What qualifies as a varsity sport letter? At my school, we can receive a letter for participation various band activities. The points are awarded based on what group you are a part of and any other extra band activities you participate in such as Marching Band (me 4 years), Pep/Basketball band (me 3 years, but 4 later on this year), Jazz band (me 1 semester), Honor band auditions, (me 2 auditions), and other leadership activities (field crew coordinator and attendance manager this year.) I have done a lot to earn this letter, and hopefully a second one later this year, and even though it isn't a sport, I feel that I have put just as much if not more effort into it than some of the sports players. (During marching season, we usually put in close to 30 hours per week) Does this qualify as a varsity sport letter even though band isn't technically a sport? Also how does the Academy figure in Academic letters?
