Being on a varsity-level sport team is a sign of great athletic ability. Only the best athletes are allowed on top-tier teams, and these skilled individuals deserve public recognition of their abilities. Handing out pins, known as varsity pins or chenille pins, to members of a varsity team is a time-honored tradition that recognizes their athletic achievement. Reward deserving members of your team with a varsity pin today!
The Purpose of a Varsity Letter Pin
A varsity pin is typically handed out to members of a varsity-level sports team as a sign of their membership. To individuals who are on the team for the first year, the pin is given along with the varsity letter, an embroidered patch displaying the team’s logo. Individuals who are on the varsity team for two or more years are typically not given more letters, instead receiving another pin for each year they are on the team. The varsity letter and the varsity pin are meant to be worn on the letterman jacket, with both items traditionally attached to the left chest. Possessing a varsity letter pin and wearing it on a letterman jacket shows athletic achievement and membership to an exclusive group of athletes.
