FREE AGENTS: READ THIS!
Common mistake of professional players? They do not invest in their futures and prepare for their next job. They wait at home and think some email, or website, or even psuedo agent, will find them their next overseas job. The biggest mistake is these players do not understand that there are over 8000 available players fighting for less than 1000 jobs, and worst of all, all of these jobs are already filled by someone right now!
Normal “workers in the world” looking for jobs go to school, advance degrees, do continuing education, rewrite their resumes, volunteer work, do internships, attend meet and greets, network,etc. So like them.. you need to invest.
Work as a counselor at one of our free agent camps. Here is how it works.
- The price?: Your plane ticket and insurance only!
- We are looking for both men and women.
- Our camps are free… You work half a day and get to train/showcase half a day
- Your investment: (estimated airfare, transfers,pocket money, insurance, deposit).
- You get to practice 2 hrs each day, work out in the weight room each day, work as a counselor each day, and hopefully be networking.
- Each camp has some showcase marquee games to show off your skills.
- You will be asked to play “with” a local team, not against, so you can truly show how you fit in with a team, not show how you can fight with a bunch of other free agents on the same team to get the most stats.
- Follow these steps:
- You have to apply and be selected. Complete the form above and email to email@example.com
- You pay for round trip airfare and show ticket receipt within 6 weeks of camp or you are replaced on list Your return portion should be changeable.
- You have to have insurance and demonstrate this before we allow you to walk onto our campsite. Proof of insurance is mandatory.
- You have to have pocket money or you will starve and not have a very good time.
- At some camps we ask for a small deposit to insure hotel room damages, etc.
- Create a FREE classified ad so all can see your profile and links
- We created video ads for only $25… be on the front page and be seen easier by club managers.
