ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team 2011 nominations sought

by ICSA All - Academic Committee on 12 Aug 2011
. .
The ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team recognizes those scholar athletes who have distinguished themselves in national and intersectional competition, while achieving the highest levels of academic excellence.

The ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team (AAST) was inaugurated in 2006, and joins the ICSA All-American Sailing Team, which recognizes outstanding competitive performance only.

Each year, up to 10 scholar athletes are selected for the National First Team, with up to another 10 selected for the National Second Team. In order to be eligible for consideration, a scholar-athlete must have a junior or senior academic standing, and have completed one full academic year at the member institution prior to the year for which the award is being received. The nominee must have achieved a minimum cumulative overall grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.00 scale. Each nomination must be endorsed by a college official (sports information director, club sports official, team advisor, or coach).

As a competitor, the nominee must be a key starter or reserve member of their institution's sailing team; no distinction is made between sailors who compete for teams that are considered varsity sports or club sports by their
respective institution. The nominee must have sailed in any of the six ICSA national championship disciplines (coed double-handed, women's double-handed, men's single-handed, women's single-handed, coed team racing, or coed sloops), in any capacity (skipper or crew), though the nominee is not required to have competed in a national championship event.

Responsibility for submitting a nomination rests solely with the nominee and the nominee's institution. Nominations will be due no later than Friday, September 9th, 2011. In addition, each institution is limited to a maximum of three nominations. The 2011 All-Academic Sailing Team will be announced in the end of September of 2011.

The nomination procedure is a three step process. The nomination form can be submitted online at
http://www.collegesailing.org/docs/submitaastnomination.asp.

The second step is to print out the endorsement form and have an institution official sign.

The third step is to print the student’s transcript (unofficial is fine) and then fax both documents to (843) 408-4615 or scan and email both to Matt Lindblad at mitsail(at)mit.edu

All nominations must be received by 5pm on Friday, September 9, 2011.
