WHAT COACHES NEED TO KNOW
As a coach, you’ve probably been thrown headfirst into NIL. Unlike student athletes, many coaches have received little to no training on NIL. Whether you want to be able to answer questions from recruits and current athletes or want to make sure you’re operating within the laws/rules, our NIL for Coaches workshop series will prepare you for what lies ahead.
The workshop series will take place August – September 2023 with live sessions that include Q&A. Recordings will be available for any session you can’t attend live. Discounts will be available for multiple coaches from one institution.
NIL Laws & Rules
From NCAA rules and clarifications to state laws and high school sports association rules, know exactly what you can and can’t do.
Who's Making Money & How
DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, high school—athletes are making bank at every level. Learn how so you can help your athletes.
NIL & Recruiting
What can you say? When can you say it? Use NIL as a recruiting advantage without breaking the rules.
Working with Collectives

Key Legal Issues

Keep yourself and your athletes eligible while still embracing NIL. We’ll talk about the “NIL presumption” and much more.
BONUS: International Student Athletes
We’re also going to be offering a bonus session with immigration attorneys to talk through the opportunities available for international student athletes, other types of visas that might be available to them and review some of what we’ve seen in the marketplace that does or doesn’t work.
