As per Policy 19.6.1 in the FHSAA Handbook: There will be a Student-Athlete Advisory Committee to provide a voice in the FHSAA governance structure to the Association’s largest constituency – the more than 240,000 participating student-athletes. The committee will focus on the following areas: current issues facing student-athletes, input regarding rules and regulations, input on FHSAA special initiatives (e.g., sportsmanship program), and promoting a positive image of the student-athlete.

Nomination Process

On May 1, 2020, the FHSAA will extend the opportunity for student-athletes in member schools to participate as part of the FHSAA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.  Nomination forms will be sent to member school athletic directors via e-mail and made available on this webpage.  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.  A student’s participation would involve a trip to the meeting, accompanied by a chaperone.

Students interested in applying to the committee are encouraged to attend the 2019 Florida Student-Athlete Leadership Seminar on July 16 at West Port High School in Ocala, Florida.  Applications are available here.  Deadline to apply for the leadership seminar is June 3, 2019.
