The SAAC is sponsored by the Athletics Department, under the direction of Stacey Marshall and Steve Maas. It is comprised of 12 students (6 male and 6 female) in grades 10-12. The SAAC will consist of three sub-committees, which are centered on community service, school spirit and character/leadership. Students must be involved in Kinkaid Athletics at any level. Students will apply annually in the spring and will serve on the SAAC for one school calendar year. SAAC directors will review applications for the Student Athlete Advisory Committee and obtain input from the Athletics Department faculty in selecting students who have demonstrated a high level of commitment to Kinkaid Athletics, strong character and leadership ability. Meetings will be held monthly before school and there will be one summer training session during June.
