Why The Players NIL?

Frequently Asked Questions

The Five Pillars Course is a comprehensive online course that covers 5 key areas surrounding NIL. It is meant to provide student-athletes, parents, coaches, and athletic administrators with a strong foundational knowledge of NIL and how it can be effectively leveraged to the athlete’s advantage.

 

Pillar 1: Personal Brand Development
Pillar 2: Influencer and Brand Relations
Pillar 3: Legal, Tax, and Compliance
Pillar 4: Philanthropy and Community Service
Pillar 5: Financial Literacy

 

For more information on each individual pillar, contact us today.

This is an online, self-guided course. You can take it at your own pace, go back and review previous modules as needed, and take your time – it’s all up to you!

The course contains 5 modules. Each module will take approximately one hour to complete, therefore the entire course will generally take about 5 hours total.

  • High school student-athletes – especially those just starting their journey. 
  • College student-athletes – especially those who don’t think NIL opportunities are for them. 
  • Parents of student-athletes who want to help their kids
  • Coaches who want to be versed in the NIL landscape
  • High school and college administrators that want to provide their student-athletes
  • Anyone who values learning professional development and personal brand building skills.

Because there are NIL opportunities for every student-athlete right now. A strong NIL road map teaches critical life skills including personal branding, money management, taxes, social media and philanthropic endeavors – valuable skills for life after college sports.

While NIL rules have been loosened at the college level and more states allow high school student-athletes to monetize their NIL rights, student-athletes everywhere and at every level shouldn’t wait until college to start building their personal brands.

With ongoing text, email, and one-on-one help, we are available to help you get started or continue learning today.

 

We also offer one-on-one consultations – contact us today and we can schedule a call to help you figure out your NIL goals and how to reach them.
