LETTERMAN JACKET GUIDELINES
 
WISD will purchase lettermen jackets for 9th-12th grade athletes who have lettered in a VARSITY sport.  To be eligible to receive a jacket, an athlete MUST have participated in the sport that they are receiving the jacket in.  Additional medallions/bars will be awarded for participation in additional activities.  "Participation" is defined as entering the game, contest, or meet.  It is up to a coach's discretion to award a jacket to a athlete who has been loyal to the program.  All athletes must end the season in GOOD STANDING to be eligible to receive a jacket.
 
As per UIL, an athlete may only receive ONE lettermen's jacket during their high school career.  Jackets will be awarded within the next semester after an athlete has completed the stated requirements.  Jackets awarded become the property of the student athlete.
 
The funds for athletic jackets will be placed in the Athletic Department's budget.  Each head coach will turn in a list of athletes who are eligible to received a lettermen's jacket.  Approval from the Athletic Director/Athletic Coordinator will be required.  A list will be compiled and turned in to the Athletic Dept.
