King Cross Country:Letter Requirements

King Cross Country

VARSITY AWARDS AND LETTERS 2013

Please Note:  While the coaches do reserve the right to award a letter to any athlete regardless of point total, due to the objective nature of the lettering system and its broad-based, multi-faceted approach, such awards have never been given since this system's adoption in 2002.   100 points are required to letter. Less than 100 points will not letter.

League Championship and CIF Patches: League Championship patches are made available only for varsity letter earners who raced in the top nine (9) of King’s finishers at least once during the season. CIF Finalist/championship patches will be available to those who raced in, or served as an alternate on the CIF teams.

Varsity Letter Requirements:
The varsity letter for King Cross Country is awarded for both talent and effort. It is designed to be a valued award for running ability, hard work and dedication. The achievement of a varsity letter is not a right, but rather the result of a personal responsibility to act and behave all season in a “Varsity Manner,” meaning, an above average commitment to the team, the sport, to hard work and to improvement. A letter can be earned by anyone from any grade level. To earn a varsity letter in Cross Country, the athlete must do the following.

1. Finish the season in good standing with the coaches
2. Compete in at least three of the in-season Saturday invitationals
3. Maintain a “varsity attitude” throughout the season. A varsity attitude is demonstrated by an above-average commitment to the team’s goals, to the sport and to one’s individual improvement.
4. Maintain a 2.0 GPA
5. Don't quit. Quitting for any reason prior to the end of the season will disqualify an athlete from a letter.
6. Once the five criteria above have been achieved, the student-athlete must also earn 100 or more points from any of the following categories.


DISQUALIFIERS FOR EARNING A VARSITY LETTER
  1. Fall BELOW a 2.0 GPA at the end of the first quarter. Ineligibility will disqualify an athlete from lettering.
  2. Quitting for any reason prior to the end of the season will disqualify an athlete from a letter.
  3. Refusal to compete in a CIF race (if qualified to do so) will disqualify an athlete from a letter.
