ATHLETE MANAGEMENT

Management Innovated

At Link Management, Athlete and Talent Management is redefined. Our Management Division offers services far beyond those of just contract negations. Link’s Total Athlete Management approach provides each client with a per through post career management plan that reflects a sophisticated understanding of the unique needs of our clients as athletes, market brands and private individuals. Our approach begins at the heart of the client and extents out from there.

While contracts at every level is a key part of what we do and the expertise that we provide, we recognize that our clients require a management approach that is more diverse and specialized then simply offering them contract negotiation services. Using The Athlete Office Model™ and The Link PlayerCo Planning System™, our Total Athlete Management approach is collaborative, transparent and accountable to the complex needs, professional requirements and personal goals of our clients.

Link’s Athlete Management Division, offers several Core Athlete Management Services that establishes the foundation and provides the starting point for The Link Total Athlete Management System™ and The Athlete Office Model™


PROFESSIONAL SPORTS CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS

As a fully certified athlete agency, the negotiation of a professional sports contract is our bread and butter. We have professionally trained negotiators who will ensure that the contract you end up with maximizes your professional value, while aligning with your personal needs and goals.


ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT & PERFORMANCE

Understanding that how our clients perform as an athlete directly effects the value, term and contract options they receive, we believe that we also have a responsibility to provide our clients with the resources and strategic direction that will enhance their long-term development and in-game performance. Our strategy for Athlete Development and Performance reflects the evolution of Athlete Management. Learn more here.


ENDORSEMENTS & APPEARANCES

We not only help athletes discover, develop, and refine their personal brands, but we work tirelessly to forge and solidify strategic partnerships with the corporate partners who will align with the athlete’s brand and values. This is an integral component of our Athlete Marketing division. Learn more here.


FAMILY ADVISING

We pride ourselves on our relationships with the families who have entrusted us to advise and assist them and their amateur athletes with amateur and college team placement and selection. Our team specializes and differentiates ourselves in our ability to steward the amateur athlete development process, which includes ensuring our athletes end up in the environments that will best maximize the amateur athlete’s development, both as a person and an athlete.

Post career planning is a cornerstone of Link Management and one of the most important reasons we do what we do each day. Based on Link’s core principle that Our Athletes Use Sport to Create Success in Life and Not Life to Create Success in Sport™, helping our athletes transition well is our primary focus. By pro-actively working with and preparing our athletes for this transition, we are able to maximize their post playing career opportunities.
