Varsity Lettering Program

Amateur Youth Sports Foundation is excited to launch Taekwondo Varsity Lettering Program. Varsity Lettering Program was started to recognize and honor student athletes in grades nine through twelve. This program allows high school students to received a varsity letter, just like that of any other varsity high school athlete. Earning a Varsity letter through AYSF is a great way for a student to get recognized for his or her dedication to the taekwondo sport. Getting recognized as a varsity letter holder can benefit athlete in several ways other than just being formally recognized. One way it helps is when completing college applications or resumes, because getting recognized through a formal foundation gives more credibility.

 

The lettering can also help athletes avoid taking an extra physical education credit. Some schools count sports outside the classroom for this requirement. This can allow a student to put taekwondo training towards their physical education instead of having to take the actual class, just like a varsity sports players could do.

Varsity Letter in Volunteerism
(coming soon)

 

Future Varsity Letter in Volunteerism program encourages AYSF members to volunteer throughout their local community, which aligns with our foundation goals to build a stronger community. 

 

Each year, the Amateur Youth Sports Foundation along with The President's Volunteer Service Award will recognize and reward student for their volunteer efforts in the community through AYSF. Members who volunteers 200 or more hours of service can earn their varsity letter in volunteerism. This provides an avenue for student to earn a letter other than through academics or athletics and gives them valuable experiences.

 

Hours can be accumulated throughout all four years of high school (as long as you were a AYSF active member all years). For every 200 hours you served you can apply annually and receive a Varsity Letter. Your hours can start counting from the first day after you complete the 8th grade (the summer prior to the first day of your freshman year or 9th grade).
