Dick's Sporting Goods opens first west coast Team Sports HQ
Weeks after reporting a positive first quarter performance, Dick’s Sporting Goods announced the opening of a new Team Sports HQ office in San Diego that will serve as a west coast technology and innovation center.
Dick’s Team Sports HQ is an all-in-one service that equips and supports youth leagues, including the US Youth Soccer, PONY Baseball and Softball, and National Police Athletic League, among others. The retailer currently operates Team Sports HQ offices in New York, Atlanta and Pittsburgh.
The new San Diego tech center supports the sports retailer’s digital transformation efforts and will provide cloud based administrative infrastructure, management solutions, analytics and communications to National Governing Body (NGB) customers through Dick’s Team Sports HQ for many of the largest youth sporting associations in the US. The center will also house the former Affinity Sports, which Dick’s acquired in 2016.
"Dick's recognizes the important role associations and volunteers play in attracting, organizing and administering youth sports across the country,” said Ed Plummer, SVP, Dick's Team Sports HQ. “Our new Dick's Team Sports HQ west coast technology and innovation center showcases our commitment to providing an enterprise platform to empower sports associations to spend less time on the administrative efforts of running a league and more time coaching young athletes."
Dick’s Sporting Goods currently operates over 690 retail locations and plans to open 13 more stores in the second quarter of its fiscal year.
