Athletes & Coaches, at both the amateur and professional level, often encounter challenges identifying appropriate U.S. immigration categories for their competition, training, or longer-term needs. International student-athletes at U.S. academic institutions (F.1 visa holders) who wish to ensure continuity of their training schedule and coaching staff are advised to plan ahead. Creative legal strategies can also be developed to augment the careers of former athletes who have subsequently transferred their innate knowledge into the coaching field, and for other high-performance sports professionals with opportunities in the U.S.
