The USA South Athletic Conference will once again turnover its Instagram account to select teams on specific weekends throughout the 2018-19 athletic year. During the winter months of basketball season, 11 teams, as well as the USA South Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), will have the opportunity to share their experiences, through pictures and videos, while competing away from their respective campuses. This is the fourth year the USA South has conducted its "Instagram Takeover" initiative. This past fall, eight teams and one President, had the opportunity to takeover the League Instagram account.
This week(end's) takeover, January 23-26, will feature USA South SAAC members attending the NCAA Convention in Orlando, Florida. The USA South is sponsoring one student-athlete from each of the League's 18 member institutions to attend the annual NCAA event. The student-athletes will have the opportunity to meet other SAAC members from conferences across the nation, participate in professional development activities, interact with local Special Olympic athletes and learn more about the NCAA legislative process. This is the second time in three years the USA South has arranged for some of its student-athletes to attend the convention as in 2017, 25 individuals traveled to Nashville, Tennessee.
Please follow the USA South Instagram account at www.instagram.com/USA_South and the hashtag "#USASouthTakeover" as these teams give everyone an inside look into a League member's experience during a road trip.
