Retired Jersey Policy


Retired Jersey Policy

The Jefferson Athletic Department is proud to announce a new opportunity, through the retirement of athletic jerseys, to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our former student-athletes.

Available for your review is a policy outlining the requirements for nominating a former student-athlete to have his/her jersey retired. Please be aware that the honor shall be the retirement of the former student-athlete’s jersey, not his/her number. We realize over the many decades of successes at Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science,  Philadelphia University and Jefferson that a number of former student-athletes may warrant this recognition. We now feel that this policy allows the committee members to reward individuals whose playing accomplishments deserve such considerations.

The retirement of jerseys will be held in conjunction with hall of fame ceremonies that are held in May of the even years. We hope that you will consider reviewing our new policy and encourage any individuals who you deem worthy of such an honor to apply or that you take the initiative to nominate them personally.

Should you have any questions or need for clarifications please feel free to contact the Director of Athletics or Chair of the Committee and we will be happy to assist.
