Virginia Tech Program For Student-Athlete Representation
(Agents & Financial Advisors)

All prospective representatives (agents and financial advisors) wishing to communicate with current Virginia Tech student-athletes must be registered with the Virginia Tech Program for Student-Athlete Representation (VTPSAR). Information provided in the registration process will be validated. Successful applicants will be notified once their registration form is received and approved.

KEY POLICIES OF THE PROGRAM:
  • Prospective representatives are expected to notify the VT Compliance Office - by phone or e-mail - prior to initiating direct contact with a student-athlete or a member of his/her family.
  • Correspondence from prospective representatives to student-athletes may be sent through the VT Compliance Office.
  • In those cases where correspondence is sent directly from a prospective representative to a student-athlete or member of his/her family, we require such correspondence to be copied to the VT Compliance Office.
  • Student-athletes are expected to notify the VT Compliance Office whenever a prospective representative initiates direct contact with them.

Time periods will be designated for in-person contact to occur between student-athletes and prospective representatives. Prior to the exhaustion of their competitive eligibility, student-athletes are not permitted to meet with prospective representatives during "restricted" periods.

Agents or financial advisors found to be in violation of the program's policies will be removed from the VTPSAR database and will not be included in approved activities or provided opportunities to appear as guests during team educational seminars.

Please be aware that Virginia Tech will immediately notify the applicable professional organization (NFLPA, NBPA, MLBPA, etc.) if a prospective representative:
  • endangers the eligibility of a student-athlete;
  • repeatedly violates the policies of the VTPSAR; or,
  • engages in fraudulent or unscrupulous behavior.
