UCCS, Rip-It Elite Agree to Bat Deal
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs softball program announced an agreement with Rip-It Elite on Monday to be one of the few Division II teams to receive the companyâ€TMs equipment for the 2007 season.
Rip-It will be supplying UCCS with new Rip-It Elite FP bats and face guards. In return, UCCS camps and clinics will be opportunities for Rip-It to sell their products and give a percentage of their sales back to Mountain Lion softball.
UCCS will also be testing new products from the Rip-It company. Within this agreement, Rip-It is able to use the UCCS name and logo for promotional use with permission from the university.
â€œWhile it mostly deals with (NCAA Division I) universities, Rip-It is still very excited about us using the bat,â€ said UCCS coach Scott Peterson. â€œIt is wonderful for our program to have this new sponsorship deal and I am certain it will increase the visibility of UCCS.â€
Eleven Rip-It Elite FPâ€TMs have been purchased in the Denver/Colorado Springs area which is believed to be related to the success UCCS had with the Rip-It bat in fall play.
