Why do I need this bond?

Texas athlete agent surety bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (athlete agents) do the following:

  • faithfully discharge all obligations, duties and responsibilities under Chapter 2051, Occupations Code
  • pay any administrative penalty under subchapter J, Chapter 2051
  • pay damages awarded to an institution of higher education or an athlete as a result of the agent offering or providing a thing of value to an athlete or family member of the athlete

The bond protects the state and any person harmed as a result of the agent’s unethical and unlawful business practices.

What’s the fine print?

Athlete agent surety bonds in Texas must be maintained for at least 2 years after the date the principal ceases to provide financial services to an athlete or the date the principal’s certificate of registration expires, whichever is later.

These bonds remain in full force and effect until canceled or terminated. The principal or the surety can cancel the bond by providing written notice of intent to cancel to the Secretary of State, Registrations Unit at least 60 days prior to the effective date of cancellation. If the surety cancels the bond, it must notify the principal of the impending cancellation within the same time frame.
