Athlete-Partner Advisory Council
The Athlete-Partner Advisory Committee (APAC) is a forum for athletes and partners to explore and discuss issues that
affect their athletic experience on a day-to-day basis. This council broadens the involvement of athletes and partners in
athletic competitions and community events. The APAC encourages a sense of unity, common purpose, and camaraderie in all sports and among all athletes and partners, and allows for input to be made on the rules, regulations, and policies that affect the lives of athletes and partners within SOLA.
