The Department of Athletics is pleased to partner with BJ's Custom Creations for athletic team apparel and fan gear. We’re also excited to partner with Boathouse Sports for the Mercersburg Athletics jacket.

This store features several options for student-athletes, families, and fans to show their Blue Storm pride. Fans and athletes can place an order for any sport, from any season. (see options listed on order site). Not sure about your sport or plan to participate in more than one? Go with 'Mercersburg Athletics' on your shirt!
Teams may also order other, optional spirit wear after seasons begin throughout the year.
Two Fall 2019 teams require items for practice. Boys' soccer players and football players are required to purchase the Badger 9" inseam shorts and the UnderArmour Men's Short Sleeve Shirt (first one listed, there are two).

A. Coaches designate certain items as required for practices and some team activities. Any athlete participating in that sport is required to purchase the items in the team pack. Typically this includes a workout shirt and shorts; some teams (soccer, field hockey) also require purchase of socks for games.
Spirit wear items (sweatshirts, hats, long-sleeve Ts, etc.) are completely optional, but many of our athletes (and their siblings, parents, and other fans) want to show their team spirit on campus and at home!
