Rousch's personal Bio and Athlete page
Sports-Management takes very seriously its responsibilities as player representatives
and does not treat the client as one of many. When a client has a
question, a problem, an injury or needs a new contract, SMC responds
immediately by giving undivided attention until the issue is resolved to
the client's satisfaction. Regardless of who they are.
The best interest of the player remains SMC's focus and whether in the
NHL, AHL, ECHL, Europe or any other professional league, the client
receives personal attention, guidance and service.
Professional hockey is an extremely competitive and highly visible
industry where the athlete's peak earning potential is achieved in
relatively few years. As a professional athlete, your income must be
fully maximized during your playing years with sufficient protection of
your earning potential over the long term.
To achieve this long and short-term objective, SMC will first and
foremost negotiate the best personal service contract that provides you
with financial security to concentrate on building your professional
career. Each client's contract is different and SMC recognizes that
individual attention must be given to each contract.
SMC firmly believes that the first stage towards proper representation
is a successfully negotiated contract.
