Under Armour is here! Westlake Academy has partnered with UA for its athletic program and we are excited to be a part of the UA family. What does this mean for us? First, all of our sports team will be wearing UA uniforms. This process will take a couple of years (high school first, then JH) to fully implement, however our athletes are going to take the court/field in high quality and up to date uniforms. By the way, the new varsity volleyball jerseys are in and a big hit with the players. In addition, the Westlake community will have the opportunity to purchase UA gear as well so that everyone can look just as great as the teams.
So here is how it works:
*** Each sports program (Ex; Volleyball, Cross Country, Football, etc) will have its own store. The fall sports stores are opening soon and below will be the link to the stores for each sport. The stores are only open for a short period of time in order to get the merchandise shipped in a timely manner.
*** None of the items in the store are mandatory purchases. However, we are highly recommending a couple of items. Each store will have the following:
### - UA Rival Warm Up Jacket & UA Rival Warm Up Pant
### - UA Hustle Backpack II
A goal of the athletic department has been to have our players travel to games and even come to home games dressed in the same fashion. By purchasing the Jack and Pant warm up this can be accomplished. The warm up top has embroidered “Westlake Blacksmiths” with the hammer logo. It is a generic athletic logo and not sports specific so that the suit can be worn for every sport which allows a fall sport athlete to also wear it in the winter and spring.
The backpack falls into the same category as the sweat suit as each player can use it to carry their gear (other than football). Plus, it could be used for school as well.
Again these are not mandatory however we highly recommend them to be purchased.
*** Parents, you are free to make purchases off of the team sports site as well. HOWEVER, there will be a “community” store opening for all of the Westlake community that will have more offerings for adults and children! These will include Polo shirts, jackets, etc designed especially for you. The store is currently under construction with the launch date to coincide with back to school nights. This opportunity is exciting as we have heard for years from parents wanting to buy WA gear with the athletics logo. Now you can!
*** Items purchased will be shipped to the school and once they arrive you will be notified to pick them up at the field house.
Please note that this does not change how registration fee’s for each sport. The fee’s will still be needed to pay for entry fee’s, officials, Bus costs, equipment, purchase of new UA uniforms, plus other costs associated with running a sports program. The UA store is an added bonus for Westlake Academy Athletics.
