LETTERING QUALIFICATIONS

3 Paths to a Varsity Letter...

1. Time Standards: Achieve Waconia Varsity Standard Time, Distance or Height twice in an event during the competitive season.  Please look over the “Varsity Standards” listed by event below. This gives all athletes on the team (JV included) the opportunity to earn a varsity letter though he/she may not score enough points to qualify for a letter during competitive meets. Note: standards are listed below

2. Points: Accumulate a minimum of 20 points for the season in competition at the varsity level.

Points system example: 1st place – 6, 2nd place – 5,  3rd place - 4, etc...

One fourth (¼) of the scoring points awarded will be counted in relay events. Competition points will be awarded in scored meets only (6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1)

3. Senior Status: A Senior who has been in good standing within the program for three years, will be awarded a letter even if he/she has not met the previous two criteria.
