Under NCAA Bylaw 12.3, a student-athlete (any individual who currently participates in or who may be eligible in the future to participate in intercollegiate sport) may not agree verbally or in writing to be represented by an athlete agent in the present or in the future for the purpose of marketing the student-athlete's ability or reputation. If the student-athlete enters into such an agreement, the student-athlete is ineligible for intercollegiate competition.

Also, a student-athlete may not accept transportation or other benefits from an agent. This prohibition applies to the student-athlete and his or her relatives or friends.

Cooperate with an institution’s professional sports counseling panel, which is set up to assist student-athletes with, among other things if applicable, choosing an agent.

Encourage student-athletes you have been in contact with to keep their institution’s compliance officers apprised of your conversations so that the athletics department can be prepared to respond to inquires from the media or the NCAA.

Familiarize yourself with the Uniform Athlete Agents Act and the states in which it, or similar legislation, has been enacted.


Enter into an agreement for future representation with prospective or enrolled student-athletes with remaining collegiate eligibility, even if you will not act as their representative until their eligibility is exhausted.
