ATHLETES MAKING MOVES© is the First Name, Image, and Likeness book for every athlete.

The Protector uses storytelling that teaches athletes how to shift their mindsets, create and develop deeper self-accountability, and use the power of education when dealing with issues like athletes’ legal rights, brand, and team management, conflict of issues, safeguarding assets, athletic entrepreneurism, budgeting, and team curation, and more.

Game Changer


"The landscape of business in sports has completely changed and athletes are becoming more empowered to protect their name and use it to benefit themselves. This is especially important in college athletics and this book is an eye opener and a great guide for athletes who want to take control!"

The book athletes need TODAY!


"This couldn't be more timely! With all the excitement and confusion surrounding the new Name, Image, and Likeness rule, athletes and schools don't know what to expect. Thankfully, sports law expert Sivonnia DeBarros breaks down the rule and its implications in this easy-to-understand guidebook. This book should be required reading for all college athletes, sports agents, and athletic directors!"

Great resource for young athletes in the NIL era


"Athletes Making Moves" is a great resource for young athletes preparing to monetize their personal brand in this new era of collegiate athletics. Outside of the "glitz and glam" of getting paid for social media endorsements, appearances, or autographs, there are tons of issues that athletes need to be aware of to successfully navigate this new space. DeBarros makes this information easily digestible and even fun!"

A Must-Read!!!


"Athletes Making Moves is the go-to resource for any athlete (from the high school elite athlete to the already pro athlete) serious about their career, name, image and likeness.
Sivonnia shares it ALL with simplicity and many real life examples - while giving you the tough love… And she does it strategically in the name of a successful and legally peaceful sports career. A must-read!"

EXCELLENT writing!


"I absolutely LOVE the book and EXCELLENT writing! There is so much information to glean. Again, you have sparked my interests about several other things. If this works for sports, what about our students that are talented in other areas like, singing, instruments, the arts in general."
