Surprise, AZ – The OUAZ Spirit Athletic Department announced on Friday, that they have entered into an agreement with Adidas to be the official outfitter for OUAZ Spirit athletics; beginning this fall. The Spirit will offer 21 sports in their inaugural season, which begins later this fall.
“It is a pleasure and a privilege to have the OUAZ Spirit Athletics brand alongside Adidas,” said OUAZ Director of Athletics Kevin Steele. “Adidas is a world renowned company whose products are respected and sought after by all who seriously know athletics. My thanks to Kendall Whitley, the Director of Western Region Team Sports for Adidas as well as Billy Baber and Mike Maslowski of MB2 Sports who worked diligently with us to make this partnership a reality. Our student-athletes will be equipped with the finest uniforms, shoes and equipment in the world and we proudly align ourselves with this outstanding brand. OUAZ Athletics and Adidas—great partners.”
Everything at Adidas reflects the spirit of their founder Adi Dassler. His main objective was to make athletes better, with innovation at the heart of all Adidas Sport Performance products. To underline their credibility as the multi-sport specialist and leverage brand strength, there is hardly any category that they don’t produce products for. Adidas is everywhere where the best meet the best, such as the FIFA World Cup™ or the Olympic Games, but also everywhere else around the globe where sports are simply played, watched, enjoyed and celebrated.
Adidas is not just designing products for all kinds of sports. They are designing products for athletes. Athletes always strive for their personal best. Athletes find inspiration in sports no matter what they do. Adidas helps them to achieve their peak performance by making them faster, stronger, smarter and cooler.
OUAZ sponsors 21 sports that include: Baseball, Cheer & Dance, Football, Men’s and Women’s Cross Country/Track & Field, Men’s and Women’s Golf, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Men’s and Women’s Tennis, Men’s and Women’s Volleyball, Men’s and Women’s Basketball, and Softball.
