Consumer Protection Division

Athlete Agents

The Attorney General's Office maintains the goal of protecting Indiana’s student-athletes from unethical practices of athlete agents, and also the protection of those athlete agents that properly register in this state. While there are many entities, including the National Collegiate Athletic Association, athletic conferences, and collegiate athletic departments, that have their own duties and obligations to protect student-athletes and properly registered athlete agents, the office is charged with enforcement of Indiana’s Uniform Athlete Agents Act and Deceptive Consumer Sales Act.

In connection with this enforcement mandate, the Attorney General’s Professional Licensing and Homeowner Protection Unit investigates consumer complaints against athlete agents and takes legal action on behalf of the State of Indiana.

***Attention***: The Office of the Indiana Attorney General has updated the application to become a licensed Athlete Agent in Indiana. We are changing the system we use to review applications and are requiring that all licensees reapply to facilitate that change. All active registrations will be set to expire on December 10, 2021. Any agent who wishes to maintain an active registration must submit a completed copy of the updated registration form to athleteagents@atg.in.gov. The $700.00 renewal fee is not required with this submission for those who hold a license active through January 2, 2022.

Letters have been mailed to all agents who have ever held a registration issued by this office, containing additional information, and instructions about submitting a new application. A copy of the letter can be viewed here.
