ROCHESTER - The Monroe Community College athletics department has announced an exclusive partnership with athletic apparel giant Under Armour through an agreement signed with BSN SPORTS, a leading distributor of sporting goods, apparel, and equipment.
The five-year deal will cover the institution's 11 intercollegiate athletic programs and provide student-athletes, coaches, and staff with access to Under Armour competition and training uniforms, as well as shoes, equipment, and other supplies offered through BSN SPORTS.
"We are incredibly excited to partner with BSN and UA," said Aaron Bouyea, MCC Director of Athletics. "Our partnership brings an immense amount of benefits to our student-athletes while unifying and strengthening our brand by bringing all programs under one umbrella."
