Varsity Letterman Jackets

Viking Varsity Letterman Jackets are now available with our new city partner, Chicago Balfour. They have worked with us to develop the best representation of school spirit and pride. 
 
As your student-athlete participates in Amundsen Athletic Programs, they will be able to accumulate Junior Varsity and Varsity Letters and sport pins for each sport, along with a certificate of completion. You are not obligated to purchase a Letterman Jacket but what better way to show your school spirit and pride than to wear a jacket and show off your accomplishments. You can work with Chicago Balfour to customize your jacket to your personal preference. 
 
The criteria for earning the AHS Junior Varsity/Varsity Letter have been established by the Athletic Director. The criteria is intended to encourage students to persevere toward the goal of earning the  letter rather than to discourage or belittle anyone who fails to attain the standards. 
 
Earning a JV/V Letter is a major accomplishment in the world of athletics. It is evidence that you have excelled not only on the playing field, but also in the classroom. Student-athletes are reminded that these letters are recognition awards determined by the head coach in conjunction with the Athletic Director. 
 
Those who complete the sport season are awarded with: 
 
Junior Varsity or Varsity Letter (note that one letter is provided each year for multiple sports)
Corresponding Sport Pin
Sport Completion Certificate
 
 
Each player that earns a certificate has joined an elite group of athletes who has sacrificed many hours in practice, preparation, conditioning, and games.
