On behalf of the Peach Belt Conference Student Athlete Advisory Committee, the PBC SAAC would like to welcome you and thank you for visiting the official PBC SAAC webpage. I am Alex Sickman, and currently am a Student Assistant Coach on the Augusta State University baseball team. I also have the honor and responsibility of serving as the Chair of the PBC Student Athlete Advisory Committee. This will be my third year being involved with the SAAC committee, 2nd as ASU’s President, and first as the Chair of the PBC SAAC.

The role of the PBC SAAC is as varied as the student athletes who make up the committee. Mainly the purpose of this committee is to provide a voice and an outlet for each and every student athlete on every campus across the Peach Belt. That voice is heard by the various administrations from campuses, conference office, and the NCAA. We provide feedback and vote on various legislation every year that has a direct role on rules, games, and student athlete well being. The PBC SAAC is also active in trying to provide opportunities for student athletes from across the conference to be active in local communities through charity engagement and assorted service projects. Over the past few years, the NCAA Division II has partnered with the Make-a-Wish foundation raising awareness and financial support for granting “wishes” for children battling terminal illnesses.

The PBC SAAC is dedicated to the development of the ‘whole’ student athlete from the field or court to the classroom and preparing students for life. The PBC and SAAC are committed to ensuring that student athletes have a Life in Balance, which is an initiative that was put in place to separate Division II from either other division. NCAA Division II is committed to allowing student athletes the opportunity to experience both college athletics and a semi-normal college experience.

            I would like to personally thank you again for visiting our website and hope that it is informative and one that you will check out periodically to find out what individual SAACs are doing across the Peach Belt Conference.
