Each Varsity Softball Player can earn patches for their outstanding accomplishments in practice or in games. Each patch has a different meaning and is meant to be an incentive for each player to strive to earn. There is no limit to the number of patches a player can earn so by the end of the season you could have quite a few. The only rule to earning patches is to demonstrate the proper skill, attitude, or team play. DO NOT ASK TO BE REWARDED WITH A PATCH. The coaches will award patches at the end of a practice or the day following a game.
