Welcome // 2018 intake

Tired of your current employment or study ?  Love your sport but don’t know where to start to get a gig ?   Wondering doesn’t get you a gig. Industry experience does.   Fact.

Flying Start’s  6 week Online Course “How to be a Sports Agent” hosted by the Pioneer of Sports Management in this Country Ricky Nixon is the perfect industry education you need to commence a career as a Sports Agent or Administrator.   Over the past 20 years Flying Start has managed the biggest Superstars in the AFL including Wayne CareyGary Ablett SnrMichael VossMatthew RichardsonMark RiccuitoSimon Black and Jason Dunstall.

University Courses and degrees are not what Athletes look for when appointing an Agent.  They want to know what experience and knowledge you have of the industry what experience or knowledge you have when it comes to negotiating contracts, finding endorsements and things like crisis management and people management etc.    No University Lecturers (we’re aware of) have lived and breathed AFL for 30 years including playing for over a decade and day in day out managing Players.   Something Victoria University acknowledged when they inserted our course in to their sports degrees.

The course in summary:

  1. The course is run over 6 weeks.   You start as soon as you enrol.  The course has run for 20 years and is updated annually.
  2. The course gives you everything a University doesn’t.   It gives you real industry experience something Athletes will ask you when you approach them for management.
  3. You do the course in your own time it does not interfere with your work or studies.  Every week you get a to speak to Ricky Nixon live.
  4. How the week pans out:   On a Friday you receive weekly curriculum notes on the subject ie “How to negotiate contracts” additionally you get a video lecture link.   You read the curriculum notes and watch the video lecture in your own time which takes approximately an hour.  You then create your own questions to ask Ricky Nixon each week.


The cost of the course is $375
