Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

So 2 local school districts just inked apparel deals. YISD - Nike and EPISD - Under Armour. Is this a good deal?

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Man why hasnt that made national news like when these other schools make the deals. El paso never gets credit.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

I think this is great for schools and kids. They all deserve it. Personally I believe that both brands are awesome. Nike is on the top and Under Armour is making a run.

EPISD just announced their partnership on 4/19/16

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Nice for all these schools.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

I was talkong about national news like when i see it about these big schools. Man this is awesome that our coaches arent going to have to pay for any apparel anymore. That money can be used for education now.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Are you kidding me this Nike and Under Armour deal with El Paso entities won't make national news. It should.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Does not matter if it made national news.

It's great news for the districts and that is what really matters.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Congratulations YISD and EPISD

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

So what is up with SISD? Are they not making a deal with a company? Adidas maybe?

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

I think socorro isd is already on some kind of deal. at least maybe by school maybe not as a district.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

That would be great if SISD and adidas made a deal

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Most of Sisd schools are under armor

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Hmmmm I wonder why they made those deals over a deal with captain obvious fine quality apparel. I apologize for my thinking out loud please proceed.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

These deals are not directly with these apparel companies. They are with the distributors. It's not good because it limits choices for uniforms and eliminates competition between distributors who are competing for the high schools business which means coaches may not necessarily be getting the best prices for products such as uniforms. What you think these districts are getting is in the article below, but it's not this.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

So the schools aren't being supplied with gear from these companies? So what have the districts signed?

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

More than likely 3rd party deals to eliminate the mom and pop small businesses. Just my opinion.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Now I'm so confused. I thought we were signing deals to get free stuff. If we are signing deals to give all of our money to a vendor that doesnt seem even legal with tazx payer dollars does it

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Well, that's pretty much what's happening. I'm sure the deal is with BSN. Inquire for yourself.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

How could we inquire

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Shouldn't those central offices know. As a taxpaying resident of the district, I'm assuming they can tell you exactly who they signed a contract with.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

The same central office that has had people escorted out by the fbi all week.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Yeah, that's one of them.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Lol

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

What the??? I thought EPISD made a deal with Under Armour? New Irvin uni's by Adidas?



Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Hearing bad things about that deal. but they might have ordered these uniforms while back and they just are now coming in. Never know. But they look nice

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

...nothing wrong with the NIKE or UA deal....many of these coaches utilize their own contacts and "friends"....look where that got FELIZ...in the long run these deals are good for the Districts!....these uniforms were probably ordered 6 months ago before the deal...supporter..(stirring the pot)...
these deals had much to do with accountability and paper trails....does away with coaches making back door deals...and parents wondering where the heck the money went?...also helps those schools with less money afford new uniforms etc..etc...I think both superintendents know what they are doing....EPISD just awarded stadium for JEFFERSON....so they are doing a great job!!

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

I'm talking about the ua deal with episd. Heard it wasn't Done and that it has since changed. From the vendor side. Not stirring any pot.

These deals are not good for the districts. Competition is good for the schools. Competition brings lower prices and more options, when you take that away and go with one distributor (that distributes that one brand, because the deal is not actually with Nike or UA) then you limit yourself and the kids get cheated by having cookie cutter uniform that almost every other team in district will have with a different color. The deals that Allen and Southlake Carroll received....those are legit and directly with the company. Veliz's issue was a personal thing and not all coaches skirt the rules with the funds.

Re: Ysleta - Nike & EPISD - UA

Any new updates on the deals?
