Athletic Service Board

Student Athletes Competing, Supporting, Serving


 

The athletic department’s Athletic Service Board (ASB) is comprised of at least two student-athletes from each varsity sport. This committee was established to give student-athletes a voice and representation in the decision making of Furman athletics. ASB firmly believes that cooperation and support amongst athletes from all sports is vital to the success of the athletic department here at Furman. Through student-athlete reps, ASB promotes the communication between all members of athletic teams to leaders of the athletic department, the university, the Southern Conference, and the NCAA. The Athletic Service Board serves as Furman’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee to the Southern Conference and NCAA levels.

ASB is an official student organization under the framework of SGA and has been recognized as a difference making organization both on and off campus. A proactive attitude has taken the Athletic Service Board to new heights. Over the past seven years, members of the board have participated in the athletic department’s strategic planning process, developed a list of on-campus activities for student-athletes, posted athletic calendars on campus, organized special team recognition nights at athletic events, organized campus-wide activities at athletics events, been active volunteers in community service projects, raised money for Relay-For-Life, helped plan the athletics banquets, and organized the student-athlete field day. ASB has also taken the initiative to plan events that integrate Furman athletes into the community.

In the future the committee could address national student-athlete issues as well as issues relating only to Furman student-athletes. If there is an issue which you think should be addressed, contact your team representatives. If you are interested in serving, contact your coach or ASB advisor, Chris Colvin.
