  • Accepting a promise of pay even if such pay is to be received following competition;
  • Signing a contract or commitment to play professional athletics ;
  • Receiving any form of financial assistance from a professional sports organization (except as permitted);
  • Competing on any professional athletics team, even if no pay is received;
  • Entering a professional draft;
  • Entering into an agreement with an agent.


If contacted by or considering whether to sign with an agent to help represent you in negotiations with a professional sports team, please consult the following resources and the compliance office.
