The Lion's Den

Abstract

As in any sport, excellence is its own reward. The Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge is no exception. We salute our outstanding athletes who have distinguished themselves on the course. Lion Apparel has been a proud sponsor of the Challenge since its inception in 1992. Following the scholastic varsity athletic paradigm, the letterman jacket program was initiated in 1998 to recognize those athletes who strive and succeed by posting times that place them at the top of our sport.

Protocol

The criteria for winning a jacket (one jacket for the life of the program) is time-based and as follows:

• Sub 100 Male (Defined: A male competitor whose regional or world championship time is less than or equal to 100 seconds)

• Sub 3:00 Female (Defined: A female competitor whose regional or world championship time is less than or equal to 3:00)

• Sub 3:30 Over 40 Female (Defined: An over 40 female competitor whose regional or world championship time is less than or equal to 3:30)

• Sub 2:00 Over 40 (Defined: An over 40 competitor whose regional or world championship time is less than or equal to 2:00)

• Sub 2:30 Over 50 (Defined: An over 50 competitor whose regional or world championship time is less than or equal to 2:30)

• Sub 4:00 Over 60 (Defined: An over 50 competitor whose regional or world championship time is less than or equal to 4:00)

Procedures

The awardees will receive their Lion Varsity Jackets, helmet sticker, lapel pin and their framed Certificate of Achievement at the Lion's Den Induction ceremony that will take place coincidental with each year’s World Challenge. Individuals who meet the admission criteria during the World Challenge will be recognized the following World Challenge.

Any member meeting the criteria for admission to the Lion's Den will be recognized immediately after their qualifying run and will be awarded the Lion's Den Challenge Coin at that time. They do not receive a second coin at the Induction Ceremony.
