Enter keywords to search for principals in our database. The search looks at the portion of the principal's profile where they describe their Product Lines, Target Markets, and the Sales Opportunity.
  • Describe your customers. Examples: retail, apparel, gift shop, medical, OEM, industrial, machine, component, auto, department store, distributor, wholesale, etc.
  • Note: do not include cities or states with your keywords. Territories are not part of the keyword field and will dramatically reduce your results.
  • Once you are registered with RepHunter, you can do an Advanced Search, which allows searching by Territories and more.
All Of The Words
Enter one or more words. All must be present to be included in the result. For example, the search home office will find entries with both home AND office but not necessarily as adjacent words.
The Exact Phrase
Enter quotes as part of the search. For example, "home office" (with the quotes entered) will find only entries having the exact phrase home office.
At Least One Of The Words
Put a comma or "OR" between the words. Either word must be present to be included in the result. For example home, office will find entries with either home OR office. Another more complex example: home office, copier will find entries with home AND office OR copier. Likewise for copier, home office.
Word Boundaries
The search function has been enhanced so the word boundary symbols [ and ] are no longer necessary.
Negative Keywords
To search for results that do NOT include a keyword (example: home office but not copier), use a minus sign immediately before the keyword you wish to omit.
Example: home office -copier

The Sporting Goods Industry

The sporting goods industry is a major player in retailer and consumer goods. The source of many of the most imaginative marketing slogans and ad campaigns of the past 20 years, the sporting goods industry and sporting goods companies have in many ways redefined our relationship to athleticism in our day to day lives.

Popular sporting goods include bicycle, bowling, fishing, hunting, exercise and golf equipment, in addition to uniforms and apparel. In the sporting goods industry, products generally move from a manufacturer or wholesaler to a retail store, often a major outlet or chain.

To increase your impact in the sporting goods industry, you can rely upon RepHunter for talented and experienced outside sales reps in the sporting goods industry. Increase your sales and expand into new markets with the help of RepHunter.

Did you know?

  • The US sporting goods market was valued at approximately 153 billion U.S. dollars in 2018.
  • In 2020, the U.S. sports equipment portion of the sporting goods market generated a revenue of around 14.5 billion U.S. dollars, and is expected to generate more thant USD 16 billion by 2025.
  • The industry employs over 200,000 people.
  • In 2021 approximately four in five survey respondents in the United States had at least one home fitness product in their home.
  • Independent Reps in the Sporting Goods Industry

    A friendly relation to the sportswear industry, the sporting goods industry encompasses a range of products and services used to pursue athletics activities and outdoor activities. The industry is often shaken up by new technological developments, making it an exciting space to do business in and requiring a high level of industry knowledge on the part of manufacturer and outside sales rep alike.

    To help your products make the most impact, seek out independent sales reps that can help you form relationships with retailers, athletic departments, and other organizations interested in sporting goods products. Outside sales reps can apply their highly specialized skills and experience to move your product faster and allow you to concentrate on important developments in your line, operations, and other aspects essential to running sporting goods companies effectively.

    For an outside sales representative, working with sporting goods companies on their lines is a very busy but highly rewarding experience. Work requires demonstrating products at trade shows and to clients, meeting face to face with coaches and retailers, and expressing a passion for a healthier lifestyle aided by the equipment you sell. As an outside sales rep you may find yourself living a life more defined by fitness thanks to the products and space you are supporting.

    If you are an outside sales rep or principal in the sporting goods industry, sign up for RepHunter to explore new business opportunities. RepHunter is the best place online to find new lines and connect with great sales reps. Get started today by clicking on one of our buttons to the right.

    Find Independent Sporting Goods Sales Reps Jobs

    In the sporting goods industry, as in other niches, outside sales reps often carry multiple product lines. As a commission-only sales rep, finding great hunting, camping, fishing tackle and outdoor industry lines that help you make the most commission is your bread and butter. At RepHunter we have a wide variety of principals that might be a good fit for you and provide you with the commission-based sporting good sales jobs and lines you are seeking.

    How do you find the right opportunities perfectly in line with your skills and experience in sporting goods sales? Read our tips below!

    Know Thyself

    Taking on a new line is not the same as your average sporting good sales job. To be successful as an independent sales rep in this industry, you have to put in a number of hours and create efficiencies for yourself based on your own methods of organization and your knowledge of the niche and product you are selling. When you are looking for a new line as an outside sales rep, make sure your own preferred methods of working and reporting are in line with the principal’s expectations. Wherever you can reduce friction by being naturally compatible in your working methods, do so. Sometimes this means being highly organized where your principal is less so, sometimes the opposite.

    You’ll also want to be eminently comfortable in the sport whose equipment you represent. Principals are looking for outside sales reps that already have a lifelong passion for their sport or are willing to dive in. Having experience with the equipment and with the sport in general will help you tell the stories and determine the needs of the consumer who will eventually be using your product.

    Be Creative

    As part of your sporting goods sales job as an independent rep for a new line, in all likelihood you’ll be visiting both highly specialized and more general stores. You’ll have to leverage your contacts to create mutually beneficial relationships and solidify your connections with accounts. You never know if the hardcore fishing enthusiast you sell hooks to is also a passionate golfer on the side, unless you ask! Many people who are into sports are into more than one sport, so being conversant beyond your product can help you find new sales opportunities or even new sporting goods sales lines.
