Sign Up for the League

The League is Sport’s Authority’s rewards card.

There are other perks such as bonus offers throughout the year, and sometimes double points can be earned as well.

Clearance Shoes

Before paying full price for shoes, first look in the clearance shoe section. They have great deals for children, men, and women.

Buy Children’s Shoes

    Some great tips here – I never even thought about trying on kids’ shoes! Awesome! And I didn’t know about the discount for coaches – I know a coach I will share this with. And it’s always nice when you spend your money at a store and they give some of it back! :-)
