Athlete Agents

The Secretary of State maintains a public record of “Athlete Agents,” meaning someone who directly or indirectly recruits or solicits a student athlete to enter into an agency contract.

A person cannot claim to be an Athlete Agent until he or she receives a Certificate of Registration from our office.

You are exempt from registration only if the student, or someone acting on behalf of the student, contacts you; however, within 7 days of that initial point of contact you must register with our office.

Filing Tips

  • Double check: is your application notarized? Did you include the filing fee?
  • No bond is required for an Arizona Athlete Agent registration or renewal.
  • A duplicate certificate is $3 and can be requested with a public records request form.
  • The public listing search is updated during the first and third week of the month.
  • Copies of received applications can be requested with a Public Record Request Form (PDF). Plain copies of applications on file are 10 cents per page, and include $3 extra per request if you require certified copies. An application is kept on file for 6 years after it has been filed, cancelled or revoked.
