In an effort to strengthen and empower the student-athlete camaraderie, SAAC hosts forums each semester open to all student-athletes. Each forum is centered around a camaraderie building activity for student-athletes from all sports to come and get to know one another.
Between a Ping Pong tournament, Corn Hole Tournament and much in between, SAAC Forums have exploded in popularity amongst student-athletes. In 2014, over 130 student-athletes were in attendance celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with a meal, a food drive, and themed Hungry Games (a competition of several Minute to Win It challenges between 8 teams composed of all sport student-athletes). This year, student-athletes participated in a sport-combined Fall Family Feud tournament! The Fall and Spring Family Feud Champions will face off live at the 2016 O.S.C.A.R.S.
SAAC Community Projects
In addition to the community service that all student-athletes have the opportunity to engage in, SAAC puts together a new community project every year that gives them the chance to leave a more permanent mark on the community. This project spans the entirety of one semester and allows the time for student-athletes to truly build a connection with those with whom they are working.
One Shirt One Body, was born on the campus of Notre Dame with the goal to unite the entire NCAA student-athlete body and their respective communities through the donation of excess university issued gear to those in need. Through this platform, student-athletes have the opportunity to motivate children or adults to pursue higher education by sharing their educational and athletic journeys.
- The overarching goals of One Shirt One Body include
- Empower each university’s SAAC group to make a palpable impact on members of their communities
- Build local support for universities through free marketing
- Introduce student-athletes to the platform so they are a force of good within their local communities
- Encourage higher education among the community’s disadvantaged youth
