Introducing BCG Plus Activewear

Perfect isn’t the goal. It never was. But finding strength in empowerment — now that’s a movement we can get behind.

When creating this line, Academy Sports + Outdoors put extra love into everything designed. The fabrics selected, the cuts sketched, and the features added all played a part in creating an affordable collection that was made for the active woman — no matter her size.

So now, when empowerment comes up, it’s not a distant reality. It’s something you feel every time you throw on your BCG Plus to conquer the day.That’s all the perfection we need to get by. Be sure to stop by the Academy Sports + Outdoors exhibit to see the fun and exciting BCG Plus line.
