NSGA has worked on behalf of team dealers since our founders fought an unjust sporting goods tax in 1927. Ninety years later, NSGA is still one of the only associations that continuously fights on the behalf of team dealers.
NSGA team dealers sell team uniforms and sports equipment to schools, coaches, recreational leagues, travel teams and more. Often team dealers will provide custom screen printing and embroidery services and maintain a retail storefront or showroom.
One big way NSGA represents you as a team dealer: NSGA attends meetings of governing bodies when pending rules changes are discussed to help advocate for the best interest of our members and to provide immediate communication of any rule changes that affect dealers' inventories.
