DSU partners with Nike, BSN Sports

The Dickinson State University Athletic Department signed a deal with athletic apparel providers Nike and BSN Sports this week, an agreement that will not only allow uniforms to be alike in color and style but will also benefit the department.

The Dickinson State University Athletic Department signed a deal with athletic apparel providers Nike and BSN Sports this week, an agreement that will not only allow uniforms to be alike in color and style but will also benefit the department.

"[BSN] will also be giving back in rebates to our uniforms so it'll be a savings for us," interim Athletic Director Pete Stanton said. "And they'll also be giving back to our booster club which will help for scholarships."

This doesn't mean every team will start their season with brand new uniforms. Some received new ones last year, so to make things simpler, Stanton said teams will be put on a uniform rotation.

DSU has never signed a contract like this one, but the fact that the pact gives back to the department and Blue Hawk Booster Club was an important factor in the decision, said Stanton.

While the deal makes Nike the official uniform apparel provider for the Blue Hawks, coaches aren't limited to just purchasing Nike equipment and clothing.

"The big equipment things like sleds and shooting machines or pitching machines," Stanton said. "But we'll still be able to get our clothing and products from local vendors."
