Source for Sports is the largest independent sporting goods buying group in the world. Sports Etc is a proud member of this group, and our access to the group allows us to offer some of the best deals in hockey equipment that you will only find exclusively at Source for Sports retailers in the United States and Canada.
To get a better idea of what this means, here is a quick overview: Because of our large buying power as a group, hockey manufacturers like CCM and Bauer cater to members of the Source for Sports group to create hockey equipment made to our specifications. More simply put, this allows us to offer higher-end products at a more affordable price.
Here are a few examples:
The CCM Jetspeed Vibe hockey skate is sold for $299.99 retail, but contains many high-end features that are typically on a skate that costs $799+. The boot is full composite, which is an NHL caliber construction. Similarly, the steel on the skate is + 2mm in length, which is another key feature in many premier hockey skates.
The Bauer Vapor XShift hockey stick is based off the Bauer European Team stick, which is used in professional/junior leagues across the world. The added performance upgrades include high-end shaft and blade constructions that are typically on a stick in the $269.99+ range, but we are able to offer it at $159.99. Nearly $100 savings without sacrificing any performance on the ice.
