Participation Points System

The participation of our Leaders is crucial to the success of the Link Crew program. Points are accumulated every time a Leader participates in a Link Crew activity.

Participation points begin accumulating after Orientation and Carnival are completed.  Students must complete BOTH days training (without leaving early or arriving late), and BOTH days of orientation.  Acceptance into the Link Crew Program is conditional on the full completion of training and orientation days.

There are several required Link Crew events throughout the entire school year. Most required events consist of monthly meetings, trainings, freshman academic & social activities, athletic events, dances, and other school activities.

  • Leaders who attend a Link Crew event/activity will earn one point (1).
  • Leaders who miss a required Link Crew event/activity will have one point deducted (-1).
  • Leaders who miss a lunch meeting will have two points deducted (-2).

Leaders will have the opportunity to make-up their point deduction by attending Link Crew events that are not required, which may include Link Crew fundraisers, athletic events, and dances, among others.

A running Participation Log is kept online.

ALL FRESHMAN SPECIFIC EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES ARE REQUIRED.

Some examples are

  • Home Football Games

JOURNALS

Journals are used to ensure that leaders are maintaining a good relationship with freshmen.

Link Crew Leaders are required to keep a journal and chronicle their interactions with their freshmen.  The journal may be used in any way the Link Crew Leader chooses, so long as it is understood that it will be read by a Coordinator.  Journal submissions may earn 1 to 4 points for each leader, depending on the quality of the journal.  Journals are due every Friday.
