What We Do
At SPARC, our foremost commitment is to the long term success of our clients. We have structured our organization to handle the various responsibilities of our clients, which allows them to focus proper time and energy on their professional career. These services include, but are not limited to: contract negotiations, financial management, tax preparation, public relations and social media, athletic training and career development. In addition, we stress the importance of continuing education, off-season internships and community service in preparation for the later stages of our client's career.
NFL DRAFT PREPARATION
We provide in-depth position evaluation and customized training plans to help our clients prepare for the NFL Scouting Combine and pro-day testing. When we consider on- or off-campus training, SPARC evaluates the needs of each client and determines the best path forward for NFL Draft preparation.
Professional athletes only have a small window of playing time to earn as much money as possible, so it is crucial that we make the most of every contract negotiation. SPARC is committed to negotiating the maximum total and guaranteed compensation while at the same time structuring contracts with minimal negative conditions.

MARKETING & ENDORSEMENTS
There is not a "one size fits all" model when it comes to client marketing and brand development. Our current contacts and expertise allows us the ability to develop marketing plans that will provide our clients with various opportunities to earn significant additional revenue through regional and national marketing and endorsements.
One of our main goals is to ensure that our clients have a lifetime of financial security with minimal risk. Therefore, we have aligned ourselves with some of the industry's most knowledgeable and competent advisors for wealth management and tax planning to bring the best services to our players.
Every time an player steps on the football field, they face the risk of a career-ending injury. This makes disability insurance every bit as important, as their pads and helmet, to protecting the livelihood of our clients. We work with insurance industry experts to ensure that our clients obtain the best coverage at competitive rates.
PUBLIC RELATIONS & SOCIAL MEDIA
We understand the impact that media can have on the public’s perception of an athlete. With that in mind, we will build a social media strategy, complimented by community service efforts, that will enhance our client’s brand equity by allowing them to communicate with their fans and develop a positive image in the community.
OFF-SEASON TRAINING & HEALTHCARE
Physical conditioning and strength development are key factors in the longevity and success of our client's careers. SPARC offers off-season strength and conditioning and position specific training to keep clients in top physical condition. This includes access to a select team of top doctors, therapists, nutritionists and athletic trainers.
CAREER PLANNING & PHILANTHROPY
Career planning is a major focus at SPARC. We assist in securing off-season internships and educational opportunities that will hone our client's business skills and broaden their perspective. Our clients are encouraged to take part in various non-profit activities and leverage their unique position to bring about positive change in the community.
