“I've got a theory that
if you give 100 percent all of the time, somehow things will
work out in the end.” - Larry Bird
Being a coach these days isn’t easy. Between travel, recruiting,
practice, game day preparation and a host of other
responsibilities, coaches rarely have an opportunity to build
the relationships necessary to take their careers to the next
level. As any good coach will tell you, the key to success is
teamwork; uncommon individuals working towards a common goal. At
GAME, Inc. we believe in just that – working hand in hand to
create opportunities for our clients.
But maybe we shouldn’t call it an opportunity. As Seth Godin
once said, “it’s not an opportunity, it’s an obligation”. At
GAME, Inc. we believe that our organization and our clients have
an obligation to change the rules, to raise the bar, to play a
different game, and to play it better than anyone has any right
to believe is possible.
Possessing the knowledge and expertise needed for effective
sports representation, GAME, Inc. is unique in its ability to
offer the most personalized and progressive line of services to
coaches today. GAME, Inc.’s trademark is career management and
marketing; our agency develops relationships with our clients
that transcend business in order to allow them to obtain their
ultimate goals, both on and off the field.
