TSP believes all players competing at the highest level and or aspiring ambition should seek representation.
If you’re a young player the experience of ‘turning pro’ will be an exciting prospect, but there will also be many important decisions to make.
We have highlighted a number of key areas that should be considered:
1. Contact the Unions
The governing unions are very supportive and offer sound advice on the issues surrounding professional representation. Remember it is your future and they are there to help.
Always meet in person the individual manager who will be representing you. Ensure you discuss matters such as fees and terms with them. Allow time to review the agreement and don’t be intimidated into signing any agreement with the manager immediately. The management group should provide you with a duplicate copy of any agreement and should be obliged to release files or information upon termination.
