Over the three-day period, the student-athletes and advisors discussed national SAAC matters, including NCAA legislation, national trends and topics that will be addressed at the national SAAC meeting in July.
The student-athletes were joined by Dr. Jarrod Spencer, a sports psychologist and founder and president of Mind of the Athlete, as well as Kelly Rossi, a sports nutritionist at the University of Delaware. The student-athletes were engaged during both presentations and were able to incorporate the information provided into the discussions and activities for the remainder of the weekend.
Throughout the summit, the student-athletes strategized on how SAAC can work with campus administrators and the CAA office throughout the year to strengthen the conference SAAC program, create conference-wide initiatives and enhance the student-athlete experience at CAA Championships.
In addition to addressing conference and national SAAC business, the student-athletes compiled care packages for United States military service members as part of a community initiative project.
