NZone Sports Management Agency is privileged to represent NFL players, collegiate coaches, and athletes in other professional sports. For over 20 years, we have been trusted and respected in the sports management industry. Our clients’ goals are the agency’s number one priority. At NZone, we continuously work to ensure that our clients are successful and maximize their opportunities on and off the field. Customer service and satisfaction are priorities within the agency, we are always searching for ways to increase visibility, marketability, and worth. Becoming a trusted sports management agency was not an overnight accomplishment. Founder and President of NZone Sports Management Agency, Frederick Lyles, Jr. was the driving force behind it all.
Frederick, an experienced college athlete, chose to service other athletes rather than pursue his professional athletic career after sustaining a football injury. Having attained an undergraduate degree from Mississippi Valley State University, Frederick went on to receive his Masters in financial management at the University of Missouri-Columbia. In 1991, NZone opened its doors to athletes and has grown to be the premier source for successful professional sports placement.
Through our extensive experience and presence worldwide, we provide services to all professional sporting genres across the globe both male and female. Over 20 years, we have demonstrated a distinctive ability to establish and draw talented athletes and match them perfectly with their dreams and aspirations. This takes knowledge of the sporting realm and a true heart to serve every client.
Lasting relationships are what NZone representatives strive to achieve with every contact we make on a daily basis. This was the original goal Frederick put in place and is now a corporate mission.
Often times there are a myriad of restrictions in our daily lives such as time and resource constraints that act as barriers to achieving our dreams. NZone work in tandem with our clients to manage opportunities within strict timetables to maximize our efforts. A large part of success is being exceptionally prepared and this first starts with time management and attention to details. Your research has landed you at the right place with the right agency, your next task, is a call to action!
