The concepts reviewed this week have interested me most, but what interested me most is the relationship between athletes and their agents and how the relationships are regulated under sports law. I learned about the Uniform Athlete Agents Act that governs the conduct of individuals contacting athletes to obtain agency contracts, notifies learning institutions when a student-athlete signs an agency contract, provides a remedy for a learning institution damaged by a student-athlete or athlete agent’s conduct and establishes criminal and civil penalties. I also learned how to register as an athlete agent, which I have always wanted to do to support my younger brother, a student-athlete with an ambition to join a national football team.
I need to focus on sports law to be equipped with all the legal obligations I must follow to become my brother’s agent. Sports law will also enlighten me on how to respond to legal issues I may face while operating as an athlete agent. According to Sharp et al. (2021), sports law also equips individuals with knowledge of sports injury and concussion litigation, athlete activism, student-athletes, and marketing rights. This information is essential in maintaining a professional relationship with athletes when I become an agent.
I intend to begin applying the material learned so far to monitor the relationship between my brother and his current agent to ensure he is not being treated unfairly. I also intend to use the information to determine whether the agent representing my brother has met all requirements to avoid risking my brother’s future football career. I can also apply what I have learned to advise my brother on managing his relationship with his agent by enlightening him on his responsibilities and fiduciary duty.
