SMWW Offers Name, Image, & Likeness (NIL) Deal to All 520,000 NCAA and NAIA Athletes

September 14, 2021 GMT

PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Athletes across the nation are on the fast track to learning about Name, Image, and Likeness deals. With over half a million college athletes, (460,000 NCAA and over 60,000 NAIA), classes and seminars on college campuses are evolving for athletes to learn how they can participate. Sports Management Worldwide President Dr. Lynn Lashbook says,  “The athletes we speak with are busy getting their education, juggling practices, and winning games. They would love to be paid but want easy ways to get ROI. Anxiety is at an all-time high for athletes who are not the superstars getting million-dollar deals, cars, or streak dinners (ask your favorite football lineman about this). Many college athletes are experiencing anxiety and undue pressure to get NIL deals.”

As the leader in sport business education, Dr. Lynn Lashbrook, SMWW President wants  “no athlete left behind.”  Regardless of age, gender, sport, position, ability level, or division, all athletes should have the opportunity to monetize their fan base. No matter the size.

Starting immediately at SMWW, any NCAA or NAIA athlete can immediately have an NIL deal. College athletes at all levels have friends and family who would like to work in sports and/or coaches and athletic staff who want to move up the ladder in sports business. For each student referral who takes a course, SMWW will pay the referring college athlete $50. Each college athlete who registers will get a discount code assigned to them.

“This opportunity is sweet and simple. Coaches will love it. Parents will love it. Student Athletes will love it. It meets the criteria of the state and the university. This NIL deal doesn’t adversely affect the athletes lifetime brand as it is educational. The Student Athlete is not responsible for tracking, collecting, or managing the process. They can give their discount code out verbally or via social media, or even on a hand written note. They don’t need to attend seminars, or ask about hash tags, or memorize a dance routine for TikTok,” s ays Dr. Lynn Lashbrook.

Social media is stressful enough. Being a college athlete is stressful enough. Being a college student athlete is stressful enough. SMWW is doing their part to offer money to athletes at all levels, and keep it simple, so college athletes can focus on their grades and their sport.
