Sail-World.com : ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team nominations sought
ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team nominations sought

Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA)

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. If appropriate, the committee may name an All-Conference team as well. 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 student-athlete, 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 regularly at the conference and national level 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.

Nominees are evaluated for excellence in the classroom and in their race record. National First and Second Team selections will have proven themselves to be highly competitive academically and in national competition.

Responsibility for submitting a nomination rests solely with the nominee and the nominee's institution. Nominations will be due no later than 5 pm EST on Friday, September 21st, 2012. In addition, each institution is limited to a maximum of three nominations. The 2012 All-Academic Sailing Team will be announced at the end of October, 2012.

The nomination procedure is a three step process. The nomination form can be submitted online here. You should receive a confirmation email once you have completed this portion of the process.

The second step is to print out the endorsement form and have it signed by an institution official. The third step is to print the student's transcript (unofficial is fine) and then fax both the endorsement form and transcript to (843) 408-4638 or scan and email both to Matt Lindblad at mitsail@mit.edu .

All nominations must be completed by 5pm EST on Friday, September 21, 2012.

Committee work will begin as soon as the nomination period closes. The Selection Committee consists of one representative from each of the seven ICSA conferences as appointed by the Conference Commissioner.

Any questions about the award, timeline, or submission process should be directed to Matt Lindblad via email or phone.

The ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team Selection Committee:
Matthew Lindblad-Chair, NEISA
Jenn Hockema-MCSA
Kyle Eaton-NWICSA
Dan Thompson-MAISA
John Vandemoer-PCCSC
Steven Davis-SAISA
Blake Billman-SEISA
