Merritt Badge Program

Wait, shouldn’t these be spelled with one “t” as in merit badge? Nope. That’s an homage to our team’s owner.

As a member of the Patch Patrol, you have a chance to earn Merritt Badges for your support. Some are available all the time and some are just for special one-time events. The most widely available Merritt Badges are for Away Match attendance. You can earn one of these badges by just showing up and rooting for the club!
