Lettering Criteria (Speech Team)
Math team members will receive a varsity letter if they meet one of the following criteria:
- Register and compete in at least 6 meets* (invitational, subsection, section, state)
- 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.
- 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.
