Student Athletic Board (SAB) has been an integral part of the Indiana University Athletic Department and student body since 1956. As time has passed, the organization has grown and its responsibilities within the athletic department have continued to expand.
SAB was created to give the athletic department a link to the students. In return, SAB provides students the opportunity to be an active part of the planning, organizing, and successful completion of athletic events. Any student can become a crimson guard member. As a member of SAB, there are many opportunities available for you.
The roles of SAB are very diverse. Some of them include ball running at soccer and field hockey games, organizing campus activities like Homecoming and Parent’s Weekend, and simply cheering on the Hoosier teams at a Spirit Section. These are just a few of the tasks that SAB performs to assist the athletic department and all varsity sports.
The organization relies on the dedication of its 16 Directors, approximately 100 Committee Chairpersons, and around 800 Crimson Guard Members to carry out its responsibilities. Each varsity sport at IU has Directors who are responsible for making sure that the head coach’s needs are met.
The director also works to increase student and community attendance at athletic events (many of them free with a student ID) by working with the Athletics Marketing Office to promote special events. The mission of SAB is to be The Spirit Behind IU Athletics. This is accomplished by encouraging student involvement in all Indiana University athletic events. As a SAB member, you become a part of the tremendous history surrounding Indiana University and IU athletics.
