Lettering Criteria (Speech Team)

  • Lettering Criteria

    Math team members will receive a varsity letter if they meet one of the following criteria:

    1. Register and compete in at least 6 meets* (invitational, subsection, section, state)
    2. Have an exemplary coaching record, which entails scheduling and fulfilling two coaching sessions beginning a week before the student’s first scheduled competition.  One of the two coaching sessions may include the Thursday evening team meeting and practice.
    3. Assist at least two (2) hours in setting up for (or cleaning up after) one or more of the following events: Hilke Invitational, Parents’ Night, or the Speech/Debate Banquet.

    * If a team member qualifies for the State tournament and meets criteria 2-4, he or she will letter even if she/he competed in fewer than 6 meets (an unlikely event!)

    Note:  Except in case of emergency, a team member who fails to attend a competition for which he/she has registered will not letter.  Should the team member miss a second scheduled competition, he/she WILL be dropped from the team.
