PHILADELPHIA, May 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In mid-April, Courtney Altemus (TeamAltemus Founder and CEO) moderated a LEAD1-hosted webinar about what the future of NIL means for collegiate athletic departments. She was joined by: Jack Swarbrick (Notre Dame University AD), Julie Cromer (Ohio University AD) and Matt Elliott (UCLA Senior Associate AD). The conversation focused on shared excitement about the widespread opportunity the NIL rule change will bring to student-athletes across all NCAA sub-divisions. There was also consensus and enthusiasm for the need for education and support.
"Based on what we've heard from our student-athletes they are hungry for education, and I think it's our responsibility to give that to them…" -Julie Cromer
Altemus says, "Effective education will be the difference maker. There will be tremendous opportunity for student-athletes to create successful, life-skills-developing opportunities for themselves. Without the proper tools and education, NIL could become a distracting, misguided pursuit that is ultimately detrimental to a student-athlete's academic and athletic development."
In addition to the newsletter, TeamAltemus is excited to roll out NIL-tailored educational tools to help student-athletes optimize their opportunities. The uncertainty and budget constraints caused by the pandemic will not impact student-athletes' access to information. TeamAltemus offerings will continue to be available to student-athletes via both in-person (when safe to resume) and virtually. Additionally, tools will be offered to help athletic department staff enhance knowledge to provide NIL-specific guidance to student-athletes.
A foundation of solid money habits, opportunity cost analysis, comprehensive due diligence and strong decision-making skills will be the anchor that allows collegiate athletes to achieve success in the NIL world and in life after college.
