A sports manager is someone that is hired by either a team or an individual athlete to ensure that everything that happens off the field goes smoothly. They have numerous responsibilities that revolve around making it easier for their clients to focus on winning without worrying about the business or organization side of sports. Unlike sports agents, managers do not focus on contracts for their clients, instead managers ensure that their clients are getting the proper attention and training to allow them to compete at their highest level. Sports managers are hired at a wide variety of venues including academic institutions, amateur and professional leagues, sporting goods companies, and even sports marketing firms.
