CALIFORNIA PASSES BILL TO GET STUDENT ATHLETES PAID!!!

The “Pay for Play” Act or bill SB-206 passed by California State legislature will allow for student athletes to be compensated for their names and likeness. The bill will go into effect January 2023.

But the NCAA is not happy about it. They feel that it will undermine the spirit of “Ametuerism” and make students ineligible to compete. They feel students should focus on education not getting paid.

Ca. Legisture argues that for years NCAA have benefited off of young Men and Women living their dream and not being compendated. Young Men and Women who go to school, play sports and have to work all while the NCAA takes in over a Billion dollars a year using their likeness, name and talent.
