NCAA (Family Advisor):

The Family Advisor essentially performs similar duties as an agent, but due to very strict NCAA regulations preventing a student-athlete from having an agent, the “Family Advisor” term is used so the student-athlete can keep his options open. A Family Advisor must be paid for his time and services and they are prohibited from being rewarded for securing a scholarship. 

  • Young athletes, referred to as “prospective student-athletes” (PSA), are not permitted to have agents who market their hockey skills or negotiate with professional teams on their   behalf. The definition of a professional team includes major junior teams (NCAA bylaw

  • PSA may not have written or oral agreements with agents. This includes agreements for future representation.

  • Family members of PSA's are not permitted to have written or oral agreements with agents.

  • PSA's are not permitted to accept benefits from agents, such as money, meals, clothing, hockey equipment, or other things of value.

  • PSA's and their families are permitted to have advisors to offer guidance and advice, so long as that advisor does not market his or her client’s hockey skills or negotiate with professional teams on behalf of the client.

  • If a PSA's or his/her family uses the services of an advisor, he must compensate that advisor in an amount equal to the services provided. A modest annual fee is recommended.
