Letter Jackets Information & Policies

As students consider the purchase of a varsity letter jacket, please keep the following in mind. The letter jacket is an item of the uniform that is earned by the student through participation in a varsity level extracurricular activity at Woodward Academy. Being a part of Woodward’s uniform, there are specific regulations and guidelines concerning the purchase of the jacket, the items placed on the jacket, and the location of the allowed items.

Effective January 2008:

The jacket must be ordered through two avenues:

1. The Neff Company letter jacket representative who comes to the Upper School/Athletic Office  several times a year (listen for announcements). They can also be ordered online at www.neffco.com/neffjacketshop (Password 089248).
Woodward letter jacket order form.

OR

2. Through Woodward’s Campus Store which works with T & G Allsports in Fayetteville. They maintain a stock of Woodward letter jackets. Once the letter, numbers, eagle, etc are received by T&G, you will normally receive your completed letter jacket in 2 weeks. 

Please Note: Only items issued by the Woodward Academy Upper School Office or Athletic Office may be displayed on the jacket. These items are: WA letter or activity patch, eagle patch, all numbers, and the American flag (optional). No other patches, pins, numbers, etc. may be displayed unless given to the student by the Upper School or Athletic Office.

The position of the items for the letter jacket is as follows:

    a. A single WA letter or activity patch on the upper left front panel;
    b. The eagle patch on the upper portion of the left sleeve;
    c. The student’s jersey number on either sleeve;
    d. The student’s year of graduation on the right sleeve;
    e. The American flag patch (optional) on the back of the jacket centered below the collar;
    f.  Any region patches or special awards on the sleeves;
