Re: Advisor fee and NCAA Eligibility

Anon
We have been approached by several advisors. Most charge a fee, claiming that players who retain unpaid advisors lose their NCAA eligibility. We have recently been approached by an agency offering to advise for free. They claim there is no NCAA edibility issues, so long as we don\\\'t accept money, gifts or agree to an agreement giving the agency rights to represent him if he goes pro.

I suspect the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

Can anyone help address this question?
Rules are clear. If you receive a service you must pay for it. There have been multiple players who have lost a full season of eligibility because they used a free advisor.

However there are plenty of scam advisors out there so you need to be careful.

This post is correct.

Re: Advisor fee and NCAA Eligibility

Reading this link carefully, it has everything to do with representation during pro team negotiations and nothing to do with the agent being an advisor to someone wanting to play college hockey. Pro agents know what they are doing.

Re: Advisor fee and NCAA Eligibility

I don't think it matters anymore because NCAA has a kid that pla*** in the OHL on a team along with hundreds of NCAA athletes now being paid to attend big time football school.

There is a rumor going around from a kids advisor that a player in hockey east is making a good chunk of change for not signing a pro deal.

Exactly

Re: Advisor fee and NCAA Eligibility

NCAA is dying out. Time to consider other leagues to play and get paid.
