LOS ANGELES — Specialty sporting goods retailer Sport Chalet is positioning itself as a one-stop shop for school-based fan apparel, field gear and fundraising needs with new online order site and streamlined solution The Sport Chalet Team Site.
Chaminade College Prep, Esperanza High School, Tesoro High School, Triton Touch Down Club and Torrey Pines High School are among early Team Site adopters.
Schools can use the site portal to create a team-dedicated hub to support player and spectator orders across an extensive inventory of customized apparel, footwear and equipment. Logo design is pre-selected by the school to ensure brand consistency. Additionally, flexible shipment options allow customers to receive product orders directly at the school, the teams’ homes or the nearest Sport Chalet retail store for pickup.
"Schools need a convenient and reliable channel where teams and families can purchase gear without the usual order fulfillment nightmares," said chairman and CEO Craig Levra. "With the Sport Chalet Team Site, school staff will no longer have to manage order forms, checks, or cash from athletes and parents. Not to mention that schools can take advantage of the site's tools to raise funds by offering spirit and fan gear to the entire student body, friends and family."
The Sport Chalet Team Site — built on the KitOrder platform, a leading team e-commerce solution — streamlines all order form submissions and payment collections. In addition to schools, the Sport Chalet Team Site is also available to community groups such as clubs, churches, sports leagues and any other organized teams.
