Athlete agents; registration required; void contracts
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 39-E
§ 899-c. Athlete agents; registration required; void contracts. 1.
Except as otherwise provided in subdivision two of this section, an
individual shall not act as an athlete agent in this state without
holding a certificate of registration issued pursuant to section eight
hundred ninety-nine-e of this article.

2. Before being issued a certificate of registration, an individual
may act as an athlete agent in this state for all purposes except
signing an agency contract, if:

(a) a student-athlete or another person acting on behalf of the
student-athlete initiates communication with such individual; and

(b) within seven days after an initial act as an athlete agent, such
individual submits an application for registration as an athlete agent
in this state.

3. An agency contract resulting from conduct in violation of this
section shall be void. In the event a student-athlete voids an agency
contract, the student-athlete shall not be required to pay any
consideration under such contract or to return any consideration
received from the athlete agent to induce the student-athlete to enter
into the contract, and the athlete agent shall be required to return any
consideration received pursuant to such voided agency contract.

4. An agency contract shall be void and unenforceable unless it is in
writing.
