Skullcandy Teams With High School’s Legendary Programs
Words. High School Hoop
Skullcandy has been one of the few non-apparel brands that has been able to make real, authentic inroads in basketball culture in recent years. The brand already has deals with legit NBA endorsers like Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Andre Iguodala, and now they’ve gone and forged a relationship with two of high school’s most legendary programs.
Today Skullcandy announced that they have official partnerships with Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) and Simeon Career Academy (Chicago, home of Jabari Parker), as well as the Nike Extravaganza Tournament at Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.).
As part of the agreement, the sponsored high schools will receive headphones customized to match school colors and logos for use by boys and girls basketball teams. The school will provide the headphones to players for use during the basketball season particularly while the players are traveling for away games. In addition, Skullcandy will provide headphones to the schools’ computer labs and libraries for academic enhancement to be used by all students at the participating schools. The schools will also have the option to sell customized headphones on campus as a fundraising opportunity and will retain 100% of all profits made from these sales.
