• COACHES GUIDELINES FOR EARNING VARSITY SPORT LETTERS/JACKET: When an athlete qualifies for their first varsity letter in a sport he/she will be presented with a sport pin and a bar. If the athlete continues to earn letters they will be presented with a bar for each year in which they letter. When that athlete earns a second varsity letter during or after his/her 10th grade year, he/she will be presented with a varsity letter jacket with an “E” on it. Junior High Sports: No letter awards/bars will be presented.

    The following rules govern the awarding of the athletic insignia:

    * Each player must attend every practice and game session throughout the season. Plausible excuses will be recognized by the coach if he or she is notified in advanced.

    •  Each player must adhere to all training regulations established by the coach.

    •  Each player must adhere to all training regulations established by the PIAA and the

      scholastic and eligibility standards set forth by EASD.

      If a player is academically ineligible two times during a season or has another Code of Conduct violation, they will not be eligible to receive a letter. If they are ineligible three times they may be removed from the team.

    •  Every player is expected to maintain an attitude of true sportsmanship throughout the season.
