Athletics Dept. Announces Under Armour/BSN Sports Apparel Agreement
Jefferson College has agreed to an exclusive athletic apparel agreement with BSN Sports of Fenton and nationally renowned brand Under Armour to outfit Viking student-athletes for the next five years.
Under the agreement, Jefferson College will purchase Under Armour shoes, uniforms and other athletic apparel exclusively from BSN Sports while receiving a signing bonus along with discounts and rebates based on the annual volume of sales generated.
“Our goal is to not only build great teams at Jefferson College, but also to create a unified Vikings Athletics department that prides itself on representing our institution with class and distinction,” said Director of Athletics Greg McVey. “Having consistency across all sports and ensuring all our student-athletes have a great experience is crucial to this goal. Through this new partnership, our student-athletes will be equipped with high quality apparel from a nationally respected vendor like Under Armour, creating a consistent look and feel that is professional and in keeping with the College’s longstanding tradition of athletic excellence.”
Under Armour, which was founded in 1996, is the originator of performance apparel engineered to keep athletes cool, dry and light throughout the course of a game, practice or work-out. Under Armour aligns directly with Jefferson College and its student-athletes in its passion about sports and seeking excellence in all aspects.
BSN Sports, founded in 1972, has established itself as the largest distributor of team sports apparel and equipment in the United States. “BSN SPORTS is excited to partner with Jefferson College and Under Armour,” said Kenny Goellner of BSN Sports. “We couldn’t find two better partners than with one of the elite NJCAA athletic departments in the country and one of the largest name brands in the sports world. We look forward to an outstanding working relationship.”
