Community

Olympia Sports has always believed in supporting charitable works in an effort to give back to the communities in which we work. This can be demonstrated by Olympia’s substantial involvement with United Way, Special Olympics, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Children’s Hospital, The Jimmy Fund, and other worthy charities. Community service projects, like these, help us give back to the communities who are so supportive of us.

Team Discounts & Events

We offer two discount programs in lieu of sponsorships. We will provide team discount packages to any team or organization. This package provides discounts on necessities such as cleats and other equipment. Ask our local store manager for details. If it is a golf tournament, road race or like event we can provide coupons offering a 20% off discount on 1 item and a free Olympia Sports tee shirt. Many organizations have found these coupons helpful to enhance their welcome kits.

If you would like to request these 20% off coupons you must submit all of the following information in an email to donations@olympiasports.net. All applicants must be tax exempt, non-profit organizations as defined under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  All proposals need to be submitted in writing at least four weeks prior to the event.

Olympia Sports receives many requests for added involvement in the community through donations, event and team sponsorships, among various other requests. Because of the number of locations we have and the vast number of organizations requesting our involvement, we are unable to participate in individual sponsorships.
