Start a Lettering Program

A lettering program provides an opportunity for your student athletes to be recognized like other school sports for specific achievements that include time commitment, academics, and athleticism. Student athletes on your team are very proud to represent your school and showcase their accomplishments. Make sure you treat the program the same way.
