The NIL ERA brought about a new era in SPORTS. The ability for collegiate players to make money for their efforts. BEYOND that, it shed light in the perfet time in history for current and past athletes to reasses their ability to capitalize on their name, image and likeness.

Whether you are an athlete, coach, athletic director, or athletic staff, the SACA is the right place for you!
We had to come up with a snappy name for this association. So, where your thoughts may be this may not be the right group for me, we took liberalities with the definition of a Semi-Pro Athlete in the face of NIL rulings allowing college athletes the ability to make money.
OUR definition is Semi-professionals are not amateur.
Any athlete receiving regular payment from their team, or through sponsorships but generally at a considerably lower rate than a full-time premium professional athlete.
With this definition we consider professional athletes who may be in the Development league, on the practice squad, plays overseas, in the Big3 or XFL or equivalent leagues eligible for this association.
Athletic Directors, Coaches, Trainers, and other sports professionals have just as much at stake as athletes. Equally, they are potentially able to be recruited to another team, transfer etc in order to advance their career.
The SACA is the place for athletes, and athlete-adjacent professionals to learn and grow.
Building a brand, Y-O-U, is imperative to gaining attention worthy of attracting sponsorships, endorsement deals, placement on teams, getting drafted, etc.
We are different where as we a looking at the business side of branding. Helping to educate you about necessary tools and develop skills that make you a better brand and business.
