DICK'S Sporting Goods Shop Day Was A Success, New Coupons Available

South Durham Little League continued its partnership with DICK'S Sporting Goods' New Hope Commons in 2017. Over the last couple of years, this has been a great benefit to the league as DICK'S has provided needed equipment and discounts on gear for the league, our players and their families.

Thank you to all of the SDLL families and friends that came out to support us and DICK'S Sporting Goods on Shop Day.

DICK'S Sporting Goods has also provided us with additional coupons good for most of this year available here: DICK'S SDLL Coupons (valid through 11/30/17)
