FHSAA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Nominations Forms Now Available

The FHSAA would like to extend the opportunity for student-athletes in member schools to participate as part of the FHSAA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.  The purpose of the committee will be to provide a voice for student-athletes within the FHSAA governance structure, in the following areas:

  • Current issues facing student-athletes
  • Input regarding rules and regulations
  • Input on FHSAA special initiatives (e.g., sportsmanship campaign)
  • Promotion of a positive image of the student-athlete. 

The 16-member statewide committee will meet once or twice annually at the Robert W. Hughes FHSAA Building in Gainesville.  Projected meeting dates are Friday October 12, 2018 and Monday March 11, 2019.  Participation in these meetings is a mandatory requirement of the committee.  A student's participation would involve a trip to the meeting, accompanied by a chaperone.  Expenses (e.g., mileage, lodging, per diem) will be paid by the FHSAA. 

Please review the nomination form and select two student-athletes (one male and one female) in your school who have an interest in serving on the committee.  The FHSAA is interested in applicants who possess the following qualities:

  • must be an active student-athlete participating in at least one FHSAA-sanctioned or recognized sport;
  • must be a sophomore (rising junior) or junior (rising senior) in good academic and disciplinary standing;
  • must show a commitment toward representing the interests of all student-athletes;
  • must display strong character and commitment to sportsmanship and integrity; and
  • must demonstrate leadership in your school. 

Students who are interested in serving on the committee are encouraged to attend the Florida Student-Athlete Leadership Seminar on August 1 at West Port High School in Ocala, Florida.  Applications are available here.

Deadline to apply for the conference is May 31.
