Athlete Council

The Athlete Council is composed of 9 or 10 athletes - one athlete representative for each weapon and gender (totaling 6), USOC Athlete Advisory Council (AAC) Representative,  USOC AAC Alternate, and one wheelchair Athlete. If a member of the AAC is elected to serve as a member of the USOC AAC Leadership group, that member shall become an ex-officio member of the AAC.

If any athlete has a weapon-specific concern, problem, protest, or question, the athlete should contact their weapon representative which can be found by locating him or her below. Any issues in general should be sent to the Athlete Chair, Katharine Holmes.
