What is VSAAC?

The Varsity Student Athlete Advisory Committee, VSAAC, strives to represent and support our varsity athletic teams by building a positive and productive relationship with our athletic department. VSAAC is a group of student-athletes that meets once a week to discuss athletic concerns. We deal with the issues of individual teams and the concerns of student athletes. One of our goals is to raise school spirit. We sell athletic apparel, sponsor Midnight Madness for the basketball teams, and hold spirit days for each varsity team. We also participate in many community service activities. In the past, we have sponsored a toy drive for Toys for Tots and collected old athletic shoes to help a local school afford new facilities.

If you are a member of the UR athletic community, we strongly encourage you to get to know what VSAAC is, and what we can do for you. Talk to the representative for your team about any issues that you have with the UR athletic program. Feel free to send contact the committee by clicking on the contact link above.
