Academy is great for the outdoors person or anyone who is into sports of any kind. They have something for just about any sport or outdoor activity. They have a huge selection of sporting/outdoor goods. You can also buy your licenses there (hunting, fishing). They have a big selection of clothes and shoes also in children's and adults. They have very good clearance sales also from time to time. I just recently got my daughter a $90 Nike softball glove for $19.99!! Great prices and a very big variety. It can occasionally be hard to find an associate but they very helpful when you are able to get one.
