AAE Renews Partnership as USA Field Hockey’s Official Equipment Supplier
by USA Field Hockey
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - USA Field Hockey and AAE (Aluminum Athletic Equipment Co.), a leading sports equipment manufacturer in the United States, will continue to work together to grow and support the sport of field hockey by supplying programs of all levels with critical infrastructure equipment and products. A USA Field Hockey partner since 2021, AAE supplies full-size competition goals for both outdoor and indoor, as well as boards and other equipment. AAE continues in the designation as “Official Equipment Supplier” and sponsor of USA Field Hockey.
“It has been a fruitful and productive partnership,” said Tom Syron, AAE Vice President of Sales. “USA Field Hockey has been a terrific partner and has helped us develop relationships with a number of college and club programs. We are thrilled to see Team USA’s national caliber athletes interact with our equipment, just as we are thrilled to serve organizations like the Philadelphia Eagles, Penn Relays and countless schools and universities throughout the country.”
AAE also continues to support USA Field Hockey’s Starter Kit Program by offering discounted prices on equipment to new recreation, club and school programs and new facilities and is designated as a USA Field Hockey presenting sponsor.
Most recently, AAE has been working on a prototype for a unique board system for Hockey5s with input and support from USA Field Hockey’s staff and athletes to determine the best rebound and functionality as that style of the game promises to become more popular in the United States.
AAE offers premium high school, college and international field hockey goals. It supplies heavy-duty nets, goal wheels, removable bottom board cushioning systems, indoor goals and aluminum side boards with a unique, patented angle that keeps the ball in play more than traditional wooden boards. Additionally, AAE sells portable scoring tables, team benches and BallStopper safety netting for field hockey fields.
For 70 years, AAE has been a leading United States manufacturer of athletic equipment for scholastic, collegiate, professional and international teams and competitions. The company designs, builds, sells and services all products direct from its Royersford, Pa. headquarters.
“Between the efficient and smart equipment design and smooth functionality, along with the superior discounts USA Field Hockey Members receive, the partnership with AAE is a win-win for all,” said Ginger Wheeler, USA Field Hockey’s Commercial Partnership and Marketing Manager. “We are excited to watch AAE become the ‘go-to place’ for everything field hockey related for facilities departments around the country.”
As part of the USA Field Hockey and AAE partnership, USA Field Hockey Members will receive a 15% discount on AAE field hockey equipment and 5% off all other AAE equipment. USA Field Hockey and AAE hope this substantial savings will help serve the field hockey community and show the outstanding value of a USA Field Hockey Membership.
