Prepare to see a lot more Swooshes around the Penn State University Athletic Conference.

Branch campus athletic programs from Penn State have agreed to a four-year deal with Nike, via BSN Sports, for apparel and equipment.

The agreement kicks in July 1.

The deal, part of the BSN Sports Collegiate Select Program, includes incentives for the schools, among them discounts and rewards for on-field achievements.

“Nike is the official uniform, footwear and apparel provider for Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics, and this effort helps us connect all of our Intercollegiate Athletics programs across the Penn State footprint,” said Kelly Austin, Associate Vice President for Commonwealth Campuses. “We are excited to partner with Nike and BSN Sports to strengthen the Penn State brand across Pennsylvania, as well as provide quality products to the over 2,400 student-athletes that participate within our Intercollegiate Athletics programs.”

PSU branch schools include Abington, Altoona, Beaver, Behrend, Berks, Brandywine, Dubois, Fayette, Greater Allegheny, Harrisburg, Hazleton, Lehigh Valley, Mont Alto, New Kensington, Schuylkill, Shenango, Wilkes-Barre, Worthington Scranton and York.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
