Phone: (574) 631-4837
We are the main distribution point for uniforms, practice gear, shoes, travel and gear bags and outerwear for 21 Notre Dame varsity sports (except Football and Hockey). Every October, our department staff, along with our License Property Manager from adidas, conducts individual sessions with Notre Dame coaching staffs to determine uniform and gear choices for their team for the following season. We place orders with adidas, then receive, inventory and store these items to eventually distribute the ordered gear to teams and athletes each fall as school begins. During our issuing periods student managers help to organize and distribute gear to the Notre Dame athletes via locker rooms or pick up at the Equipment facility, located in the very center of they Joyce Center.
In addition, Equipment handles the ordering and fulfillment needs for adidas products for Notre Dame’s coaches, administrators, facilities crews, sports medicine doctors and interns. We also fulfill requests for Athletic’s Corporate Relations and the Development Office.
Other services include Monogram orders for all athletes, Post Season awards and gifts, retrieval of equipment and reusable apparel.
How We Work
The Equipment Division follows a fairly consistent annual pattern, with ordering done in the fall and inventory arriving in the summer in preparation for issuance prior to the beginning of each sport’s season. A barcode system helps us manage our inventory internally.
adidas & Notre Dame
Team Notre Dame Partner, and official outfitter of Notre Dame Athletics, adidas has provided uniforms, shoes and apparel for Notre Dame Athletics teams for over 15 years. The adidas contract extends to the 2015 season ensuring that Notre Dame student-athletes will be outfitted in adidas gear with plans to hopefully continue this relationship.
