Championship rings

What seems to be the standard practice of buying state championship rings for all players, coaches and staff?

We each ordered our own. Our coach gave us an order form from the company that designed them and they had a representative come in and sized our fingers. If I'm remembering correctly. Hope that helps!

Seniors designed the ringsand all players ordered their own from the rep who sized them. . Never asked but assumed coaches were paid for or at least partially by the program or school.

Players (their parents) paid for their own. Don't know about coaches

Our booster club paid a % and then the parents had to pick up the remainder of the cost. Coach and the captains designed the rings.

Or you could put donation cups around the town and take donations.......a team did that recently to get rings for players.

And staff.

And cheerleaders.........

Don't think there's a "standard" practice.

That would be pretty salty.

For the record I believe the families should foot the bill.
From talks I've had with parents on teams who won it not all decide to purchase rings.
Personally, if I was a frosh soph who does not play varsity I would not want a ring.

I imagine something can be done for those less fortunate to make payments.....

Staff....you foot your own. Personally, I'm not sure as a coach I would want one. The memories are what matters. Heck my state title plaques are in some box in th basement I think...

When the AD at La Salle refused to buy the legend Barrett Cohen's bling-he got salty and did what anyone else would do....he purchased his own ring. No shame in his game. He even paid for over night shipping. But at the end of the day-he did put in a ton of blood, sweat and tears.

I'm pretty sure the state puts a ceiling on what the cost of the ring can be. Though I would imagine if the athlete's family is paying the cost, the ring can be as much as they liked. Any situation I'm familiar with the, rings were purchased by the school, boosters and through donations.

The state only puts a cap on what a booster organization can contribute for each player. The ring can be however much you want. The state considers it a “gift” if a booster organization (or say a community business) pays for the ring and therefore they can contribute $200/player. If the team selects a ring that costs more than that then the player or their family pays the difference.

Well, we haven't had that problem yet. But for basketball, track, cross country and baseball the boosters have done that, yes.

Steubenville, as they have always done is raising private funds to provide rings for the kids. This is one situation where strong community support shows its value. That same support is the reason Steubenville passes levies when a great majority of districts can’t pass a levy to save their behinds. In an area where folks are struggling financially they always find a way to support their schools. ROLL RED ROLL

Steubenville passes levies because they are 90% state funded. Therefore, they can put a small millage on the ballet, to pass on to the voters. Not that it matters, but they are 50% open enrollment also.

50% OE.....what are you trying to say Bruce. You have no clue what you are talking about. Anything positive you twist into a negative when it comes to Steubenville. Go take a nap meathead.

The 50% came from one of your school administrators my friend.
