Welcome to the webpage of the Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) at The College of William & Mary.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with SAAC, it is an organization made up of representatives from each of the Tribe's twenty-two athletic teams. We meet bi-weekly to discuss issues pertinent to student-athletes, make decisions on key NCAA legislation, and provide insight on the student-athlete experience. Representatives serve as the voice of their team and assume the responsibility of the primary communication link between the William & Mary Athletic Department and their teammates and coaches.
SAAC is broken down into four sub-committees: Service, Social, Public Relations, and CHAMPS. Within these segments, the student-athletic community is brought together through community outreach projects, athlete social events, and friendly team competitions. Over the course of the last year, SAAC has put an additional emphasis on extending its presence in the community. Some of our most prominent service projects include the creation of the "One Tribe. One Family." wristbands, Tribe Birdies for Breast Cancer, Food Baskets for FISH, and Tribe Tutors. Our mission is to continue to develop these initiatives this year, as well as embark on additional ventures to help new causes.
With the existence of this webpage, we hope that SAAC will become more apparent in the Tribe Athletics community. Meeting minutes, upcoming events, and service opportunities will be posted to this site on a weekly basis. Please check in and get involved! For additional updates on what is going on, please friend 'Tribe SAAC' on Facebook and follow @TribeSAAC on Twitter!
Best of luck to all of our teams this year!
