognize those individuals who make a significant contribution to the team but may be unable to place in the top four in a meet, “Varsity”status will be awarded on the basis of a point system.
Points may be earned in thefollowing ways:
Participation in practice – 1pt. per practice (approximately 65 practices)
Participation in VolunteerActivities for team – 10 Pts.
Competition in Meets – 10 ptsper meet
Medal Winner – 5 pts.
Qualify for “Meet of Champs”– 5 pts.
Return uniform on time – 5pts.
Varsity award = 120 pts.
Participation award = 80 pts.
At the discretion of the coaches, individuals may berecognized for outstanding efforts that support the team.
